A few months ago in January, one of the members of BSK and The Undertaker’s friend ‘The Godfather’ appeared on Boston Wrestling MWF for an interview. He stated he does not believe WWE legend The Undertaker will ever reverse his decision to retire from in-ring competition.

The Godfather said, “I would say never say never but me and when we talk, we never talk about wrestling. If we do talk wrestling back in the olden days, yeah back in the memphis days.”

He added, “He has never said this but he’s told me before, ‘I’m trying to get out but Vince just won’t let me go. When he told me the last time, he goes, ‘I’m done.’ And he’s never told me that, so if he does again, never say never, but I don’t think he will. I think he’s beyond that now.”

When Taker fought at WrestleMania 30 against Brock Lesnar, many thought he would retire after that. However, ‘The Phenom’ is such a big entity that Vince McMahon asked him to think about his decision. The Undertaker is the WWE superstar who brought huge money for WWE and is still bringing a major chunk.
