Becoming a living legend was not a piece of cake

Becoming a living legend was not a piece of cake. There is a story of pain and injuries behind the success story. 

During his three decades of a wrestling career, he was at a point where he was two inches from death. 

He had 17 surgeries, including several joint surgeries, surgeries on shoulders, biceps, knees, and surgery for repairing both crushed eye sockets. 

He was accidentally set on fire, concussed several times, did lots of stretching, and ice was needed throughout his career. 

Despite all these, he continued his career, which has left an indelible mark in history.

His wife is a protective mother

It does not matter how great or mature you become, but in front of mothers, you are still a baby. 

His wife scolded many of the professional wrestlers for hurting her son, which sometimes reached into a heated argument. 

In an interview, Shane McMahon, minority owner, and producer in WWE, recalled an incident of 2016 where Mark's mother scolded him at a dinner before WrestleMania32 for punching him in his eyes and making him bleed on Night Raw before Wrestlemania.

The moment after he asked her how she was and hugged her, she grabbed him with both arms and started scolding in front of her son, who was bowing his head humbly. 

It got to a point where he had to quit taking her to the show.

One of his five sons died of a heart attack

He is a father to his five sons, including Mark Calaway. His other sons are Timothy Calaway, Michael Calaway, David Calaway, and Paul Calaway.

One of his sons, Timothy, died of a heart attack at 63 in March 2020. It was when The Undertaker was filming Wrestlemania 36

He got the devastating news from his niece, which left him completely heartbroken. 

According to the source, before starting his own trading company, he was into a pro-wrestling business.

What is Mark doing now?

Starting his WWE journey from November 22nd, 1990, and retiring after three decades on November 22nd, 2020, the living legend The Undertaker has become a complete family man. 

According to Mark, he had spent his whole life focusing on business, and now shifting his focus to his family, which is a more important part of his life, he is much happier. 

After giving his biggest part of his life in wrestling, he is now fully engaged in being a husband to his now-wife, Michelle McCool, and a father to his children.
