The Undertaker Reportedly Signs Very Lengthy Contract To Remain With WWE

How long, exactly?

The tag team match at Extreme Rules that pitted he and Roman Reigns against Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon doesn't appear to be the final bout of Undertaker's three decades-plus wrestling career.

A casual note in this week's Wrestling Observer says that, "The new deal Undertaker signed (with WWE), while not exactly a lifetime contract, is so long that for all intents and purposes it is."

The terms of the contract have not been made public, but at 54 years old, one assumes that Undertaker would likely still wrestle the odd big match or two per year for as long as he possibly can, before retiring in what amounts to an ambassador's/legend's deal, where he would still be contractually bound to WWE.

Certainly, it keeps him from taking non-WWE bookings, like when he initially agreed to appear at Starrcast II back in May, only to wind up pulling out of the convention. Back in February, Undertaker removed all WWE mentions from his Twitter bio, and, at the time, began fielding outside booking inquiries.
