The Retirement of the Undertaker

The history of WWE can never be written without giving due notice of the amazing career of the legendary Undertaker. Preforming in the WWE for over 25 years, his 21 match winning streak at WrestleMania will never be forgotten, considering in that span he held victories over superstars like Shawn Michaels, Randy Orton, Batista, Triple H, CM Punk and others. His impact on the WWE universe cannot be ignored. At the end,  even superstars like Triple H, Ric Flair and Vince McMahon among others extended their thanks to the legend Twitter and social media for his contributions to the success of WWE.

While the retirement of The Undertaker may not be official, it appeared to be clear that we saw the last appearance of The Deadman in the wrestling ring at WrestleMania 33, with nothing left to prove, he left his hat and coat in the center of the ring.

It could be argued that the Dead Man’s retirement should have followed, after a disappointing loss Brock Lesner, but he bounced back and answered the challenge from Bray Wyatt, defeating him at WrestleMania 31 and followed that up with an impressive win over Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32.
In retrospect.

In his last match, a No Holds Barred match, the 52 years old Phenom failed to display the great athleticism that he had always demonstrated throughout his career. For the fans, it was hard for many of them to digest that he was going to suffer a defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns and then after three spears to the heart of the big man, it was over, an era had ended as they all due, but it is the legend of the Undertaker, that will soon not be forgotten.
