The Undertaker Retires

It wasn’t long before he was fighting with Hulk Hogan, who was then at the top of WWE.

He was part of the first-ever Casket Match at Survivor Series in 1992, the first-ever Buried Alive match in 1996 and the inaugural Hell in a Cell Match in October 1997

 

At WrestleMania after he lost the main event to Roman Reigns, the wrestling legend dropped his gloves, hat and trenchcoat in the middle of the ring at the end of Sunday night’s WrestleMania 33.

 

After a quarter of a century of success at WrestleMania, he walked away from the event he helped evolve, leaving his trademark coat and hat in the center of the squared circle.

Fans have been paying tribute to him with the hashtag #ThankYouTaker and #WrestleMania has been trending.
