The Undertaker-Mark William Calaway- The legend in the world of wrestling
Friends, for the past 30 years this name- The Undertaker has been one of the most famous names for the fans of WWE- World Wrestling Entertainment. If I mention my childhood, I was a very big fan of the Undertaker since I was watching WWE – may be from 1993. I and my friends used to think so as was shown, that the Undertaker was a Dead Man and after a fight he buries his opponent in the coffin. People just love him and he has a huge fan following of all ages and from all parts of the world.
All the big names in the business have huge respect for the Dead Man, he was widely called. But for fans like us, he is the Undertaker and with all respect let’s call him by his original name Mark William Calaway. Born in 24th March 1965 at Houston, Texas, USA, he retired from professional wrestling at the age of 55 on 21st June 2020. I never met him or connected to him but through the matches and appearances he used to have in the telecast of different wrestling events including the Wrestlemania where he has the highest number of appearances and wins.
Most importantly, the biggest event of WWE, the Wrestlemania, the Undertaker was won 21 titles continuously till Brock Lesnar won it against the Dead man in WrestleMania XXX. That moment was a shock to the undertaker fans when they witnessed the first ever defeat after 21 wins. This was really sad but positive vibes from the fans as well as the Dead Man’s come back made it up for all.
Memorable fights of the Undertaker
These include fights with Hulk Hogan, Giant Gonzalez, Kane, Tripple H, (Mankind) Mick Foley , Goldberg, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, The Great Khali, Yokozona, The Batista and many more stars to name. One of the memorable fights include that with Mankind in a Hell in a Cell match where the severe and long fight was a worth to watch and people still remember it as how both the wrestlers put up their careers for the sake of entertainment. Mankind won the match with the help of Paul Bearer who betrayed the Undertaker during the match in 1998. Apart from that the match is a worth-watch example for all new wrestlers and fans till date.
Let’s see some of the memorable images of the immortal fights of Legends.
Wish to see the Undertaker around
Like all the other fans, I too request the Undertaker, to atleast keep visiting the WWE events so that we still feel his presence around the game, practically making a game it is today. Yes, it’s the wrestlers like the Undertaker who have taken this game to another level and making the entire period of 1990-2020 a legendary period with deep memories in our minds since our childhood. We wish all the good health and great family times to Mr. Mark William Calaway and promise we shall now never call him the Dead Man.
