The Undertaker felt boxed in with what he could do with his character, says it was time to put it away

The Undertaker appeared on today’s episode of WWE’s The Bump to discuss his career and being an ambassador for the company.

The former WWE Champion last competed on WWE programming at WrestleMania 36 when he beat AJ Styles in a cinematic Boneyard match. He later announced his retirement.

During the interview, he stated that with him making appearances for the company, he felt like it was time to put away his gimmick. He feels like he’s in the middle of his American Badass character and The Deadman gimmick, which is what he portrayed in his final match.

“It’s different, It’s fun, that Undertaker character, obviously it’s served me really well but it’s also time to put that away and be able to still use the 30 years that I’ve been on WWE TV and still do things like that.”

He brought up being a Dallas Cowboys fan and being at the pre-sale ticket party for WrestleMania 38 next year at AT&T Stadium. He said it was a nice thing to do.

“It was fun to get out there and….as great as the character was and everything that we got to do, you’re I kind of boxed into what I could and couldn’t do, right? So, now that it’s off, this is what’s left.”
