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. At this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.

After a long 33 years of wrestling, Mark Calaway AKA 'The Undertaker' is at peace with not wrestling again. In a documentary series 'The Last Ride', which aired its finale on Sunday on the WWE Network, Calaway announced his retirement. The series also highlights his wife, Michelle Calaway. In June 1987 Calaway had his first real match against Bruiser Brody. That time Calaway's stage name was 'Texas Red'.

The Last Ride also presented the opportunity to see throwback footage of vintage Undertaker, building caskets and standing beside the urn-carrying Paul Bearer. Calaway's relationship with Vince McMahon was also detailed. Calaway said,

Physically, it's becoming harder and harder to do what I do. My mind is saying yes, but my body is saying, 'Slow your roll.' There's got to be a time where I step aside. It's a lot on my body to work even the limited schedule that I do. I still have young children, I need to think about them, too.

The documentary never truly answered the question of The Undertaker's future. Blurred reality is a necessary part of pro wrestling. Is he really retired? Does he have one last match for the fans? Only time can answer all these questions.
