After his loss to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33, ending the show by leaving his hat and gloves in the center of the ring, it seemed as if The Undertaker was going to retire for good. Of course, he ended up sticking around for a few more years after that, but at the time, it felt like The Deadman’s 27-year WWE career was finally, well, dead.
I wanted to see if I could do something in the retrowave style, but with a subject matter that wasn’t necessarily sci-fi or 80s-themed. And a tribute to one of the cornerstones of pro wrestling for three decades was something that piqued my interest.
There’s some cool stuff in this, and a few things that, looking at it almost five years later, I see could stand some improvement. But it’s still a good concept.
