The Undertaker Thought He'd Have "More Gas In The Tank" After Match With AJ Styles

The Undertaker did not think he would be retiring at WrestleMania 36 after his match with AJ Styles

At WrestleMania 36, The Undertaker competed in his last ever match as he defeated AJ Styles in a cinematic Boneyard Match, before riding off into the sunset and retiring. This wasn’t billed as a retirement bout nor did he close the book on his career officially, but with it now being four years down the line he is certainly now retired.

At the time, The Undertaker did not think this way, and heading into WrestleMania 36 he believed that he would end up wrestling more again in the future. Speaking on a Q&A on Patreon, he revealed that he thought he’d have more gas in the tank. 

"I wasn't thinking ahead. The only thing I was thinking was, 'There may be more gas in the tank for some other opponents,' but I didn't have anybody in mind. I was completely focused on AJ and the shape that I thought I was going to have to be in to have the match that I wanted to have with him, which would have been initially in a wrestling ring. So I mean, my whole focus was on that."

He admitted that after the Boneyard Match, he realised that he did not have much left to give in the ring. Undertaker spoke recently about AJ Styles, billing him as the modern day Shawn Michaels.
