The Undertaker played his last WWE match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, later announcing his retirement from the docu-series 'The Last Ride' The Digger has admitted that he is no longer able to sustain the efforts required by professional wrestling and that he does not want to undermine his legacy.
The Deadman received a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues at the 2020 Survivor Series, where his legendary career had begun 30 years earlier. Recently, 'Phenom' starred in an interactive film called 'Escape The Undertaker', which was released on Netflix on October 5th.
Joining him were New Day members (Big E, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston). Appearing in the latest edition of 'WWE The Bump', Taker expressed his delight at how things went on set.

“The filming schedule was very ambitious, as the New Day members had their commitments related to WWE, house shows and more.
We shot the whole movie in one week. It's been a really long day, but those guys were great. They have monstrous creativity and they brought a lot of energy to the set. We had a lot of fun, I think New Day was the right faction for that role.
The final result made me really proud” - said The Undertaker. The former WWE champion had some fears in preparation: “I had worked in the ring with the New Day, but nothing too serious. I was afraid that the contrast between their positive energy and The Undertaker's dark force would be hardly believable.
I was quite wary at first, I can't deny it. I thought Undertaker would stray too far from his roots. Fortunately, the outcome was the opposite. Their resourcefulness made a positive difference" Taker ruled out his return to the ring: “The passion is still intact, but my days as a wrestler are now over.
I am no longer able to offer people what they expect from a superstar like me." Over the years, The Undertaker has become synonymous with Wrestlemania. The Deadman's unbeaten streak at the Grandest Stage of Them All was one of the biggest attractions and crowd pullers for the event.
Even after Brock Lesnar broke the streak at WrestleMania 30, the Undertaker continued to remain a star attraction for fans at WrestleMania. His last televised match came on Night 1 of WrestleMania 36. This time, Taker, in his American Badass gimmick, locked horns against AJ Styles in a Boneyard match.
