The Last Ride
The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, said in a recent documentary that he had “nothing left” to prove inside a wrestling ring. Speaking in a WWE biopic titled, ‘The Last Ride,’ The Undertaker hinted that he would be stepping away from wrestling. After spending more than three decades in a wrestling ring, Calaway’s words suggest he’s had his last match, a Boneyard match against AJ Styles at Wrestlemania in April.
Following the Boneyard match, ‘Taker rode off into the night on his motorcycle, and it seems the wrestler views this as a fitting last action. He said, “It’s time this cowboy really rides away.” The Undertaker said he has finally come to terms with the idea that he can do more good outside the ring than inside. It suggests he’s going to become a trainer or a mentor rather than an in-ring performer.
Don’t Count Him Out, Yet
Calaway hasn’t outright retired yet, though, and he did say that he would consider one final match to say goodbye to the world of wrestling. The wrestler may wait until crowds are allowed back in arenas to really say goodbye to The Undertaker character he has lived for almost 30 years. Now it would just be a case of finding the right opponent to give ‘Taker’s final match the attention it would deserve.
The Undertaker is one of the most iconic wrestlers of all time, and his fans have possibly seen him wrestle for the final time. He claims to have “no desire” to return to the ring, so we may never see him in his wrestling gear again.
