Sources close to the Undertaker reveal that the professional wrestler is ashamed to show his face in public after a poor showing at WrestleMania that capped off an underwhelming career in the squared circle.
“That loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania was a real heartbreaker for him,” said one acquaintance in Death Valley, who spoke to Kayfabe News on condition of anonymity.
“It would have been nice for him to finally have just one victorious moment in the spotlight.”
Alas, it was not meant to be, as the Undertaker lost his only singles match this year — a record trumped by even Zack Ryder.
Growing up in his parents’ funeral home, the Undertaker dreamed of becoming a top star of professional wrestling — a dream that he now, in retrospect, realizes was unrealistic.
He never held the WWE Intercontinental Championship, nor wrestled a single match in wrestling’s big leagues, Total Non-Stop Action (TNA) Wrestling.
In recent years, the Undertaker almost never appeared on WWE television, having been repeatedly told by WWE brass that “creative has nothing for you.”
The Undertaker reportedly feels overshadowed by the success of his little brother, a former dentist who ascended to a position of corporate power while dabbling in pyromania and necrophilia.
