WWE icon The Undertaker retires from wrestling
Long-time WWE stalwart The Undertaker has called an end to his 30-year career, making the announcement during the final episode of WWE Network documentary The Last Ride.
As far as retirement announcements go, The Undertaker's came with a deft storytelling touch that WWE has long-since mastered. In Chapter 5 of the behind-the-scenes documentary of the professional wrestler Mark Calaway, the 55-year-old dropped the bombshell revealing that he had no intention of stepping back inside of a WWE ring, effectively retiring from professional wrestling.
"I'm at a point, it's time this cowboy really rides away. There's nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish," he said in the documentary. "It [the documentary] has helped me opened my eyes to the bigger picture and not judge myself as harshly these last few years. I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I'm finally at a place where I can accept that."
The Undertaker has been performing the ring for more than three decades, having made his WWE debut in November 1990 at Survivor Series, going on to become arguably most iconic character in wrestling history.
During his run, he won every championship and event possible while also having an incredible winning streak at Wrestlemania that only recently came to an end.
