The Undertaker Has Announced His Retirement From WWE And Our Childhood Is Officially Over

It's now official. The Undertaker has retired from the WWE after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.


This means his WrestleMania record  ends at 23-2. The only other defeat he suffered was at the hands of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. Before that loss he had a 21-0 record.


Undertaker's career spanned 27 years. For many the childhood is over as most of us grew up watching him pound his opponents into the ground. The man mostly played the negative character and yet when he came out to fight, we couldn't help but watch.
The result was not the ideal way to end a career. He encountered several Spears and Superman Punches before getting pinned.


Before leaving the arena, he left his gloves, hat and robe in the ring. The Phenom broke character by kissing his wife Michelle McCool who was present among the spectators.
It's the end of an era for hardcore WWE fans. For most of us, growing up was synonymous to the rise of Undertaker who would literally dispatch his opponents almost at will.


This match had no build up or a storyline. The ending may have been a bit of a lull, but in no way does it diminish Undertaker's legacy as a WWE legend.


The Deadman has given his last performance. However, there are some memories which he has left us.
Let's take a look at the moves which would leave us in awe as we wondered  - Gold help the person facing him in the ring:

1. Chokeslam


Grabbing the opponent by the throat and slamming him into the ground. Felt painful just to look at.

2. Tombstone


Inverting the opponent and placing his head between his legs and driving him into the ground. As the name suggests, it would certainly signal the end of the contest.

3. Last Ride


Grabs the opponent and places him on his shoulders before sending him down with a lot of force.

4. Old School


The move which made him famous early on in his career. Taking the opponent's hand he would climb the rope walk across and then deliver a hard hit  to the back of the neck, pretty much to inflict as much pain as possible.

5. Leg Drop


After incapacitating his opponent, Undertaker would come crashing down on the sternum with the force of the leg.

6. Sidewalk Slam


Taking the opponent by the side lifting him up and sending him crashing downwards.
