The Deadman was honoured by WWE as they rolled out a whole host of legends that had played a part in the 55 year old’s iconic career. The Undertaker said goodbye to the WWE Universe in a way only The Phenom could at Survivor Series.
But first, many of The Deadman’s greatest friends and rivals throughout his illustrious career in sports-entertainment made special appearances. Shane McMahon, Big Show, JBL, Jeff Hardy, Mick Foley, The Godfather, The Godwinns, Savio Vega, and Rikishi. Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Kane entered WWE ThunderDome to show adulation to Undertaker.
After another outstandingly produced WWE video package paying tribute to The Undertaker, Vince McMahon himself – a rarity these days – got in the ring and gave the seven-time world champion the fitting introduction he deserved.
And so the stage was set for The Deadman himself to take the ring and address the WWE Universe. Recognizing the many souls he laid to rest over three decades of destruction, Undertaker said the time for him to rest in peace had finally come as well.
Then, The Undertaker finally made his way out with the textbook slow, deliberate walk to the ring. He then gave a final promo.
He said: “Now it’s time for me to rest in peace.”
The tributes to The Undertaker poured in on Twitter and given his legendary career, they’ll be many more to come:
