Mark Calaway, a wrestler better known as The Undertaker in WWE, has called time on his career, saying he has “nothing left to accomplish”.
The 55-year-old US professional wrestler announced his retirement in the last episode of ‘The Last Ride’, his documentary series after spending nearly 30 years with the WWE.
He has gone on to win every championship and event possible while also having an incredible winning streak at Wrestlemania that only recently came to an end.
“I’m at a point, it’s time this cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish,” he said.
“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.
“I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I’m finally at a place where I can accept that.”
Undertaker, however, is not ruling out his return to the wrestling world “in case of emergency” or if Vince McMahon was “in a pinch”.
“I believe I’m at a place now, post-Boneyard, which was a hellacious battle against one of the best in the business. Here you are, climbing on your motorcycle and taking off,” he added.
“There was a lot of thought and a lot of emotion, one of those being ‘are you happy enough with that?’
“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.”
