Recently, the WWE Hall of Famer reflected on that cinematic match, which also went on to be referred to as the “Last Ride” of the Deadman. On his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker stated that he always wanted to have a wrestling match with AJ Styles, similar to that he had with Shawn Michaels. However, it would not have been possible at the time of the pandemic, given the condition of Undertaker’s body.

Deep down I always thought AJ was the Shawn Michaels of this generation. I wanted to have that kind of match that I had with Shawn with AJ in a ring, but I don't think it would have been as poetic as what we were able to do.

However, the former World Champion expressed his fulfillment at having such an interesting match to wrap up his career.

The Undertaker has been open about his career and regularly provides interesting stories related to it. Recently, he also revealed his choice for the superstar who should have broken his streak.
