The Undertaker brought the curtains down, giving his farewell on a highly decorated 30-year-long career at WWE’s Survivor Series on Sunday. Having made his debut in the 1990’s Survivor Series, The Undertaker walked to the ring for the last time, with several of his WWE colleagues came out to pay tribute to the legendary wrestler.
“For 30 long years, I’ve made that slow walk to this ring and have laid people to rest time and time again. And now my time has come. My time has come to let The Undertaker rest in peace,” The Undertaker said at the ThunderDome.
Although he has announced his retirement in June, the farewell in Survivor Series – let everyone know – he does not want to take part in another match.
Following Roman Reigns’ match against Drew McIntyre at Survivor Series, a parade of WWE legends came out to the ring to celebrate The Undertaker’s career.
Shane McMahon, The Big Show, JBL, Jeff Hardy, Mick Foley, The Godfather, The Godwins, Savio Vega, Rikishi, Kevin Nash, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Triple H, and Kane all stepped out to the ring, before a video montage played, celebrating his career.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon also paid tribute to The Undertaker, before bringing him out to the ring.
The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark Calway, made his entrance and gave a small speech, before tipping his hat and striking his signature pose, with a hologram of Paul Bearer appearing in front of him.
Later, he lowered his head as his signature gong sounded. The Undertaker rose as the lights brightened, did his throat-slashing gesture, and walked back up the ramp.
