Never! The Undertaker is NEVER going to retire from WWE. Recent reports have pointed out that the deadman has signed a ‘Lifetime’ contract with Vince McMahon’s company which means that even after his in-ring competition days are over, he will never ever be able to appear for any other company apart from WWE.
Let us take a closer look at his new contract and see what it means for the company:
When the Undertaker signed a new WWE contract in April of this year it was reportedly viewed as a “lifetime” contract, as it was for presumably 20-30 years.

Why Was The Undertaker Made to Sign a ‘Lifetime’ Contract?
Of late, there were rumors that the deadman might be interested in appearing for signings and meet and greet events with All Elite Wrestling. Reportedly, this is something that led to Vince McMahon being FURIOUS with his longest-tenured wrestler, but the two have now come to terms and The Undertaker now has a job for life!
As long as he’s alive, he’ll be paid a fixed sum by the WWE and he’ll be paid regardless of his in-ring appearance!

Will The Undertaker Wrestle Again?
While the deadman’s character has been given a lifetime contract, it will be interesting to see how long the wrestler can go on in the ring. The Undertaker recently fought Goldberg in a ‘first time ever’ match, which ended up badly for both of them, as the match had several botches.
However, while the deadman fought on Extreme Rules alongside Roman Reigns in a match against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, Goldberg is expected to return to WWE in SummerSlam 2019 to face Dolph Ziggler.
