The Undertaker retires from WWE after 27 years

Roman Reigns is not the best friend of a lot of WWE fans right now after effectively retiring The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33.

"The Deadman" took on former World Champion Roman Reigns in a "No Holds Barred Match", a match stipulation where there is no disqualification and the only way to win is via pinfall or submission.

After more than 26 years as one of WWE's most prolific and successful wrestlers, it looks like the Undertaker is hanging up the boots. "Many greats have performed at Wrestlemania but the PPV itself became synonymous with The Undertaker due to his streak; 'The Phenom" is 23-2 at Mania. The Undertaker laid his trench coat, gloves and hat in the middle of the ring after his loss.

Heyman teased it was time for Lesnar to deliver the fans in attendance something special following WrestleMania, hinting that Lesnar was ready to get into some one-on-one action.

Post-Wrestlemania 33, the WWE asked a simple question: "Was this The Undertaker's last (thrill) ride?"

TRIPLE H has paid an emotional tribute to wrestling legend The Undertaker following his last ever fight in WWE.

The fact that the match came at WrestleMania was all the more poignant considering his relationship with the WWE's premier annual event.

Now that the Hardy Boyz are back in the WWE, fans are psyched for tonight's RAW.

The longest of the night was the unsanctioned match between Triple H and Seth Rollins, who triumphed over "The Game" in battle lasting little over 25 minutes. This might be the Undertaker's greatest career moment outside of a Hell in a Cell.

The two men fought around the ring and Taker chokeslammed Reigns on top of the announce table.

Both the WWE and Universal championship changed hands as, surprisingly, Randy Orton defeated Bray Wyatt for the WWE championship, and as expected, Brock Lesnar made quick work of Goldberg for the Universal title. None of these superstars, save from Austin, has the clout of an Undertaker, and 'Taker's also been in the WWF for a number of eras, which includes the Attitude Era. Others are downright entertaining, just like WrestleMania 33.

The Monday Night Raw that takes place the evening after WrestleMania has become a must-see event, almost as anticipated as 'Mania itself.
