WWE’s The Undertaker announces his retirement

21 June 2020
WWE legend The Undertaker has announced his retirement, saying that he has “no desire to return to the ring”.

During the final episode of his documentary, The Last Ride, The Undertaker who is 55 years old revealed that he will not continue on as a professional wrestler.

He said that he would return “in an emergency” and if boss Vince McMahon was “in a pinch,” but he called his final ride the “perfect ending.”

The Undertaker said, “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 but at this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.”

The Undertaker went on to say that he has “nothing left to accomplish” after a lengthy and successful career spanning across three decades.

“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, “I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I’m finally at a place where I can accept that.”
