WWE has a poll up on their website asking fans if they think that Roman Reigns will retire The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
The poll choices are:
Yes. The Big Dog will end The Phenom’s in-ring career.
No. Reigns may win the match, but it won’t be the end of The Deadman’s career.
No. Not only will Reigns not end The Undertaker’s career, he won’t win the match.
As of this writing, the third option is leading with over 52% of the votes. Last week, Reigns promised to retire Taker at Mania. WWE has not set a stipulation for this match and if they do add a retirement stipulation then that could be a sign that Taker is ready to hang up his boots.
Following last year’s WrestleMania, Taker told people backstage that he was done but he later changed his mind. He’s been teasing retirement for years because of his back, knee and hip issues. In fact, as far back as the late 90’s, there was backstage talk of Taker retiring. The reason why Vince McMahon made the call to end the streak at WrestleMania 30 was because McMahon thought that Taker’s match with Brock Lesnar would be his last.
