He is one of the most famous WWE superstars of all time but Mark Calaway, better known as The Undertaker, may have wrestled in his last match. 

The 55-year-old debuted in the WWE as The Undertaker at Survivor Series in 1990 and he has been one of the biggest names on the roster ever since. 

In the fifth and final episode of his intimate documentary series entitled Undertaker: The Last Ride, which aired on Sunday, Calaway suggested that he was done with the business. 

"Never say never but at this point in my life and in my career I have no desire to return to the ring," he said.

"I am at a point this time the cowboy really rides away."

The Undertaker's last match was the unique Boneyard Match at Wrestlemania 36 against AJ Styles. The match was taped outdoors at a location that looked to be an abandoned farmhouse and it received largely positive reviews. 

It is in the ring, though, where The Undertaker's performances have taken a noticeable dip in recent years. 

The nature of the wrestling business means that superstars often return to the ring after retirement, and Calaway could not rule this out. 

The news nonetheless drew numerous tributes from current and former members of the WWE community.
