Undertaker Explains Losing His Confidence After WrestleMania 30

The first chapter of "Undertaker: the Last Ride" is now available on the WWE Network.

The first chapter of “Undertaker: The Last Ride” was released today on the WWE Network. Chapter 1 of the docuseries is titled, “The Greatest Fear” and focusses on Taker wrestling with the idea of his in-ring career coming to an end.

During the documentary, Taker revealed that after suffering a concussion in his match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, he lost his confidence as a performer.

“What I think happened is between getting older and then not having all the reps and taking all the bumps through the course of the year, eventually, it caught up with me,” Taker said. “I think that explains what happened in New Orleans, I think that’s why the concussion.”

“I’m not sure when I got concussed… I don’t know how that match happened. I have no recollection of any of that.”

He continued to talk about how the concussion impacted his confidence moving forward.

“It’s one concussion in one match, destroyed my confidence,” he continued. “I don’t even think anybody even knew really.”

Footage from the documentary then moved backstage at WrestleMania 31 before Taker’s match against Bray Wyatt.

“It was Triple H that really spotted it and I’m waiting to go out just riddled with self-doubt. Triple H came to me, ‘hey, remember who the f**k you are.'”

Triple H then gave his thoughts on the same interaction the two shared at WM31.

“I remember that being mind-blowing to me,” Triple said. “Like, this is the f***king Undertaker. It was hard for me to contemplate that he had those doubts.”

Taker continued to say that Triple H’s comments were enough to restore his confidence and get him through his match against Wyatt. From that point on, Taker’s confidence began to come back but he also was subjecting his body to more wear and tear.

“What’s going on is I’m getting my confidence back,” Taker continued. “But what’s also happening is more wear and tear.”

Undertaker Experiences Self Doubt Leading To WrestleMania 33

As things moved to WrestleMania 33 and his match against Roman Reigns, Taker said he began to experience self-doubt again at that year’s Royal Rumble.

“When I got in the Rumble, I knew,” Taker continued. “I was like ‘what have I done?’ You’re about to put your whole legacy on the line and you know you have no business being in that match. That match should be somebody else’s.”

“One of my biggest fears is becoming a parody of myself,” Taker said.

The documentary is the most open look at the Undertaker and his storied career ever produced. It is streaming now on the WWE Network.
