Undertaker Says The Crowd Will Let Him Know When It’s Time To Leave

Undertaker, under his real name Mark Calaway, did an interview with the Houston Chronicle to promote SpurRaffle.com. In it, he’s asked why he continues to wrestle despite his injury history.

“Honestly, I love it, that’s why,” Calaway said. “I’ve got 26 years in the business and all these injuries, but WrestleMania has become so huge, it’s just hard to walk away from it. I want the audience leaving the stadium going ‘Wow!’ It’s a responsibility I have being a top dog in this business. The crowd will let me know when it’s time to leave. They haven’t yet.”

He also hinted at feeling a sense of obligation to work WWE’s biggest pay-per-view of the year.

“If I didn’t perform at WrestleMania, in some strange weird way, I’d feel like I was letting Vince McMahon down.”

Undertaker notes that his down time is spent healing up, spending time with family and working on his “horrible golf game.”

    I honestly don’t think that the fans will ever stop cheering for him. If he could make it to 25-0 or WrestleMania 33, that would be awesome. But of course in the end, he will be the one to make the call when to hang up the boots.

    • TheBigKing1

      That’s the plan…but I’m not sure why some of the IWC idiots just assumed he will wrestle at Wrestlemania 30 then retire right after that. They just hear something and then go with it like its fact…and the crazy thing is that they didn’t hear that from his or Vince’s mouth. That’s a rumor that started in the IWC and they just ran with it like idiots.

      • Chris

        I love when people talk trash about the “IWC” while using the INTERNET to talk about WRESTLING with other people also talking about wrestling… Community – the people with common interests living in a particular area; broadly : the area itself (this means you ARE part of the Internet Wrestling Community)

        • TheBigKing1

          Why do ya’ll idiots keep saying that. Of course I am. We all are. DID I SAY I WASN’T??? NO! So what’s the purpose of bringing it up…IDIOT?

          • Chris

            Yes, clearly I’m an idiot, because I go onto sites and talk trash about a group that I am also in, makes things pretty obvious. Don’t get so offended, it’s alright, you want to come off as holier than thou and failed, we understand.

          • TheBigKing1

            Did I mention the whole IWC in my statement??? No IDIOT! I said those IWC idiots that assume something and run with it. Because you’re getting your panties in a bunch, I’m guessing you were 1 of those IWC idiots that assumed that. Hi IWC idiot! Lol! Clown!

          • Chris

            Nope, just someone of a high enough intellect not to talk trash about people in general because I think I’m better than someone. Then again, I also don’t feel the urge to act like I’m the biggest, baddest man on the planet while sitting behind a computer monitor. It’s alright, no problem. Fetch your cheetos, make sure mom is alright with you sitting up all night on the internet and running up her light bill, and drink your Mountain Dew.

          • TheBigKing1

            OTFLMAOOOO!!!!! You are so funny, but now you are really assuming and proving my point. Who said I was being big and bad, who said I was better than someone just because you don’t like what I said? Any person(whether in the IWC or not) that assumes something and hears something started by the IWC and not from the person they are talking about mouth, is and idiot in my eyes.,,and you are not going to change my mind on that. I see if you guessing if it’s true, but if you saying it like it’s fact and nobody credible said it or hinted at that, then you are stupid. That’s my opinion. Plain and simple!

          • Chris

            So, that means YOU have just implicated yourself as an idiot right? I mean YOU did say right off the bat that “the plan” is for Undertaker to go until at least 25-0, are we to assume that YOU personally know what Undertaker’s plan is for the rest of his career?

          • TheBigKing1

            You don’t know what I KNOW so be quiet.

          • Chris

            I know that you don’t know a thing other than what you are ASSUMING in your own mind. I’d hate to be the bearer of bad news here but I can honestly say that I have a MUCH shorter pipeline to reach the man in question than you could ever hope to have.

          • TheBigKing1

            SMDH! Whatver…Lata Chris.

          • Andrew Ace

            You guys should really sites your time trying to get girls instead of wasting time arguing about this.

          • Chris

            Well, for one I’m married, don’t need another girl, for two I pretty much write for a living so this garbage gives me a chance to practice typing, you know, about like a pro weightlifter warming up at 225, nothing big.

          • Simon Veitch

            Quiet troll, no one else cares

          • Simon Veitch

            You Sir need to be congratulated for your your tolerance in dealing with with this “person”. Personally I would have to him where to go. You’ve made many fantastic points and deserve kudos for your work in the troll hunt.

          • TheBigKing1

            Really?? Really?? I thought I made the best points, but I see I cant win this fight because I’m going up against the majority. Ok. Fine. Ya’ll wanna assume something that ya’ll made up and believe it if ya’ll want to. Go ahead. Have a good night!

          • Loren Goldstein

            Ladies!, you’re both pretty

          • TheBigKing1

            haha Lol

          • Chris

            I believe, the winner by way of submission is ME.

          • TheBigKing1

            Lol.

          • Gary Robert

            The purpose was perfectly stated in his first reply, genius. smh

          • TheBigKing1

            What?

        • Kris Mystery

          Ladies ladies !!!!! That’s no way to act !!!!

  • D-Bag

    I would love to see The Undertaker playing golf. Maybe him and Alice Cooper could start a team (do they do that in golf?)

  • DeeRealz

    Wow The Undertaker still wrestling!

    • TheBigKing1

      Of course

  • Pauluk

    Will be a sad day when he does call it a day on wrestling

    • TheBigKing1

      Yup!

  • Stoney

    It would be a sad day when Taker decides to hang up the wrestling boots.

  • Joseph

    Mark Calaway ( Undertaker ) is the best

  • Andy Williams

    Firstly, It will never be time for The Undertaker to leave, and secondly, GOLF?
