WWE did its best to give a surprise to its millions of fans from WrestleMania 33, but in a shocking twist, made them teary-eyed. The Undertaker fought for the final time Sunday, April 2, 2017 at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
Tears were shed, hearts were broken. Mark William Calaway, took off his gloves, his iconic overcoat and the hat following his defeat against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, and bid goodbye in his own unique way...after as many as 27 years with the WWE.
The Undertaker was so moved with the entire twist in the tale he cooked up, that he broke his WWE character for a moment, and kissed his wife Michelle McCool, while on his way out of the arena.
