LONGEVITY :  The undertaker has been a WWE Superstar for three decades. But the moment has arrived when the phenom has ''no desire'' for another match. 

WWE legend Undertaker, may have announced his exit from the wrestling business in passing, after 30 years with the company.

During the final episode of  The Last  Ride, the Phenom talked about how he has done all there is to is to the business and has ''no desire to get back in the ring''.

The Last Ride is a docuseries chronicling the last three years of Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway. Taking in an depth look at the aging veteran behind the Deadman persona, the series explores Calaway's redemption following a lackluster match with Roman Reigns in 2017, that was supposed to be his last.

In the episode, Calaway, recalls his cinematic Boneyard match with AI Styles at Wrestlemania this year. Taken aback, Calaway describes his bout with Styles as a ''perfect ending to a career''.

''There was a lot of thought, a lot of emotion that went through my head, one of those being, 'Are you happy enough with that?' It was just a powerful moment, and you don't always necessarily get those Man, if there ever was a perfect ending to a career, that right there is it,'' Calaway said.

While Calaway did say ''Never say Never'', he did ended up asserting that he doesn't want to be in the squared red circle any more.

''If Vince [McMahon] was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell, there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out the Undertaker, I would have to consider that.

Never say never, but at this point in my life and my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.......... I've got a pit in my stomach right now,'' he said.

Given the nature of the wrestling business with all the false retirements and considering that  Calaway himself had multiple matches since literally hanging up his boots after losing to Reigns, many would have doubts.

Acknowledging that aspect, the self-proclaimed 'last outlaw' of the business, noted that this time around it is for real.

''You can never appreciate how long the road was until you've driven to the end. This time the cowboy really rides away.''
