Undertaker (real name Mark Calaway) still wrestles part time for Vince McMahon’s company despite the advanced age of 53 and has had some big matches against top superstars like Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, John Cena and more.
Many fans have been wondering when his career will come to an end and Goldberg insists that only The Phenom, and probably WWE Chairman and CEO McMahon, can make that decision.
The WWE Hall of Famer told Digital Spy when asked about when The Deadman should hang up his boots: “You know, it’s not my decision.
“If you asked him the same question about me, he’d probably say the same thing. At the end of the day, it’s up to the person lacing those boots up, and my opinion is nothing but that. And one person’s opinion doesn’t mean that things are right or wrong.
“I believe that in Mark’s head, Mark knows when to call it quits. He’ll do it when he wants to, and nobody can tell him otherwise, except for Vince, maybe.
“You know, they can sit down and have a man-to-man, and when it gets to the point where the performance isn’t there, or you’re enduring too much pain [where] you have to prepare too many different ways to get into the match, then it’s time to do it.
“But, it’s a really very hard thing to do. And money doesn’t drive it. People think that money drives them, and that has nothing to do with it.
“We’re talking about careers here that need to be made or broken in one or two matches, or one comeback. One of the old-time programs.”
Undertaker hinted at retirement last year at WrestleMania 33 after an emotional loss to Reigns as he broke character and laid down his signature black jacket, gloves and hat in the middle of the ring before saluting the crowd.
However, the seven-time world champion returned at WrestleMania 34 where he destroyed Cena in less than three minutes and also beat Rusev in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia.
Goldberg made a return to wrestling at the age of 50 where he destroyed Lesnar at Survivor Series in his comeback match.
The three-time world champion also competed in the Royal Rumble Match, won the Universal Championship from Kevin Owens at Fastlane, lost the belt to Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 and was then inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame three months ago.
