Undertaker retires after WrestleMania – leaves gloves, coat, hat in ring
The Undertaker lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando on Sunday in an outcome many saw coming. This is Reigns’ time to shine, and the Taker decided to call it a career.
Following his loss to Reigns — an ending many felt was dissatisfying — Undertaker took off his gloves and left them in the ring, along with his jacket and hat.

The whole package was a symbol that the Taker was retiring. The announcers all kept quiet, choosing to let the visual images, dark colors, and playing of the Undertaker’s music represent the moment, which is the close of one of the best careers in WWE history.
