“I’m at a point, it’s time this cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish,” said the Undertaker.
“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.
“I can do more good outside the ring than I can inside. I’m finally at a place where I can accept that.”

The Undertaker admitted that his Wrestlemania match was as close to a perfect ending. He did tease a possible return in the future if Vince McMahon needed him but admitted that he no longer had the desire to do so.
“I believe I’m at a place now, post-Boneyard, which was a hellacious battle against one of the best in the business. Here you are, climbing on your motorcycle and taking off,” he added.
“There was a lot of thought and a lot of emotion, one of those being ‘are you happy enough with that?’
“It was a powerful moment. You don’t necessarily always get those. If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it.
“If Vince was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time would only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would consider it.
“[But] at this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring.”
