The Undertaker Biography, Early Life

Mark William Calaway born March 24, 1965, better known by the ring name The Undertaker, is an American retired professional wrestler. Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, Calaway spent the vast majority of his career wrestling for WWF/E and is best known for his critically acclaimed “Deadman” Undertaker gimmick, for which he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2022.

Mark William Calaway was born in Houston, Texas, on March 24, 1965, the son of Frank Compton Calaway (died July 2003) and Betty Catherine Truby. He has four older brothers named David, Michael, Paul, and Timothy (died March 2020, age 63). He attended Waltrip High School, where he was a member of the football and basketball teams. He graduated in 1983 and began studying on a basketball scholarship at Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas. In 1985, he enrolled in Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, Texas, where he majored in sport management and played as a center for the Rams in the 1985–1986 season. In 1986, Calaway dropped out of university to focus on a career in sports and briefly considered playing professional basketball in Europe, before deciding to focus on professional wrestling.

Career

  • He made his wrestling debut in 1984 for ‘World Class Championship Wrestling’ (WCCW). He initially adopted the ring name ‘Texas Red,’ and thereafter adopted a series of ring names over the next few years.
  • He joined ‘World Championship Wrestling’ (WCW) in 1989 and was given the moniker ‘Mean Mark Callous.’ The ‘WCW’ did not renew his contract in 1990, and he joined the ‘World Wrestling Federation’ (WWF)—which became ‘World Wrestling Entertainment’ (WWE) in 2002—later that year.
  • After joining ‘WWF,’ he adopted the name ‘Kane the Undertaker.’ He made his official on-camera debut as a heel on November 22, 1990, at ‘Survivor Series’ where he appeared as the mystery partner of Ted DiBiase’s ‘Million Dollar’ team.
  • He feuded with Randy Savage, the Ultimate Warrior, and Hulk Hogan in his first year in ‘WWF.’ At ‘Survivor Series’ in 1991, he defeated Hogan with the help of Ric Flair to win his first ‘WWF Championship,’ and thus became the youngest ‘WWF’ champion, a record which was eventually broken in 1993 by Yokozuna.
  • He wrestled frequently over the next couple of years, but a back injury forced him to stay away from the ring for several months. He returned to compete at the ‘Survivor Series’ in 1994, and defeated Yokozuna in a casket match.
  • In the 1998 ‘Fully Loaded’ event, the Undertaker and the reigning ‘WWF’ champion Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Kane and Mankind to win the ‘WWF Tag Team Championship.’
  • During the late-1990s, he suffered from a groin injury and took some time off from wrestling in order to recuperate. He made his comeback in the early-2000s, donning a new look—he abandoned the mortician-themed attire of the past and took on a biker’s identity. At ‘Vengeance’ in 2001, the Undertaker defeated Van Dam to capture the ‘WWF Hardcore Championship.’
  • The year 2007 was a good one for the wrestler as he finally won his first ‘Royal Rumble’ match that year. He entered the ‘Rumble’ at No. 30 and won the title by eliminating Shawn Michaels, the 23rd entrant.
  • In 2012, the Undertaker appeared on the 1000th episode of ‘Raw’ to help Kane who was being challenged by Jinder Mahal, Curt Hawkins, Tyler Reks, Hunico, Camacho, and Drew McIntyre. The Undertaker and Kane ultimately overcame six other wrestlers in an exciting display of strength and stamina.
  • After losing to Brock Lesnar at a ‘Hell in a Cell’ match in 2015, the ‘Wyatt Family’ captured the Undertaker and carried him away from the ring. Later that year in November, which marked the completion of 25 years of his career in ‘WWE,’ the Undertaker and Kane defeated the ‘Wyatt Family’ in a match in ‘Survivor Series.’
  • After sporadic appearances in the late-2010s, he took part in the ‘Raw 25 Years’ episode, challenging John Cena and defeating him in a three-minute squash match in January 2018.
  • He missed his first ‘WrestleMania’ match in 19 years at the ‘WrestleMania 35’ in April 2019, but returned to ‘Super ShowDown’ and defeated Goldberg. He then joined hands with Reigns and defeated Shane McMohan and Drew McIntyre in a match at ‘Extreme Rules.’
  • Along with his wrestling career, he has also appeared in some films, including the 1991 film ‘Suburban Commando’ and the 1999 film ‘Beyond the Mat.’ He appeared in the television show ‘Poltergeist: The Legacy’ as the ‘Soul Chaser Demon’ in 1999.
