WWE Survivor Series 2020 closed out with The Undertaker saying goodbye to the WWE Universe for the final time. It was 30 years ago on this very pay-per-view when The Undertaker made his debut as the mystery partner of Ted DiBiase and what an incredible career he has had over the last three decades.
Several WWE legends and Hall of Famers were present for The Undertaker's Final Farewell and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon himself looked very emotional while praising The Phenom. After a special video on his career, The Undertaker made his way to the ring with his iconic entrance theme with the ThunderDome echoing with the chants of 'Thank You, Taker'.
The Phenom took the mic and stated that the time has come to let The Undertaker rest in peace.
He then performed his signature pose in the ring with a hologram of his legendary manager late Paul Bearer appearing, in what was truly a nostalgic moment. While there were rumors of 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt interrupting this segment, it appears as if this was the official retirement of The Undertaker. Truly, the end of an era.
We at Sportskeeda congratulate The Undertaker for a legendary career and thank him for all the memories over the years.

Vince McMahon was suddenly in the ring after a video package, and he spoke about what The Undertaker has done for three decades. He said that they are there to say goodbye, and he got a bit choked up while delivering those lines.
Then The Undertaker made his way to the ring, and he received all the spectacle that the ThunderDome could give him.
The Undertaker was left alone in the ring while the virtual fans around the ring chanted his name. He said that he’s made “that slow walk to this ring” for 30 years and laid people to rest time and time again. “Now my time has come.”
Chants of “Thank you Taker” boomed around him as he continued. “My time has come to let The Undertaker rest in peace.” Then he struck his iconic pose as Paul Bearer’s “oh yes” played over the speakers. A holographic version of Bearer appeared before Taker.
He has considered himself retired and said so in recent interviews. This appeared to be a large send-off to retire The Undertaker in a cloud of blue smoke just as he entered the WWE Universe.
