Dave Meltzer, of the Wrestling Observer, is now reporting that Undertaker will now be going through a few surgical procedures. According to the latest WWE rumors, "The Deadman" wanted his retirement match against John Cena and not Reigns.
The brutal final match, wherein the Undertaker suffered only his second ever defeat at Wrestlemania, saw Reigns leave the legend's record end at 23-2.
After acknowledging the applause from all the fans, he then removed his coat, gloves and his hat and placed them in the middle of the ring - a sign that he has ended his in-ring career.
A win against the Undertaker at the annual pro wrestling gala has regularly been promoted by the company, and embraced by fans, as equal to or more prestigious than winning the world championship.
Not when Reigns pinned Undertaker, but when he got up and put his ring gear in the center of the squared circle, it spelled the end for him. The same exact thing happened before when Lesnar won a match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30. Calaway didn't move well last night at all, which was not lost on the WWE Universe, especially on merciless gripe-fest Twitter.
One of the biggest moments of the night came during the RAW Tag Team Championship match, when one of the WWE's most iconic tag teams, the Hardy Boyz, made their stunning return. The Undertaker started his WWE career 27 years ago, and since then, has been known as one of the most popular superstars in the history of WWE. But there is only one of them who can be called the greatest of them all: The Undertaker. It was just the fourth time that Taker had main evented WrestleMania, and there's no better way to go out than on top. While Taker was able to eliminate Bill Goldberg, 50, from the match, Roman wound up eliminating Taker.
The match with Reigns came up out of nowhere and got zero build up.
"That means it's time for me to hang it up".
Defiantly proclaiming, "This is my yard now", Reigns stormed out of the ring and headed backstage.
