As per the report, the legendary wrestler spoke about his recent match against AJ Styles which ended with his burying his opponent and riding away on a motorcycle. He was quoted as saying, "It was a perfect moment. You don't necessarily always get those. If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it."

Undertaker shared a post on Twitter, where he wrote, "You can never appreciate how long the road was until you’ve driven to the end," alongside snippets from the documentary.
