Popular wrestler, The Undertaker (Born Mark Calaway) has announced his resignation from wrestling after 30 years of being in the game. After launching his career in 1990, the legend proceeded to dominate the industry with his multiple wins and championships.
On the 10th of May, the 55-year-old wrestler premiered his documentary, ‘The Last Ride’ talking about his journey and highlighting his last days in the ring and on Monday, in the final episode of the documentary.
Undertaker announced that he will no longer be actively wrestling. He said it was time for him to give ways for the new guys in the game. In his words,
“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 also pointed out that he will be more useful outside the ring but made no mention of his next move.
“I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I’m finally at a place where I can accept that.”
He couldn’t have ended his career in a better way as he had a winning streak in the just concluded Wrestlemania against his opponent, AJ Styles.
In the past, The Undertaker took a break that fans read to be his retirement and now we can’t help but wonder if he’ll be back to the ring again. What do you think?
