• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend The Undertaker (Real name: Mark Calaway) celebrates his 54th birthday today.
After wrestling as Texas Red for Fritz Von Erich’s World Class Championship Wrestling and as The Master of Pain for Jerry Jarrett’s Continental Wrestling Association / United States Wrestling Association, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1989 as “Mean” Mark Callous.
In WCW, he was a member of The Skyscrapers, managed by Teddy Long, before he became a singles wrestler, managed by Paul E. Dangerously (Paul Heyman).
At the 1990 Survivor Series PPV, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase introduced him as the mystery partner of his Survivor Series Team, “The Undertaker” managed by Brother Love, thus replacing Bad News Brown who had quit the company a few weeks earlier.
The Undertaker is now considered by far one of the greatest Legends in professional wrestling history, most famously being undefeated at the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania, from 1991 until Brock Lesnar broke the streak in 2014.
Since he never officially retired, we might actually see him wrestle another match rather sooner than later.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNDERTAKER!!

Pretty cool they got Rikishi to come to #GrindCity Wrestling Night. He was of course part of WWE’s Too Cool w/ Jerry Lawler’s late son Brian Christopher Lawler back in the day. Shoutout @DustinStarr pic.twitter.com/ZWFvJfeLvi

Jerry and Rikishi just did the Too Cool dance break with the Grizzlies Dancers. This is goofy and hilarious, but also extremely touching. pic.twitter.com/4QJCyCt7bY
