Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, announced that he had been finished from wrestling during the final season of his docuseries “Undertaker: the very last Ride,” claiming he is content not getting in the ring ever.
The Undertaker, the most prominent personality to ever be produced in pro wrestling collective memory, has confirmed its retirement after having to spend almost 30 years with WWE. Undertaker, Mark Calaway’s real name, confirmed that during the season finale of his docuseries “Undertaker: the very last Ride,” he has been completed with wrestling, saying he was happy not to step back into the ring.
“Never say never, but I’ve no urge to step back into the ring at this stage in my life and my profession. I’m at a point, it’s time for that cowboy to ride away,” he said during the docuseries’ fifth and final episode. “Nothing is left for someone like me to colonize.
There is nothing left to fulfil for me and affected the paradigm. It is a moment new guys arrived. It just seems like the time is perfect. This video, I think, helped me to discover that. It’s also changed my perspective in the broader picture.
The Last Ride docudrama was indeed a rare high point in the real-life character of The Undertaker, as Calaway decided to give fans a good look at his wrestling career’s “last few stages.” If this is the time, Undertaker’s Boneyard match may go away against AJ Styles as the last of his professional life. WWE has reported the retirement of Taker, with the tweet below.
It continues to remain to be included even so whether retirement of the Undertaker sticks. A few times earlier in his career, Calaway teased retirement but was unable to be at tranquillity with his performance this season. “If a career had ended perfectly, that right there was it. Will I return if [WWE Chairman] Vince [McMahon] were in a pinch? I suppose time is just going to tell. In the case of an emergency break the glass, you drag The Undertaker out. I’d have to think about that,’ he said.
Undertaker clarified the storyline heading into his Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36 with AJ Styles, exposing the Amazing One that had reached out to him about a contest.
This had originated from Taker stating that he decided to go there on his way on the Broken Skull Sessions podcast with WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.
WWE had far different expectations for Undertaker and Styles. The pandemic, though, changed the situation, and they needed to figure out a way around a unique match gimmick. Styles tweeted he’d been honoured to be part of the final chapter of The Deadman.
“So floored by the # BoneyardMatch encounter and reaction at # WrestleMania. If it was the last launch of @undertaker’s boots, I’m honoured that it’s against me.
