The Undertaker, on Sunday, revealed in the finale of ‘The Last Ride’ that he had no intention of stepping back inside of a WWE ring, effectively retiring from professional wrestling.

For three decades, The Deadman loomed over the WWE landscape like a menacing shadow, spelling out doom for those who dare cross him. Imbued with seemingly mystical abilities and preternatural in-ring skill, The Phenom is a WWE great in a class by himself.

First introduced in the 1990’s Survivor Series, The Phenom debuted as the final member of Ted DiBiase’s “Million Dollar Team.” It wasn’t long before he began to battle with Hulk Hogan, then at the top of the food chain in WWE. This clash set the tone for Undertaker’s dominant career. No one was too big, and no one was safe from his gloved grip.

His enviable record at Wrestlemania (25-2) is another feather in his cap and his streak, which at one point stretched to 21-0 before Brock Lesnar broke it, served as an immense attraction for Mania over two decades.

However, Taker’s retirement news on Sunday night has sent fans into a complete meltdown as #ThankyouTaker trended top worldwide. Here are the best reactions-

For me, I’ll always remember the rivalry between The Undertaker and Mankind. One that spanned years, a ring, a Boiler Room, Buried Alive, Hell in a Cell. Those two went all in with every match. #ThankYouTaker pic.twitter.com/ErwGaZqKgQ

For nearly 30 years, The Undertaker has entertained us when we needed entertainment. Never went to another company. He stayed loyal to the WWE. If this is truly his last match then it was the best damn way to finish off a HoF career. #TheLastRide #thankyoutaker pic.twitter.com/gs7i3kdMjC
