Mark peeled off the layers and mystique behind his character for the first time in his documentary, showing his fans who the man underneath was actually about. One of the most significant parts of the Undertaker’s career was his bout with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.

After losing the match, which he was very unhappy about, he walked around the ring, found his wife in the crowd, and kissed her. This was monumental within the mythos surrounding The Undertaker. It turned out to be the biggest and most explicit breaking of his character since his entry into the promotion 30 years ago. 

“It was at that moment that I knew he was done”. Michelle said, referring to Mark’s supposed last fight at WrestleMania 33.
