Undertaker didn’t actually say the word “retire,” even though WWE immediately launched a tribute show and repeatedly called his match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania his final match.
In an interview with BT Sports, as transcribed by 411 Wrestling, Styles said he wants to make things official with a Loser Leaves Town match at SummerSlam.
I want the Undertaker at SummerSlam because he hasn’t come to me and said, ‘I’m done, I’m retired.’
So Styles, with good reason, doesn’t believe the Undertaker is really retired.
Then again, Styles also doesn’t believe the Earth is a sphere, so he’s not exactly the most reliable source of information.
