From what I can determine, Wrestlemania Texas will NOT be the Undertaker’s final match but the jury is still out on whether it will be Sting’s last one. No, I don’t see them having a match vs each other there either. Plus, I don’t see how WWE gets all the way to April for the Taker vs. Lesnar ‘rubber match’ if that’s in the cards.
In my opinion, no wrestler should ever wrestle in his 50s, especially in the WWE.

Between 47-50 years old, wrestlers should consider retirement. At 50, they should be retired no matter what.

What are your thoughts on all of this? Do you think Taker should continue to wrestle?

Well, it seems like Taker was speaking truth during a brawl with Brock on RAW after Battleground. Someone needs to kill him.

Ideally, Undertaker's last match will be at Survivor Series this year. Retiring on the sliver anniversary of your debut. You can't get much more perfect than that.

He should've retired after Wrestlemania 28. It was the perfect match, the perfect storyline, the perfect number. If he left after that match, his legacy would've been perfect because right now, I won't lie, it is cool to see him but he is a shadow of himself and it's sad

Taker proved at Summerslam he could still go and put on a great match so I'm not in a hurry to see him retire.
A rubber match with Lesnar, a match with Sting, Wyatt and masked Kane would all still be very big draws.

I will never understand why The Undertaker didn't retire at Wm28.

There was no reason for him to continue to wrestle unless WWE wanted The Undertaker vs John Cena at WrestleMania 30 but they never did.

He gassed out a couple of minutes into the match.

His performance was just like The Rock @ the 2013 Royal Rumble. Also, even though Rock wasn't in proper in ring condition, he still looked in shape. Same with Batista when he came back.

Taker looks like a broken down old man.

He really should retire after Wrestlemania 32. He's done all that he can do and rather than people continuing to look intimidated and impressed by a guy who is looking more and more old and decayed with every appearance, he should go out at the biggest Wrestlemania of all time in his home-state of Texas. I love the Undertaker, but I'm over him as far as marking for his appearances nowadays.

That's the thing with Undertaker. There is truth in what he said. He won't stop until he is forced to retire or dead. He is just so dedicated and loves his craft.

Doesn't really matter, he is a broken down old man.

And still put on 10x the match Rock did.

I'm the biggest Taker mark you'll ever meet, but even I think continuing on after 32 would be pushing it. He has nothing left to accomplish and he'll go down as the most respected wrestler of all time from fans and peers alike. Still would have liked to see him retire with the streak though.

This is what I've questioned too tbh. It'll be daft if we have to wait another 7 months for this feud to continue and reach a conclusion, as its obvious there will be that 'rubber match'.

He's probably right, but undertaker has to think that this stadium and wm is the perfect place to retire and he would have been in the wwe for 25 years and in the buissness for 32

As long as he wins his last match am happy with him going either ss or mania, would be absolutely disgusting he if told to put over lesner in his last outing

I wasn't sold on Taker v Lesnar at Summerslam, but the promos and the storytelling - not to mention the match itself - were awesome. Forget about "wasting" a Lesnar match or the Streak... just enjoy two of the greatest continuing a rivalry that has spanned a freaking decade. The Taker heel turn has made his character less stale (to me at least) and shows another side to him.

If he feels he can still go safely - and Summerslam proved he can still outwork 90% of the card in terms of wrestling ability and overall storytelling - then I want to see him. It has to come from him and his family though.

Yeah because a broken down 50 year old should really be beating somebody who despite being 37 (?) is in their prime, a legit badass, and is booked as near invincible. Not sure any Taker fan wants to see him to cheat to win his last match either. At this point, he's not even worthy of competing with Brock let alone beating him.
