The recent Dean Ambrose vs. The Undertaker match on SmackDown is confirmed to be Taker's last scheduled appearance for the time being. WWE left it open to where Taker could come back and confront The Shield later.This is excellent news for fans of The Deadman.
The Undertaker came out of these recent matches in much better shape than he has in the past few years. Going into WrestleMania 29, Taker rested more, changed his diet and tried new workout routines.
Taker also worked a smarter match with CM Punk. It's said that he had the mindset of his matches with Triple H were going to be some of his last but going into the Punk match, he just wanted to give the fans a good match but not destroy himself.
Over the past several years, Undertaker has only been wrestling once a year at WrestleMania. While this has created an even bigger mystic around the Phenom, and made his matches more of a must-see, it has also created the impression he was on his last leg as a performer.
