Undertaker's Retirement & Future; Foley No Longer Getting Paid by WWE

  • WWE is not planning on any sort of statement or official word on Undertaker’s retirement after WrestleMania 33, but as noted, pretty much everyone in the company internally believes he has wrestled his last match.

  • Taker has talked of retiring for many years but always seems to come back for yet another match, which is likely why WWE isn’t interested in formally stating anything.

  • If Undertaker is indeed retired, he’s obviously going to be one of the strong candidates to lead the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame class.

  • Mick Foley is scheduled to undergo hip replacement surgery later this month and has officially been taken off of WWE’s payroll effective this week. The word we get is that he is not expected back on WWE TV as a recurring character even when he is recovered, but WWE would be open to using him in one-off appearances.
