The Undertaker is in his mid 40’s now and has not wrestled consistently for several years.
This is an effort by WWE to help maintain, arguably, WWE’s biggest money draw.
Eventually “The Deadman” will be proven to be human sooner rather than later.
But how will he bow out?
Personally, I cannot imagine Wrestling without The Undertaker’s presence as he has proven time and time again that he will not go away. This is further amplified by his Wrestlemania winning streak, 18-0.
This slideshow shows several ideas and angles for which The Undertaker may leave the company in a believable way.
The words "sooner rather than later" have never rang so loud.
The recent Rivalry between "The Brothers Of Destruction" has been rumoured to be Kane's last hurrah with WWE as talks of retirement for the "Big Red Machine" have begun to surface on the web in the wake of Kane's sudden involvement in storylines and his 2nd World title reign.
Kane has never beaten his brother, The Undertaker. Will this finally be Kane's time?
Survivor Series, The Undertaker's second most successful PPV behind a distant 1st in Wrestlemania, is near the horizon. This rivalry has the potential to reach that far and have an almighty showdown where Kane finally defeats his brother in decisive fashion.
Buried Alive Match maybe?
The Undertaker has a history of surviving this particular match up. Win, Lose of Draw and Kane would know this fact all to well.
Will the match feature a brutal end for The Deadman?
Triple H, WWE's favourite son, literally, defeats The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 27 and ends the career of The Phenom in the exact same way The Undertaker retired Shawn Michaels.
Unoriginal this may seem, but it may become likely
Triple H, being married to the daughter of "The Boss" who just so happens to also be in the WWE Creative Team maybe be seen as the best man for the job to end the career of "The Demon Of Death Valley".
Hopefully there are restrictions against this sort of thing....
This seems like a long shot but then again so was every scene in Baywatch.
Ted Dibiase first introduced The Undertaker at Survivor Series in 1990 and 20 years later, Ted Dibiase cannot take it anymore.
Taker has made so much money that "The Million Dollar Man" believes Taker has wasted all of it as The Undertaker's characterised social life is believed to be non existent.
Dibiase Senior sends his son in to do the dirty work and reclaim what his Father believes was originally his in the first place.
Dibiase financially bankrupts The Undertaker
This leads to the Dibiase's threatening to tell the WWE audience of how they found The Undertaker in the first place to which it reveals "The Truth" about Taker.
However, this storyline is used only to introduce the man who ultimately ends Taker's career....
The Undertaker had been spending his money over his career for one thing and one thing only.
To keep his son alive!
20 years ago, The Undertaker has a son, which has been striken by a bolt of lightening at birth, nearly killing the child.
Mini Taker has been kept alive only because his Father got a job with the WWE (WWF at the time) by striking a deal with "The Million Dollar Man".
Everybody has a price.
Every paycheck The Undertaker recieves is given to his son's medical bills.
The Undertaker also reveals that he was "chosen" to be "The Undertaker" as he would be given immortal powers in order to help save his son.
His son finally wakes up from his lifelong coma near the end of The Dibiase Snr/Jr Vs Taker feud and attacks his father after Taker defeats the Dibiase's. The two Ted's then take responsibilty for "The Son of The Undertaker" saying they bought him out.
This leads up to a match at Wrestlemania 27 where The Undertaker is scheldueled to face his son.
The Undertaker's son attacks the Dibiase's The next night on Raw proving the Dibiase's never bought him out.
The Undertaker calls out to his son repeatedly while recieving no answer from his offspring.
At Wrestlemania 27, The Undertaker's son defeats his Father.
Afterwards, a casket is brought to the ring by druids. The Undertaker's son finally proclaims his first words
"It is time Father.."
The Undertaker is carried into the casket by the druids and The Undertaker's son becomes "The New Phenom" and does his Father's infamous pose as a way of respect for his fallen father.
Brother Love returns after The Undertaker has won his eighth World Title at Wrestlemania and simply says "it is time to go Mark".
The Undertaker starts to cry and thanks the fans.
The lights go out.
The Undertaker disappears.
John Cena, The 21st Century Hulk Hogan, takes a heel turn and calls himself "a legend" gaining great heat from the crowd.
The Undertaker then comes out and challenges Cena for the title at Wrestlemania 27.
Cena, believing he can become a legend in the process, accepts and defeats Taker at Wrestlemania.
Hopefully, this will not happen.
I am just starting to run out of ideas.
Goldberg returns at Elimination Chamber 2011 and spears The Undertaker in the main event in Shawn Michaels like fashion.
However The Undertaker kicks out and wins the World Title.
A match is set up for Wrestlemania 27 and Goldberg wins the title and retires with it.
The Undertaker is never seen again.
expect this to happen, just not involving The Undertaker.
The next slide may prove to be the most dignified exit for The Undertaker...
The Undertaker defeats the biggest star of WWE, John Cena at Wrestlemania 28, the night after being inducted into the Hall Of Fame.
Just like Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels before him, The Undertaker goes out with Class in a classic Wrestlemania moment.
This is my pic for what will actually happen to The Undertaker.
That is all from me folks.
This was a hard subject for me as i am a die hard Taker fan but hey, it does not mean i have to be in denial.
please express your views and any other ideas for how The Undertaker can hang up his boots.
