At WrestleMania 32, The Undertaker put away Shane McMahon in Hell in a Cell. Shane O Mac was meant to disappear, but while he’s stayed on as SmackDown boss, it’s the Dead Man who’s been conspicuous by his absence.
He pulled out of the post-Mania UK tour late in the day, and there’s been swirling rumours that we may have seen the last of Taker in a WWE ring.
But one of the longest-serving WWE veterans Big Show thinks that The Undertaker will return before too long – and has urged fans to go and see him while they still have the chance.

Big Show: ‘I’ll block idiots with bad WWE opinions’
“No, I don’t think Taker’s story is done,” Show told Digital Spy ahead of the recent WWE Live in London show.
“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.
“My personal take on it? I wish Taker would have never lost in New Orleans [to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX]. There was no reason for it.
“I get it. Anyone can lose, anything can happen in our business, it’s entertainment, nothing lasts forever, I understand all that.”
He continued: “I think the fans are happy to see Undertaker once a year and make that entrance and go out there and keep going.
“Taker’s always been a businessman too. He’s never been ego-driven like a lot of guys are. He goes out there and gets the match over, gets his opponent over and gets himself over.”
The Undertaker – The Streak
Show added: “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.
“That entrance is probably the greatest entrance ever. I’ve been in the ring competing with him and that GONNNG would hit, and the music, and I’ve gotten chill bumps.
“I’ve looked at Mike Chioda , the referee, a few times and both of us are like ‘Ah we’ve got goosebumps!’
“So I’m still a fan too. Nothing lasts forever. Taker’s not going to last forever, I’m not going to last forever, Kane’s not going to last forever.
“It’s a changing of the guard but I think any time the fans get a chance to see Undertaker it’s very special and they should definitely seize the opportunity.”
