WWE Pays Tribute To The Undertaker With Amazing Highlight Video After Announcing He’s Officially Retired

by 2 weeks ago

The Undertaker has officially retired from in-ring competition.

In the final episode of The Last Ride docuseries on the WWE Network, Undertaker said, “Never say never, but … at this point in my life, and in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.”

The WWE took this statement seriously – or just needed the ratings boost for this week amid Covid-19 issues – and dedicated Friday’s episode of Smackdown to the wrestling legend.

Several video packages – including the one above – and segments with stars discussing the Undertaker’s career were aired throughout the two-hour show, including current WWE stars paying homage to Taker’s legacy and 30+ year career.

The Undertaker *might* be done performing in the ring but the 55-year-old future Hall of Famer signed a 15-year contract with the WWE last year.

“That extended contract is obviously not a contract that keeps me in the ring for 15 years,” Undertaker told Sports Illustrated. “It keeps the brand at home, and there are a lot of ways that Vince thinks I can contribute to the company after my days in the ring are done.”

The Undertaker will be 70-years-old when his current WWE contract expires.
