Many thought Undertaker had retired after losing to Reigns when he placed his signature black jacket, gloves and hat in the middle of the ring before saluting the crowd.

However, Taker is not done yet as he returned for another WrestleMania clash against John Cena this year and also competed against Rusev at the Greatest Royal Rumble – he won on both occasions.

Rumours suggest the seven-time world champion will have more matches this year. 

Reigns jokingly described The Deadman as a “son of a gun” when asked by Express Sport if he would consider sharing the ring with the WWE legend again.

He said: “I’d love to. That’s how you truly learn. You wrestle a lot of different people a lot of times. That’s the hard part.

“I told Rusev congrats after that (Greatest Royal Rumble) match. You’re in the ring with The Deadman, there’s not a lot of guys in our generation that can say it. So it’s an actual honour and a privilege to share the ring with him.

“And if you can, you have to be like a sponge and try to absorb everything that you learn in the ring with him because whether you get 15 minutes, 20 minutes or 30 minutes with him it’s not as much as it used to be.

“And because he does a part-time role, it’s obviously a major role when he does come back, we don’t take much time to pick his brains and to watch him work so any time you get that opportunity you have to seize it, you have to jump on it and make the most of it.”

Reigns also stated that he has taken feedback and advice from Undertaker but didn’t wish to reveal any details.

The three-time world champion however insists he is very grateful for the help he has received from The Phenom and other WWE legends.

He added: “I don’t like to talk too much about what me and The Deadman talk about.

“He’s still one of those characters – one of those guys in the locker room who has a lot of mystique.

“But he’s seen my body of work before we had our match and he’s seen what’s happened post that match – and I think I’ve done a good job of using everything I was able to take from him within that main event at WrestleMania. The next night speaks for itself. What happened on Monday Night RAW.

“He’s one of those guys who is pretty much labelled as the Godfather of this business. He understands what’s going on. He understands the business and the shift we’re on.

“It’s a whole different tempo and a whole different ball game than it used to be. It’s a whole different set up and luckily enough we have legends and veterans that give back and are willing to do that and I’m very grateful for that.”

Reigns looks set to take on Jinder Mahal at Money in the Bank on June 17 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
