The Undertaker has finally called it time on his career and admitted he has 'no desire' to return to the ring after 30 years of wrestling professionally.

The seven-time champion made the announcement on the final episode of the 'Last Ride', a documentary series specially created for him.

Mark Calaway made his final appearance at Wrestlemania 36 when he defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match.

"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.
"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."

However, the 55-year-old claimed he could return into the ring if chairman Vince McMahon would grant him permission.

"If Vince was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time would only tell there.

"[But] at this point in my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring."

Undertaker made his first-ever appearance back at Survivor Series 1990 when teamed up with Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Team.

He had a 21-0 streak of Wrestlemania victories until he was stopped by Brock Lesnar in 2014.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had earlier reported that Randy Orton, who won the WWE Championship belt a record nine times, splashed a huge sum on a private jet not long after confirming a new five-year deal with the organisation.

The 40-year-old is regarded as one of the all-time wrestling legends and has bought a stunning luxury plane following the massive wage packet he agreed upon.

He is now the third highest-paid wrestler behind Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar on a salary of $4.1 million (R71 million).
