30yrs ago today, he made his iconic #SurvivorSeries debut.— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) November 22, 2020
Like EVERYONE - I was in awe as a rookie in the @WWE when his first words pierced my soul as he walked in the dressing room and said, “Muthafucka” True story

The measuring stick. The locker room leader. The Phenom. Three decades ago today, @Undertaker changed the landscape of sports-entertainment. His legacy is incomparable, his impact immeasurable. #ThankYouTaker. #Undertaker30 pic.twitter.com/TWm1Ihww8U— Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) November 22, 2020
It’s been an absolute honor and a privilege getting to share time and memories with @undertaker in and out of the ring over the last 30 years. Congratulations on an incredible career! #Undertaker30 #FBF pic.twitter.com/69cBZe0HCc— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) November 20, 2020
For not killing us when we deserved it....not believing us when we were full of sh** ....and holding us to a higher standard ... yet ALWAYS having our backs. #ThankYouTaker #SurvivorSeries pic.twitter.com/4bkm2PPoid— Triple H (@TripleH) November 22, 2020
We’ve faced each other in every type of match and created some of the most special moments in my career. Standing across the ring from @undertaker was always a daunting experience but I’m excited to hear the gong toll one last time. #FarewellTaker #SurvivorSeries— Shawn Michaels (@ShawnMichaels) November 22, 2020
After three decades of @undertaker committing wholeheartedly to the @WWE, tonight we bear witness to the end of an extraordinary body of work. For all the in ring moments and as a member of the @WWEUniverse, I say #ThankYouTaker! #SurvivorSeries #Undertaker30— John Cena (@JohnCena) November 22, 2020
It was enough having to say #FarewellTaker with the bits of knowledge and laughs his kindness afforded me.— Sad Lee (@RealKeithLee) November 23, 2020
But this moment messed me up. Met Paul Bearer back in 2006. Besides Killer, he was one of the first offer me advice and tell me I had something special.#Goosebumps https://t.co/lnZHDdJ2b7
Without @undertaker There would be no Murderhawk.— The Murderhawk Monster Lance Archer (@LanceHoyt) November 23, 2020
You took the time in a gym in Austin TX nearly 20yrs ago to talk to and give advice to an aspiring kid who hadn’t done jack in the biz yet. Your words resonated with me & kept me going forward! #ThankYouTaker
I remember going to Summerslam 05. First show I went to with my dad. I was a huge @RandyOrton fan. He was a huge Undertaker fan.— Chris Bey (@DashingChrisBey) November 23, 2020
Orton won with the help of his dad and I was so pumped.
Everyday I miss my dad. I’ll never forget that memory though. #ThankYouTaker
