‘The Last Ride’: Undertaker retires from WWE
MANILA, Philippines — Mark Calaway, better known as The Undertaker, has retired from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
Calaway, who began his professional wrestling career in 1987 and made his WWE debut three years later, announced his retirement Monday (Manila time) in the final episode of “The Last Ride” documentary on WWE Network.
“You can never appreciate how long the road was until you’ve driven to the end,” Calaway tweeted.

The 55-year-old Calaway, though, left the door open for a possible return.
“If Vince [McMahon] was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell, there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out the Undertaker, I would have to consider that. Never say never, but at this point in my life and my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring. … I’ve got a pit in my stomach right now.”
“This time, the cowboy really rides away.”
He last faced AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a “Boneyard Match” three months ago.
