The Undertaker said goodbye to the WWE Universe in a way only The Phenom could at Survivor Series.
But first, many of The Deadman’s greatest friends and rivals throughout his illustrious career in sports-entertainment made special appearances. Shane McMahon,Big Show, JBL, Jeff Hardy, Mick Foley, The Godfather, The Godwinns, Savio Vega, Rikishi, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Kane entered WWE ThunderDome to show adulation to Undertaker, followed by Mr. McMahon sharing a warm homage to one of the most legendary Superstars in WWE history.
And so the stage was set for The Deadman himself to take the ring and address the WWE Universe. Recognizing the many souls he laid to rest over three decades of destruction, Undertaker said the time for him to rest in peace had finally come as well.
With no fans to bid him farewell and a microphone in hand, Undertaker declares “my time has come to let the Undertaker Rest in peace”.
Here is how the world reacted:

Congratulations to @Undertaker on a remarkable 30-year wrestling career with @WWE. Here’s a rendition of the original in-ring introduction I did at 1990 Survivor Series, the night Undertaker debuted in the WWE, as my mystery partner. Spoiler alert??

My favorite of all time. In my opinion the GOAT. Part of me is heartbroken he’s calling it, but the other part of me is relieved he won’t have to risk injuring himself anymore. He had the match he’s happy with and because of that I’m happy #ThankYouTaker #SurvivorSeries pic.twitter.com/JvW6vnJYEa
