After a last goodbye' at the Survivor Series on Sunday night, November 22, the Undertaker formally retired from WWE, putting his impressive 30-year career to a fitting end.

Since making his Survivor Series debut in 1990, Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, 55, has been a common family name in the sport.
He has won seven world championships and a WrestleMania 21 match winning streak since his debut.
"For 30 long years, I've made that slow walk to this ring and have laid people to rest time and time again," he said in the WWE ThunderDome with simulated fans watching because of the pandemic from home.
"Now, my time has come. My time has come to let The Undertaker rest in peace."

Amongst others, wrestling stars such as Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Mick Foley, Shane McMahon, Big Show, JBL and Jeff Hardy congratulated Undertaker for a fruitful career.

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon also made a rare public appearance to pay respect to Undertaker.

"Thirty years. Thirty long, arduous years. That's three decades!" he said.

"Three decades this man, not withstand his injuries and hardships he's endured and stricken fear in the hearts of, if not, terror in the hearts of almost everyone he faced here in the ring.

"At the same time he entertained the global audience. Be it WWF or, of course, WWE Universe currently.

"Tonight marks an end of an era. End of an era of a long, storied career. It has to never be duplicated. So tonight, we say, we say goodbye.
