General | Latest Info

He is the greatest wrestler to ever step in Ring. He is undefeated at WrestleMania, he is loved by so many fans, and at the same time, he has never change. Mark Calaway broke into the wrestling spotlight in 1984. He later joined WWE in 1990 with the gimmick of UNDERTAKER, which then became Deadman or American Badass, and then back to just UNDERTAKER again. His storyline is that of a guy who is connected to Hell or afterlife of Darkness or what have you. Fans think UNDERTAKER was unbeatable because WWE or WWF at times put him into storylines as this Dark character that could not lose. Taker, as they call him, eventually went on to win four WWE Championships and two World Heavyweight Championships. He also won the Royal Rumble in 2007. UNDERTAKER is one of only two remaining stars who appear on the first ever Monday Night RawHBK. Is the otherand he continues to entertain fans with the same old gimmick time after time. With WWE searching for a new fan base, and possibly looking to push some of their young talent, UNDERTAKER will be a big part within story lines. Unfortunately for him, there are many fans like me who are just tired of his gimmick. At WrestleMania 24, Edge versus UNDERTAKER was a match to remember, but it wasn't even worth watching because we all knew who would win. Wouldn't it be interesting to see someone actually beat him at WrestleMania so they could push that character? Internet rumors have said that Edge was supposed to win that match, but they decided to let him keep his reign, same as the match between him and Batista the year before. Don't get me wrong. UNDERTAKER is one of the best wrestlers ever as far as talent. Guy pushes envelope time after time. Who could forget feuds he had with Mankind, or Body bag matches with Ultimate Warrior among many others. Bret Heart said it best in an interview one day; he thought that Mark had all the skill and talent to be one of the best ever, but he never understood while gimmick. The guy isn't really dead, he isn't bullet proof, and all it is is smoke and pyrotechnics that fuel this character. Most matches you see with UNDERTAKER are predictable, except for Last Years One Night Stand in which Edge ended his career, which was shocking; most would think it would be typical back and forth, UNDERTAKER do whatever finisher, and end of the match. Instead they wait to do that match for this past year's Summerslam. Don't get me wrong, it was a great match, but the ending sucked. He slammed Edge to Hell through the Ring. This is where the whole gimmick goes too far. People are tired of seeing it. This is not 1993 anymore and no kid really believes in gimmick like children of the 1990's do.

Career history

Ware with his signature maneuver, Tombstone Piledriver. He also eliminated Dusty Rhodes before being counted out. Shortly after the Survivor Series, cain was dropped from his name, and he was called simply Undertaker. The appearance of Undertaker was model after mortician from Old Western movies, with the gimmick that he was impervious to Pain and possessed supernatural powers, such as teleportation and manipulation of flames and lightning. It was at this time that Undertaker switched managers from Brother Love to Paul Bearer. He made his WrestleMania debut at WrestleMania VII, squashing superfly Jimmy Snuka. The win was the first in his undefeated Streak at the Event. After year of battles with Ultimate Warrior in body bag matches, Randy Savage, and Hulk Hogan, he defeats Hogan to win his first WWF Championship at the Survivor Series.

He then feuded extensively with wrestlers managed by Harvey Wippleman throughout 1992 and 1993, most notably Kamala, whom he faced and defeated in the first televised coffin Match in WWF history at the Survivor Series, and Giant Gonzales, whom he defeated by Disqualification at WrestleMania IX and by pinfall at SummerSlam. In November 1993, he challenged then-WWF Champion Yokozuna to a Casket Match at Royal Rumble. At Royal Rumble, Yokozuna sealed Undertaker in the Casket with the assistance of several other heel wrestlers, winning the match. The Undertaker's spirit appears from inside the casket on video screen, warning that he would return. This began the Undertaker's first hiatus. In reality, he had a back injury that was getting worse and needed time off. After WrestleMania X, Ted DiBiase introduced the Undertaker back to WWF. This Undertaker, however, played by Brian Lee, was dub underfaker later on by fans and led to the return of the original Undertaker, and Battle at SummerSlam between two, where the real Undertaker won the match after three Tombstone Piledrivers. At the Survivor Series, Undertaker had a rematch against Yokozuna, once again in a Casket Match, with Chuck Norris as Special Guest enforcer to keep anyone from interfering in the match. While King Kong Bundy and Bam Bam Bigelow distracted Norris, Irwin R. Schyster interfered in the match; despite this, Undertaker won the match by delivering a running Big boot to Yokozuna, which pushed Yokozuna into the casket, and then closed the lid. Throughout most of 1995, Undertaker feuded with members of Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Corporation.

Much to the delight of his fans, Phenom believed in having his character evolve with the passage of time. During Attitude Era, he don attire of Priest, leading the Ministry of Darkness. He subsequently adopted a biker gimmick, one that received mixed reactions from fans. However, it was with the Dead Man persona that he found most success. What made the Undertaker so respected, so cherished and indeed such an eminent figure in sports entertainment was the degree to which he would protect his character. Unlike most of his contemporaries from over years, very few shoot interviews of him exist. The degree of respect that he commands to this very day is a direct consequence of how serious a man was, with regard to his gimmick. This is why he was locker room leader for years on end, in WWE. He was also a judge at Wrestlers Court, with JBL acting as his second. There is very little that the Undertaker has not accomplished in WWE. In addition to his WrestleMania record, hes held top prize in company multiple times. Hes also been multiple-time Tag Team Champion and even Hardcore Champion, on one particular occasion. Undertaker also won the Royal Rumble in 2007. He seemingly retired from the ring in the year 2017, when he suffered loss to the Roman Reigns. Already on part time schedule, Undertaker would leave his hat, trench coat and gloves in the middle of the ring, seemingly to signal the end of his career.


The Undertaker

The undertaker is known as one of the greatest big men of all time. At a time when big heels were only brought in to feud against babyfaces and slip under the radar, Undertaker proved his mettle as a worker and performer, growing not just in terms of character but also as an in-ring performer, over years. As products evolve, so do Undertakers character. While he makes his debut as a heel, fans quickly get behind man and his character. He becomes babyface in a feud with Jake Snake Roberts, when he saves Miss Elizabeth from Roberts ' evil designs and intentions. Over the years, Undertaker has become part of pop culture because of his unique character and his longevity. Certain moves have become synonymous with him, such as Chokeslam, Last Ride, Hells Gate, and, of course, Tombstone Piledriver. Another signature movie of his is Old School, movie he adopted from Don Jardine. The Undertaker has been part of several memorable segments and programs throughout his WWE career. Whether it involves him conducting a dark ceremony to get married to Stephanie McMahon, or tossing Mankind off Hell in Cell, or even being buried Alive, segments that he was part of will live on in the annals of sports entertainment for many years.
