The only other man to defeat the (dead, in character) living legend at the Super Bowl of professional wrestling was Brock Lesnar, who became WWE Universal Champion last night by pinning Goldberg.

The Undertaker was hit with multiple superman punches, speared through a table and was pinned to the disappointment of the crowd. Taker chokeslammed Roman on a steel chair and nailed a Tombstone Piledriver, but Roman kicked out. At the end of the day, though, all we can be is thankful. From there, it was just a matter of counting to three. It was just the fourth time that Taker had main evented WrestleMania, and there's no better way to go out than on top.

The Undertaker - whose real name is Mark Calaway - removed his signature hat, gloves and coat and left them in the ring after the match in a move that traditionally signifies retirement among wrestlers. 75,000+ fans were on their feet, giving The Deadman a standing ovation.

In an interview with ESPN, "The Guy" bragged about taking The Undertaker's yard, but he was also very sad to retire a legendary superstar.

He lost his last match to Roman Reigns at WWE's WrestleMania event in Orlando, Florida - only his second loss at the showpiece event.

What won't be next is a dream match between Undertaker and A.J. Styles. Also, Taker's intro involved him going to the ring flanked by a bunch of druids in cloaks.

Wyatt successfully returned to wielding his mystical powers during the build-up, and that carried over to creepy video during his match with Randy Orton that projected worms and bugs on the ring. It set up an epic rematch at SummerSlam. But there is only one of them who can be called the greatest of them all: The Undertaker. But this match stood out because The Undertaker simply would not give up, fighting on despite an injury. It seemed Brock would walk away the ultimate victor in this feud.

The Raw after WrestleMania is always the most unique Raw of the year and this year shouldn't be any different.

Thankfully, the match go down in history not for what happened during, but for what happened afterward. This match cemented The Undertaker's legacy as the greatest ever.
