The Undertaker has had some of the best feuds in the history of pro wrestling. His legendary career spanned three decades. From Mick Foley to AJ Styles, the stalwart has feuded with the best in the business.

A few days ago, the 57-year-old went to the Circuit of the Americas Track in Austin, Texas. He drove the pace car for NASCAR’S EchoPark Automotive Texas Grand Prix. Before hitting the streets, the soon-to-be Hall of Famer gave a media interview discussing his best feud and more.

The Undertaker was asked about his favorite rivalry. The Undertaker took his time before naming a few wrestlers but his storyline half-brother got the final vote.

“Obviously, a lot of people will think of Mick Foley, which is high up on the list. Obviously Kane, the greatest story ever told in wrestling and I also enjoyed my rivalries with Shawn Michaels and Triple H. You know over the course of a 30 plus year career, you have a lot of interesting storylines and people that you get to compete against but I am going to say probably the battles with Kane.

“I think it was just a storyline that people, whether you were a wrestling fan or you weren’t, you understood just because of sibling rivalries and I think people identified with that, and Kane was always such a physically dominant athlete that he always brought the best out of me. So I’m gonna go with the Brother of Destruction.”

“For me it was my body telling me [On when to retire from wrestling]” – The Undertaker

The Undertaker’s last match in WWE was against “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Taker won in what was a Boneyard Match shot like a film.

The Undertaker was asked about how did he know when the time was right to call curtains on his in-ring wrestling career when the younger generation was coming up. Taker mentioned that it was more about his body telling him when to stop.

“Well for me, it really wasn’t so much… I went through a lot of generations. I was there for a good minute. For me, it was my body telling me.

“You know, I was there for so long and I got to see different eras of new guys come in and those guys always continued to push me and that was good but there it just got to a point where although my mind could see it and I wanted to do it in my heart but my body just couldn’t keep up with the 20 and 30 somethings anymore.

“I’m excited of the evolution of our business as well. The guys, their athleticism, their dedication is amazing. I’m really just proud to be a part of the evolution of the business and I think the future of WWE is in good hands.”
