After 30 long years of entertainment, finally, The Undertaker has announced his retirement from the WWE. In the final episode of WWE’s documentary, “The Last Ride”, The Undertaker has announced his retirement. He is now 55 years old, and his real name is Mark Calaway. The Undertaker wrestled his last match at Wrestlemania 36. It was the Boneyard Match against AJ Styles, in which The Undertaker came out victorious. Audiences liked the boneyard match and called it the match of the Wrestlemania 36. The story building, the music, the cinematic, everything was flawless and outstanding.
On the retirement, The Undertaker told,
“I’m at a point where it’s time the cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish. The game has changed. It’s time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right. This documentary has helped me discover that and opened my eyes to the bigger picture and not judge myself as harshly these last few years.”
The Undertaker continued,
“If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it. If [WWE Chairman] Vince [McMahon] was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would have to consider that. Never say never, but at this point in my life and in my career I have no desire to get back in the ring.”
The hashtag #ThankYouTaker started trending on Twitter, and fans shared their favorite moments of The Deadman’s 30 years long career. AJ Styles who got the privilege to fight him in his last match wrote,
Still floored by the experience and reaction to the #BoneyardMatch at #WrestleMania.
If it was the last time @undertaker laced up his boots, I’m honored it was against me. #TheLastRide https://t.co/qzofoKEn2Q

The first wrestling match I ever saw was The Undertaker vs Mankind in a Boiler Room Match. I was 6 years old & watched his career ever since.
