- If You believe In Ghosts Then Check This
Ghosts and spirits are the most fascinating of all phenomena. The words ‘ghost' or ‘spirit' generally convey the idea of something that is dangerous and harmful to physical beings, whereas in reality this is not very true.
Well most of us who had read the title of this hub would be wondering if this is about a dead person or some sick person.Well you may be wrong at that because this the hub about a person named, Mark Callaway.Now you must be wondering who is this guy,well many of you might not know him with this guy.But when most of us talk about "The Undertaker" only one person comes is our mind the wrestling legend who has been entertaning us for more than 15 years.The name I referred earlier is his real name.Surprised..........well you will be surprised even more when you read about his personal life.
Mark William Calaway was born on March 24, 1965 as an American. Obviously we all know him as the Undertaker which is a more than just a name for most of us.The name actually drives our imagination into the history of wrestling entertainment and we only see one person around ,that is the undertaker.
Speaking about his wrestling career, he is currently serving the Smack down brand of the WWE and he is doing really well.
Having joined in 1990.He is one of the most senior wrestlers and the most renowned one too .He is one of only two wrestlers to have appeared on the very first episode of Raw who are still with the company today. The other is Shawn Michaels.
Undertaker began his wrestling career with World Class Championship Wrestling in 1984. He joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989. When WCW did not renew Calaway's contract at the end of 1990, in November of that year he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which became WWE in 2002.
Throughout his career Undertaker have gone through man character changes in which the dominant ones are ‘The dead man persona' and only once he had changed himself into an ‘American bad Ass' entering into the ring with his harley davidson (now that appearance was really cool). But the one he has been most famous for and his usual trademark is being a dead man, arriving in the ring with his usual theme sound and making the fans excited every time he enters the ring and then raising his eyes as to terrify his opponent. This is indeed the most remarkable trademark entrance of a wrestler that I have seen throughout in the WWE.
Undertaker has held many championships around waist but his most remarkable achievement is his 15-0 Wrestle Mania record which is simply second to none. A part from this his Wrestle Mania record, he is a five-time world champion. He has also won the 2007 Royal Rumble eliminating Shawn Michaels.
Now enough of his career and lets talk about his personal life and it would be interesting to know that he is entirely a different character in his actual life than what he pretends to be in the ring.
Undertaker is the son of Frank and Catherine Calaway and is one of five brothers with David, Michael, Paul and Timothy. There are also rumors that Kane is also his brother but that is just a rumor and a storyline created by WWE , in reality they are not brothers at all .He graduated from Waltrip High School in 1983, where he was a member of the basketball team. Calaway first married Jodi Lynn in 1989, and they had a son Gunner, born in 1993, before the marriage ended in 1999. Calaway met his second and current wife, Sara, at a WWF autograph signing in San Diego, California. He eventually married her in a ceremony in St. Petersburg, Florida on July 21, 2000. Mark and Sara currently have two daughters together: Chasey, born in 2002, and Gracie, born in 2005.
He even tattooed his wife's name Sara, on his throat and said this is the most painful tattoo he has ever had (Man what love).Undertaker has several other tattoos: a gravedigger, which he refers to as "Original Deadman", skulls, a castle, and a wizard. He also has a dancing skeleton on the back of his neck. He also has a tattoo on his stomach that says BSK Pride.
Aside from wrestling, Undertaker has many hobbies and interests. He collects Harley-Davidson and West Coast Choppers motorcycles and purchased his first brand new motorcycle after defeating Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship at the 1991 Survivor Series. He is a massive fan of Nick Cave and all his musical endeavors (The Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds). He also enjoys listening to bands like ZZ Top, AC/DC, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden and Black Label Society. He also enjoys country music and blues music.
Undertaker love boxing , Undertaker was also the person who carried the Flag of the United States while leading Team Pacquiao to the ring during Pacquiao vs. Velázquez fight in 2005. Undertaker is also an avid Mixed Martial Arts fan and has attended several Ultimate Fighting Championship shows. May be that is why he is in wrestling as he love all the fighting stuff
Undertaker also began getting into real estate with his partner Scott Everhart. Undertaker and Everhart finished construction on a 2.7 million dollar building in Loveland, Colorado.
I think this guy is really a legend, the best wrestler they have ever had and I hope that we continue to see him forever.
