The WWE Kids Magazine, which is a 100% official WWE publication, has dropped a huge hint about The Undertaker’s WWE future after WrestleMania 33.In case you didn’t know
The Undertaker’s retirement has been a source of speculation for many years, with most believing that he would retire in his home state of Texas last year, in front of 100,000 people.However, this did not end up being the case, despite the fact it was actually the plan for The Undertaker to lose to Shane McMahon and retire, as we outlined on a prior edition of our “DS Breaking News” show, on our podcast, “The Dirty Sheets.”You can listen to the episode by clicking the Soundcloud link below.
The Undertaker decided not to let WrestleMania 32 be his final match and returned to SmackDown in November, shortly after a hip surgery.
He was initially slated to face John Cena at WrestleMania 33 but was moved to Raw in January, when Vince McMahon soured on the John Cena vs. The Undertaker match.It’s has been repeatedly reported by Dave Meltzer, that like Mick Foley, The Undertaker WILL need a new hip soon and once he has that surgery, it will signify the end of his wrestling career.The heart of the matterYou can see the comment from WWE Kids Magazine below.
Although the WWE are trying to make money and sell tickets, these things don’t usually happen by accident.
Retiring The Undertaker is NOT usually referenced in the build up to his WrestleMania matches.However, his retirement has now been mentioned by BOTH the WWE Kids Magazine and by Roman Reigns on TV. On this week’s edition of Raw. Roman Reigns told Shawn Michaels the following:“With all due respect, The Undertaker retired you (Shawn Michaels).
And I’m the guy that’s going to retire The Undertaker.”Michaels came out to give Roman advice going into his match against The Undertaker, however, Roman cockily refused the advice and claimed that he would beat The Undertaker without it.Roman was certainly acting in a heel-like way in the segment, leading to further speculation that he may actually be turning heel at WrestleMania 33.
WrestleMania goes down in just over 2 weeks time on Sunday, 2nd April, in Orlando, FL.Some are speculating that Roman Reigns vs The Undertaker could actually close the show if The Undertaker is retiring or if Roman is turning heel or even both. I personally think that the two things have to go hand in hand.
