The Deadman has finally “rest in peace”.

The Undertaker (or Mark Callaway in real life) officially retired from professional wresting, putting an end to his three-decade run with WWE.

“My time has come to let The Undertaker rest in peace,” he said.

The iconic “Prince of Darkness” character that everyone knew today made his debut in Survivor Series 1990, where he was inroduced by the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase.

Fittingly enough, it was also in this year’s Survivor Series where The Undertaker took his final bow at WWE ThunderDome in Orlando:

The Undertaker’s storied rivals paid tribute on his curtain call like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Kane.

Other WWE legends like Shane McMahon, Big Show, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jeff Hardy, Mick Foley, The Godfather, The Godwinns, Savio Vega, Rikishi, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, and Booker T also remembered the legendary career of The Undertaker.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon would give his final respect to “The Phenom”.

The 55-year old Callaway wrestled his final match on April against AJ Styles in a Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36.

The Undertaker was a seven-time world champion and became famous for his legendary 21 winning streak at Wrestlemania, before losing it to WWE superstars Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
