When WWE decided to air this Last Ride series about one of their most iconic superstars, The Undertaker, we all had this strange feeling we would all witness the End of an Era, and the end of a Legend. Tonight, in the last episode of the series, The Undertaker announced the highly-praised Boneyard Match against AJ Styles that happened at WrestleMania 36 was his last match with WWE, his “perfect retirement.”

“I’m good to walk away … when we started this whole thing, I wasn’t,” The Undertaker stated. After giving 30 years of his life to WWF/WWE, Mark Calaway, aka The Undertaker, 55, has decided to focus on his family and his health. “You can never appreciate how long the road was until you’ve driven to the end,” he says in the tweet at the end of this piece.

The legacy of The Deadman suffers no comparison. The character, his streak, Paul Bearer, Kane, the American Badass turn, it’s very difficult to find something wrong in the long story of The Undertaker. His passion for the business and his strong bond with Vince McMahon sometimes made him push his body to limits only a few men could have tolerated.

The Undertaker says: “This time the cowboy really rides away.” He nevertheless let the door opened for some appearances or a match when necessary. His faith in WWE remains unchanged. Tonight, of course, it is a moment of sadness for every wrestling fan. This is also a moment of celebration because there will never be any other Undertaker but there will always be a man called Mark Calaway who one day decided to embody a Deadman and made generations of wrestling fans fear and dream. Thank you, Sir.
