The Undertaker devoted himself to entertaining fans through his performances, often at the cost of his own physical well-being. As a result, he has become a legendary figure, renowned for his many accomplishments. His impact on the world of professional wrestling is unrivaled, and his influence can be felt in many different ways. That being said, it seems he will never wear his iconic attire ever again.
The Deadman was a fixture of WWE television for over thirty years, and he continued to be a highlight of WWE television since the early 90s. He finally retired at Survivor Series 2020 and even got inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame last year.
Wrestling fans’ last sighting of The Undertaker was at WWE Raw XXX, where his iconic gong sound filled the arena while LA Knight was in the ring. Fans were eagerly anticipating his entrance, but instead, Kid Rock’s American Bad Ass theme began to play, and The Undertaker made his way to the ring on a motorcycle, paying homage to his 2001 persona.
While speaking with Ariel Helwani, The Undertaker has revealed that those involved with the segment expected him to come out with his more traditional character. However, The Deadman made it clear he will never wear his iconic attire ever again.
When asked if he would bring back the hat and coat in the future, The Undertaker firmly stated that he would not, no matter what.
“They had a different vision. They didn’t even know that I wasn’t going to have the hat and coat. They totally thought I was coming [out as] old Undertaker. I was like, no. That’s part of me and the storytelling, right? When I lifted the curtain, and when I lifted it back and pulled it back, that’s gone. It’s gone now.
I won’t bring the hat and coat back out, no.”
The Undertaker also explained that he feels that his character cannot be portrayed in the same way anymore because of his public speaking engagements and frequent interviews. In addition, The Undertaker has opened up about what he said to Bray Wyatt at WWE Raw XXX and why he believes that it is not fair for fans to compare Wyatt’s character to his own.
