On the final episode of the Undertaker: The Last Ride documentary, Undertaker noted that for now, he is done wrestling, saying "I'm at a point, it's time this cowboy really rides away. There's nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish. The game has changed. It's time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right. This documentary has helped me discover that and opened my eyes to the bigger picture and not judge myself as harshly these last few years."
Fightful will have live coverage of SmackDown.
