A ghostly hologram of Paul Bearer was the highlight of The Undertaker's apparent Final Farewell at Survivor Series 2020, as a vision of 'The Deadman's' legendary former manager appeared at the very end of the segment.
'Taker's ceremony closed the show. It began with a number of important figures from his past hitting the ring - from Kane, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H, to more obscure names like Savio Vega and The Godwinns - before a slick video package played. Incorporating footage covering the full breadth of 'Taker's epic 30-year WWE career, it played out with Metallica's 'Now That We're Dead' playing over the top.
Fittingly, Undertaker used the same Metallica song to enter his final match at WrestleMania 36, where he overcame AJ Styles inside the Boneyard.
A welling-up Vince McMahon cut a promo to introduce Undertaker. Finally, 'The Phenom' hit the ring, which ad cleared out for his arrival. The veteran said it was time for The Undertaker to rest in peace. As he dropped to a knee, the gong sounded, Bearer's "ohhh yeahhhh!" rang out through the building, and there he was, holding 'Taker's urn.
Piped-in cheers and chants filled the building as the gong sounded once more and Undertaker made his exit, seemingly closing his lengthy WWE career once and for all.
