After putting up an epic display in the Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36, The Undertaker is finally ready to ride off in the unset, confirmed by none other than WWE itself. In a series of tweets, WWE trended #ThankYouTaker and #TheLastRide (one of Taker’s signature finishing moves along with the Choke Slam and the best of all, the Tombestone Pile Driver), with a bunch of amazing pictures that are sure to get even the casual wrestling viewer nostalgic, leave aside diehard fans.
In the fifth chapter of his Last Ride WWE series that was recently launched, The Undertaker opened up about his retirement and 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. 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. At this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.”

“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,” he added.
