WWE Legend The Undertaker Reveals How He Plans To Retire From Wrestling
The Undertaker wants to follow in the same footsteps as NFL legends Peyton Manning and John Elway by making his retirement from wrestling special.
The 55-year-old legend, real name Mark Calaway, has entered into the fourth decade of his illustrious career with WWE.
'Taker has admitted that he wants to have a match that stuns WWE fans by showing how much he still has left in the tank and by 'tearing the house down.'
And the future Hall of Famer compared that scenario to how Manning and Elway won the Super Bowl before retiring.
The Undertaker told People Magazine: "When you're thinking of the old-school Undertaker, that's not a character that comes down to the ring and says, 'Thank you for being with me for 30 years. It's been a great career. I want to thank...'
"That's not what that guy does if you're being true to the character and what people want to see.
"I've had this amazing career, I've been so blessed to have this career and far exceeded the expectations of when I got in this business.
"But I kind of want the John Elway ending, you know? The John Elway ending, when he went out and he won a couple of Super Bowls and then retired.

"Or Peyton Manning, he wins the Super Bowl, then retired.
"When I'm looking at it, I want that match, that match when it's just like, 'Oh yeah. Bam. I still got it. I got gas in the tank, I tore it down. Now walk away.'"
'Taker competed last month at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard match against AJ Styles, which was met with widespread praise from fans.
The wrestling veteran, whose WWE gimmick was heavily protected in his earlier career, has been the subject of a brilliant new documentary.
Undertaker: The Last Ride is a five-part series, which debuted on the WWE Network, that shows unprecedented behind-the-scenes footage from 'Taker's final chapter of his career.
The second episode, dubbed 'Chapter 2: The Redemption,' will air on 17th May on WWE's live-streaming service.
In other news, the 'Phenom' reportedly inked an astonishing 15-year deal with Vince McMahon's wrestling promotion last year.
