During the buildup to the event, several current Superstars paid tribute to the legend in their own way. Some used a blend of ensembles, while others tried to recapture Taker’s essence by using various elements of his character. However, this is not where the celebration ended.

Superstars from the previous generation such as Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, The Godfather, Shawn Michaels, and Savio Vega were present to celebrate ‘The Phenom’s’ legendary career inside the ring. They described their experience with him, along with what it was like to have him backstage.

It’s a great watch for anyone who is a huge fan of the previous generation wrestlers.

The Undertaker might return to WWE soon

The Undertaker may have retired from the ring, but he might still be a part of WWE in 2021.

During an interview, Triple H revealed that there might be a point in the coming future when The Undertaker will be a part of WWE NXT as an official. Now, this will not be the first time he will take on a backstage responsibility.

On certain occasions, he has coached the new talents of WWE at the Performance Centre.

Is AEW planning to bring ‘The Deadman’ to the ring?

Amidst everything that WWE was doing regarding building The Undertaker’s perfect farewell, AEW made quiet moves. In a recent episode, Sting made his AEW debut.

The reason this is worth mentioning is because the entire WWE universe has always wanted to witness a match between The Undertaker and Sting. Even Sting wanted this dream match to become a reality. Unfortunately, WWE was not interested.

Now, AEW gives wrestlers and the audience what they want. Therefore, if Tony Khan and co. can be convincing enough, they might get The Undertaker for a special appearance against Sting.
