After 30 years, The Undertaker retires at age 55; WWE fans go berserk on Twitter
In the fifth and final episode of the docuseries, Undertaker revealed that he is at peace with what he has achieved and has no desire to enter the ring again
WWE legend The Undertaker has apparently called time on his illustrious WWE career, as per the latest episode on his documentary 'Undertaker: The Last Ride' on Sunday.
During the last episode, Undertaker said that he is fine with not wrestling again and ready to retire from professional wrestling.
In the fifth and final episode of the docuseries, Undertaker said, "If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it. If Vince (McMahon) was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would have to consider that. Never say never, but at this point in my life and in my career I have no desire to get back in the ring."

Undertaker also went on to say that the Last Ride documentary also helped him realise that he has nothing left more to prove and he can retire in peace. "I'm at a point where it's time the cowboy really rides away. There's nothing left for me to conquer. There's nothing left for me to accomplish. The game has changed. It's time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right. I think this documentary has helped me discover that. It's really opened my eyes to the bigger picture," said the Undertaker.
WWE also took to social media site Instagram to pay a tribute to The Undertaker in an emotional post which spoke volumes.
