The Undertaker won't be competing in any WWE matches in the foreseeable future. In the series finale of Undertaker: The Last Ride, The Undertaker announced his retirement, saying he will no longer step in a ring for a match. The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark Calaway, took on A.J. Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard Match back in April. He hasn't been on WWE TV since other than The Last Ride episodes and appearances on talk shows.
"I believe I'm at a place now post-Boneyard, it's like I just won a hellacious battle against one of the best in the business," Calaway said on The Last Ride. "Here you are climbing on your motorcycle and taking off. There was a lot of thought and a lot of emotion that went through my head. One of those being, are you happy enough with that? It was just a powerful moment, and you don't always necessarily get those."
Calaway, 55, has competed in WWE for 30 years. He's a seven-time world champion and a six-time tag team champion. He's seen and done everything in pro wrestling, but that doesn't mean fans won't miss him. Here's a look at fans reacting to Calaway's announcement.
