At WrestleMania 33, The Undertaker had what many people, including himself, thought would be his last match. The match with Roman Reigns was one to forget as Undertaker struggled to move throughout and couldn't perform some of his signature spots.
On Chapter 2 of The Last Ride, fans witness the fallout of the WrestleMania 33 match, including Roman's thought on how things played out.
"It's heartbreaking," Reigns said about Undertaker's condition and post-match moment. "It affected me, it made me emotional and want to cry. I don't regret anything. Was it perfect? No. We were in the moment and as live television performers, anything can happen. To be able to do that, it's all coming back on his character and the responsibility he holds and succeeds at. If there is something that has to be done and a goal, the man gets it done, plain and simple. It couldn't have been easy. I can't imagine being at that decision or point in my career or life to where this is the last one. It's still hard to fathom."
Undertaker previously stated that he was disgusted by the WrestleMania 33 match and felt bad for Reigns. In the documentary, Undertaker said, "I did the best I could do for him, but the problem was my physical condition. My body was at the limit of what it could take."
Vince McMahon said about Undertaker following the match, "He wasn't there. And he knew in his heart that he wasn't there. First and foremost, you care about the human being, then you care about the character."
Despite leaving his hat and gloves in the ring following WrestleMania 33, Undertaker did not retire. He returned at WrestleMania 34 to defeat John Cena in a short outing and has continued to wrestle, most recently competing in the Boneyard match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
