World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) legend Mark Calaway, better known by his ring name The Undertaker, bowed out of the industry after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 on Sunday.
The loss to Reigns was only the second defeat for The Undertaker at WrestleMania, where he had won an unprecedented 23 matches in his career.
His first loss at the event had come against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 in 2014.
After the match, he laid down his wrestling gear in the ring to signal the end of his nearly three decade-long career.
Ahead of the much-hyped bout with Reigns at WrestleMania, rumours had been circulating on social media that it would be The Undertaker’s last ever match, and following his loss, many WWE fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to him.
