The Undertaker has been around for almost thirty years and has become a permanent fixture of WWE programming. Wrestlers have come and gone but The Deadman has been around forever. However, given he is now well into his fifties and wrestles only a few times a year, one can only wonder if time is running out for him. Recent speculations indicate that The Deadman plans to retire at Survivor Series 2019.
Let us take a closer look at more details about this and who a potential opponent could be.

For Undertaker, Life Comes Back to a Circle!
First off, let us take a closer look at why Survivor Series is an important event. ‘Taker debuted at Survivor Series 1990 and this will mark his 29th year with the company. Over the years, he has made a point to show up at the event from time to time. Hence it makes perfect sense for him to retire here as well.
It is now being speculated that The Undertaker vs The Fiend will be the event that marks his retirement. This will also lead to The Fiend getting a major ‘rub’ and him being hailed as the next supernatural character in WWE who will fill the void that Undertaker’s departure leaves behind.
