The Survivor Series 2020 took place tonight, a highly anticipated pay per view that marked one of the most delicate and historical moments within the federation. The Undertaker, a legend who has made wrestling and WWE fans dream for about 30 years, officially announced his farewell to the world of wrestling.
Tonight, at the wrestler's last farewell, several athletes and friends of the Gravedigger intervened, a myriad of former WWE Superstars who came out on the ring to pay the salute to their historic friend and colleague.
Among the various wrestlers who appeared in Orlando we saw the following characters at the ThunderDome: Shane McMahon, Jeff Hardy, Big Show, The Godfather, JBL, Mick Foley, The Godwinns, Savio Vega, Rikishi, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, Triple H, Booker T, Shawn Michaels and last but not least Deadman Kane's "brother"
Backstage details on The Undertaker's farewell
WrestlingNews.co's Paul Davis tried to tell exactly what happened backstage at the Survivor Series and according to his colleague the Deadman told everyone in the backstage that he was literally done with wrestling.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon seems to have understood that The Undertaker has now come to an end and will not ask him for another challenge in the ring. Reports state it wasn't easy for Vince to let the character go, but he figured out the wrestler is on the sunset boulevard.
Davis said several people cried backstage and that a "Behind the Scenes" will likely be shot with all the backstories of this huge event. At the same time, it has been claimed that some WWE superstars have joked that Undertaker's career is not over, but that he will be attending some other event in Saudi Arabia.
Of the same opinion are several WWE Universe fans who struggle to believe that tonight's was the last appearance of the wrestler in the ring of Vince McMahon's company. While some of the stars in the ring were interviewed about The Undertaker, Batista, John Cena, and Stone Cold Steve Austin joined in to speak on the iconic wrestler's legacy.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon also paid tribute to The Undertaker, before bringing him out to the ring. The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark Calway, then made his entrance and said a small speech, before tipping his hat and striking his signature pose, with a hologram of Paul Bearer appearing in front of him.
Then he lowered his head as his signature gong sounded. The Undertaker rose as the lights brightened, did his throat-slashing gesture, and walked back up the ramp. His final match was against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a "Boneyard Match"
