The Undertaker on living his character over the years and life after retirement
During one of the episodes of Out Of Character with Ryan Satin, the living legend The Undertaker discussed living with his character over the years and life after retirement.
As a child growing up, Mark Calaway was always fascinated with scary stuff and even death.
There was a time when his family members worked in a funeral home, so he was always around caskets as a child.
He finds it funny now how things work out because little did he know at the time where his career and his future were going to go.
He was in kindergarten when he was in embalming rooms. Reminiscing his memory, he recalled being in an embalming room after the service was delayed for a couple of hours.
According to him, they were going to have a service and had already bought the casket and the deceased in the casket.
Since there was nobody in the chapel, the service was not going to start for a couple of hours, so he decided to go up and see up close the deceased.
He went to the casket, peeked in, and swore that the corpse inside moved. Who knew being around the funeral homes from a young age would end up being a big part of his character.
It was before 1991 before he wrestled Hogan in the survivor series and won the title.
At the time, he had already felt the momentum and the difference in his character presented as opposed to a lot of characters.
He realized to be different from others was always his ultimate goal.
So, he always studied and watched whoever was on top and was always thinking about what he was going to do so that he could be different from others.
Then he studied Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers etc. and presented himself with the character he developed as The Undertaker and had in his mind to give credibility to his character because the character itself was over the top.
He thought he got to make people believe even when people did see him in the airport or out.
And the funny thing is that half of the people would ask him,” Are you really dead”?
Especially during the first four years when everybody coming out of the arena would get mobbed up by people while people would move away from him, and he didn’t have to say anything to people.
People at the time didn’t know how to take him and it just kind of became his way of life.
He didn’t make himself approachable in almost every situation and every place.
It was always in his mind that he was going to have people believe that what they saw on T.V was the same guy that they saw walking in the airport.
He rarely smiled, and since there wasn’t the internet back then, it was just him living in character and even in a lot of family photos, he is stoned-face.
He describes his off-screen personality as a lot lighter and nearly as dark as what people see on TV.
Besides that, he loves cutting up and playing practical jokes at this point now after retirement.
There was a long period when it was hard for him to shut off his character, and because he lived with that character, it sometimes bled into his personal life.
But these days, he is rediscovering who Mark Calaway is, and a lot of things he sacrificed for his career and the character he is getting to do now is cool.
He is finally getting to spend quality time with his kids and wife, where he is no longer sitting thinking about his opponent and what he can do differently there.
He misses being in the ring as he has spent over three decades on T.V. He says if his body would have allowed it, he would probably still be out there.
But he makes a much bigger effort now to do those kinds of things while he still can, and it’s nice being able to go hunting and fishing and hanging out with kids on the beach, he added.
Her net worth is not revealed. But we have the net worth of her ex-husband, who has earned an impressive amount.
He has also showcased his acting skill with his debut film "Suburban Commando."
