- The Big Show was asked by Digital Spy if Undertaker is finished with WWE. Here’s what he said:

"I don't think Taker's story is done. Taker's one of those amazing, iconic characters that has built WWE and stood by WWE through thick and thin times. He's one of the guys that never jumped ship back in the day. I think as long as Taker feels healthy enough and feels good enough to go out there he will. And I'm okay with seeing Taker on special events, because Taker is the ultimate attraction.”
