After an epic 30-year career with WWE, the legendary Undertaker has hung up his hat for the last time … at the same event where he debuted.
After the main event of Sunday night’s Survivor Series, the Undertaker — who made his WWE at the 1990 Survivor Series — was honored by some of his closest friends and former colleagues.
Shane McMahon, Big Show, JBL, Jeff Hardy, Mick Foley, The Godfather, The Godwinns, Savio Vega, Rikishi, Kevin Nash, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Triple H, and Kane all made their way to the ring to pay homage to the Deadman before an emotional video package consisting of some of the most memorable moments of his career aired. The video also featured messages from Batista and John Cena, who were unable to attend the event in-person.
Following the highlight reel, WWE CEO Vince McMahon said a few words and reflected on Undertaker’s historic 30 years in WWE.
Vince then introduced the Phenom himself, who made his way to the ring in typical ‘Taker fashion.
Undertaker — who was briefly joined in the ring by a hologram of his former manager Paul Bearer — gave an emotional speech, and said goodbye to the WWE Universe.
“My time has come to let The Undertaker rest … in … peace,” he said.
The sun has finally set on Death Valley, and we here at Pro Wrestling Sheet couldn’t be more grateful for all the memories.
Thank you, ‘Taker.
