If you are a fan of the wrestling industry than you were one of the millions that saw on April 2,2017 as the Undertaker fought his finalbattle and lost to Roman Reigns.
There were a lot of mixed emotions as the Undertaker passed the torch to the young wrestler as cocky as he is. But what many of us as on lookers do not realize is there are many underlying reasons that the Undertaker left during the main event Wrestlemainia 33.
A Career Like None Other
The Undertaker has been in the wrestling business now for 30 years. With WrestleMainia 33 under his belt he would be the longest running competitor in the sport to date. Mark Calloway has always had a way to make his matches stand out like no other. For instance, the Hell in the Cell match with Mankind both he and Mankind promised that it was going to be a bloody match and it was. For as long as the Undertaker has been in the wrestling industry he has been using ability to scare not only the audiences but his opponents alike.
No matter if he was the Phenom, The Deadman, The Undertaker, Texas Red or The Phantom he has always had a way to use the scare tactic in everything that he has done over the years and that is how he has evolved however now not many really know why he is really leaving the wrestling scene especially now.
The Real Reason Undertaker Retired From WWE
For years as the Undertaker has taken quite a beating from several opponents including
· Mankind – Hell in the Cell
· Triple H – WrestleMainia XXVVII
Due to the several injuries that he has sustained over the years because of the high-risk maneuver’s that he did in the ring such as the “old school” as he walked across the ropes. Or the Tombstone piledriver that so many of his opponents have seen time and time again. But sadly, as all of us know over time as we all do something that we love over time we tend to get old and fall apart and while the Undertaker is in no means falling apart the business itself is taking its toll on him and it is because off moves like the “Spear” and the “F5” That he had to retire and had to have a double hip replacement. And for that the Undertaker should get a standing ovation. You are the Man You will always be the man Rest in Peace and We hope to see you some time. “Not wrestling of course.” Not to mention his wife Michelle and kids would love to have him home for a while as a stay at home dad now. Enjoy your time together as a family!
As shocking as it may seem Undertaker did finally retire from his long reign as the Phenom from the WWE. But there is a lot of people that are now asking why. Why now? And Why with Roman Reigns? Undertakers career is quite extensive. Starting out in 1984 when he first was introduced in the industry to today when it does not seem like you can even mention the WWE without mentioning the Undertaker. Mark Calloway (Undertaker) has been in the wrestling industry for over 30 years that is a feat that not many have seen or let alone done.
What Made Him So Unique?
Superstars and the audiences alike have often wondered what it was about the Undertaker that made him so different from the rest of the wrestlers over time as the wrestling industry changed. Some wonder if it is being how he played from people and their fears as he would use the morbid scare tactics of the tombstones and the fear of being buried alive. Or was it the fact that over time he seemed to change with the time. Making his moves better in the ring, making them deadlier? In fact, it is proven that over time there were 5 matches that were made specifically for the Undertaker.
· Hell in the Cell
· Casket Match
· Inferno Match
· Buried Alive Match
· Last Ride Match
A Very Unhappy Audience Speaks
Since WrestleMainia 33 on April 2, 2017 the audiences and wrestling nation everywhere has let their voices be heard on how they are not happy on how they just let Roman Reigns just take over where Undertaker left off. For a lot of people, they feel like the Undertaker was wronged in the way that they just let him go. A lot of the wrestling audiences feel that Reigns was just handed the Takers spot if you will in the industry and it does not feel right. But either way get feeling better Undertaker now you can Rest In Peace with your children and family.
Brock Lesnar has become the talk of the sports circle since he and Golberg announced that they would be fighting against each other when they face one another at Wrestlemainia 33 on April 2,2017. However; through his proven track record over the past year there is a lot of discussion on whether he should be allowed to even participate in the event.
Brock Lesnar ended up failing several drug tests within the year. The shocking part is that they were not only in the UFC, but it also happened in the WWE as well. However; while all of this was going on the only thing that the UFC made him do was pay a fine after testing positive for steroids in his body in during his fight against Mark Hunt.
But when he was suspended from the UFC for the year, he ended up transferring over to the WWE where his signature move the F-5 has done a lot of damage to a lot of the WWE roster. Believe it or not there have been 6 Pro Wrestlers that have been seriously injured due to his F-5. The wrestlers that have suffered severe injuries due to this move are:
- Shawn Michaels- who while it seems minor suffered a nosebleed.
- ·Roman Reigns – was knocked for a loop and then he was stiff-arm close line which if not careful because Reigns was hit right by the ear could have done some serious damage, that would not of been noticeable right away in the ring.
- 2014 The Big Show- While the show is a majority scripted there are times that things get out of hand. During Show’s match with Lesnar he sustained several chairshots and then Lesnar took one last shot to Show’s elbow causing a loud pop and Show screaming and cursing.
- Kurt Angle – In 2003 when Kurt Angle returned from a neck injury both wrestlers admitted that the match seemed to be too real. Over the course of the match Lesnar cause more neck injured for Angle.
- John Cena – Who during Extreme Rules ended up receiving multiple blows to the head.
- · “Hardcore” Holly- Who has suffered several injuries from Lesnar. Holly’s injuries consist of the head and neck area.
And now, with Wrestlemainia 33, less than 2 weeks away and Paul Haman being as loud as obnoxious as ever there is a lot of talk from other sport sponsors that they do not want Lesnar in any of the events. In fact there is even talk that Brock Lesnar should face jail time, for the constant use of steroids, as well as the damage that he tends to cause with the people he faces in the in ring as steroids do tend to make your moods more aggressive and mean .
