Wrestling fans got more than they bargained for at WrestleMania 33 on Sunday: The epic pay-per-view program ended with a small fire on stage at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

A source close to the production tells EW the fire was put out by a stagehand within a few seconds and the fire department was not contacted.

The incident rounded out a show that included the emotional farewell of The Undertaker, a.k.a. Mark Calaway, who appeared to conclude his 33-year wrestling career at the end of the show. After losing a match to Roman Reigns, Undertaker took off his iconic outfit of trench coat and hat, folded them up, and laid them down in the center of the ring. As his funeral entrance music played, he then walked slowly up a ramp, raised his fist, and appeared to disappear into the smoke and lightning of his character’s underworld setting.

That wasn’t the night’s final surprise. The pyrotechnics used in Undertaker’s farewell appeared to set fire to the stage as he left. The incident less harmful than a previous mishap at WrestleMania 24, where the Undertaker’s pyrotechnics misfired and reportedly injured people.
