WWE Legend The Undertaker Has Announced His Retirement

WWE Legend The Undertaker Has Announced His Retirement

WWE legend The Undertaker has called time on his glittering career and admitted he has 'no desire' to return to the ring.

The 55-year-old, real name Mark Calaway, last stepped into the ring at WrestleMania 36 when he beat AJ Styles in the first Boneyard Match.

The Deadman announced the big news during the final episode of the critically-acclaimed Last Ride documentary series.

He said: "I believe I'm at a place now, post-Boneyard, which was a hellacious battle against one of the best in the business. Here you are, climbing on your motorcycle and taking off.

"There was a lot of thought and a lot of emotion, one of those being, 'Are you happy enough with that?' It was a powerful moment. You don't necessarily always get those. If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it."

While he said he has 'no desire' to return, he did leave the door open to making a comeback if WWE chairman Vince McMahon needed him.

He continued: "If Vince was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time would only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would consider it.

"[But] at this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring."

The Texas native then went on to liken himself to a cowboy, riding away at the right moment.

He continued: "I'm at a point, it's time this 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. 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 made his WWE debut during the Survivor Series 1990 when he appeared as a mystery member of Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Team.

He won a slew of championships as well as forging a legendary WrestleMania streak, which stood at 21-0, before losing to Brock Lesnar in 2014.
