The Undertaker is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame throughout the WrestleMania 38 celebrations, commemorating a famous profession with a bevy of memorable minutes. With any profession that covers years, you're going to have some lows amidst all the highs, and the Undertaker is no different, as the legend has actually had a couple of matches that didn't go the way he hoped. In a new interview with SHAK Wrestling, Undertaker talked about his match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, a match that he reviews with dissatisfaction because of how he views his efficiency in the match.
" I was so dissatisfied in my efficiency with Roman at that 'Mania. I can give you one hundred reasons, 'and my hip was this, and all that.' But I am the one that made the decision to do it," Undertaker said. "So I would rather accept the repercussions of that decision. However it was really rewarding to do something."
Undertaker also spoke of his match against AJ Styles, the Boneyard match that wound up liquidating his profession, and that's a match he couldn't be better with. It eventually acted as a best match to ride off into the sunset after, and he liked how all of it turned out, even if it wasn't a standard in-ring match.
" One, it was special because I had actually constantly wanted to work with AJ," Undertaker stated. "Although the initial plan was to do it in a ring in a more standard way. To be able to share such a distinct match, and go out with a positive, I think it was the best-case scenario for me."
" I don't understand if the match had actually remained in a wrestling ring, although I was in excellent shape, and felt actually great, and motivated. I think everything worked out the way that it should," Undertaker stated. "And I left on an extremely high note, I was personally pleased. That was what I was searching for those last few years. That one match that I could hang my hat on and state, 'I'm done, I'm great, it's time to go home.'".
