The Undertaker played his last match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Barring sensational and improbable twists, the 'Deadman' will no longer be in the WWE ring. Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', the seven-time world champion confessed his current physical difficulties and expressed a desire not to spoil his image.
For these reasons, the Gravedigger has officially announced his retirement from the 2020 Survivor Series after spending nearly three decades in the Stamford federation. During his illustrious career, the 'Phenom' has amassed a flood of accolades and shared the ring with many icons of this business.
'The Demon From Death Valley' has done a great job all these years, staying in character even outside the WWE context. Appearing in the latest edition of 'Busted Open Radio', former WWE women's champion Michelle McCool recounted what her husband's life is like after retiring from wrestling.
Calaway and McCool got married on June 26, 2010, and have a daughter together.

"Now it has become a little more normal. I think Mark himself is willing to admit that there is a part of The Undertaker within it.
There is a lot of Mark in The Undertaker, but also a lot of Undertaker in Mark in everyday life. When we shot the docu-series 'The Last Ride', people finally got a chance to get to know him a little bit better. People have always been very interested in understanding who was the man behind that legendary character" - said Michelle McCool, who will take part in the 2022 edition of the women's Royal Rumble match.
In a recent interview with Dallas Morning News, Taker had beautiful words for his wife: “I think you are one of the most underrated superstars in WWE history. The women are more or less on the same level as men now, they also attended the WrestleMania main event.
During her days in WWE, Michelle fought to get to this point." The Undertaker is undoubtedly one of the greatest WWE Superstars ever to step foot inside the squared circle. A career that began in 1990 lasted a massive three decades, during which The Phenom earned the fans' respect for his unparalleled dedication to the business.
With WrestleMania 38 set to take place in Dallas this year, fans want to see The Phenom take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame. His reported appearance at Royal Rumble this weekend might have something to do with that.
