The Undertaker’s net worth – and how became one of richest WWE stars

The Undertaker’s reign of darkness is coming to an end after 30 long years of battling away in the ring.

The Deadman is hanging up his leather jacket after one last appearance this weekend before calling it quits for good.

Regarded as one of the very best, 'Taker told ESPN: "In my mind, I am 100% done. I've come to grips with it. I'm at peace with it.

“I still have the passion to do this. I love it. And physically, if I could do it forever, I would. I just enjoy it that much. But you can't outrun Father Time.

"Physically I'm just not at a point where I can go out and be Undertaker – the Undertaker people expect to see when they pay money to see me wrestle.

“I’m just not physically there anymore.”

Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, is ending a truly spectacular career having quit 30 years after he first stepped foot in the ring.

It will be the second time the legendary hall-of-famer has quit wrestling, having walked away already this year only to be called backfire a Boneyard Match during WrestleMania 36.

But this Final Farewell will come 30 years to the day he first competed as The Undertaker at Survivor Series 1990.

The major send off will mark the end of a long chapter of wrestling history.

Having been the face of the sport for much of his career, The Deadman has delivered a number of incredible matches.

A 17-time champion, the 'Taker is taking a step back as age finally catches up with him.

And he wants to spend more time with his wife, Michelle McCool.

The champion wrestler will not be short of a dollar or two, having wracked up a handsome sum during his impressive reign in the ring.

According to Sportskeeda, Calaway has received $17 million from WWE in 2020 alone, having made 10 TV appearances.

According to various reports, he made another $5 million by making other TV appearances, bringing his net worth in 2020 to a staggering $22 million (£16.5million).

His astonishing career has seen him become one of the most well known, and well paid, wrestlers in history.

And outside of the ring, he has an investment portfolio with properties worth $2.7 million (£2million).

Taker takes to the ring for a final time on Sunday during the Survivor Series for his long awaited "final farewell".
