Mark Calaway (born March 24, 1965) is an inactive American professional wrestler, better known by the ring name, The Undertaker. He is currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment wrestling on its SmackDown! brand, but is currently inactive recovering from a torn bicep.
As of 2007, Calaway is one of the longest-tenured performers in WWE, having joined in 1990.
Before coming to World Wrestling Entertainment, Calaway began his wrestling career with World Class Championship Wrestling in 1984. He joined World Championship Wrestling in 1989. However, WCW never renewed Calaway's contract at the end of 1990, and he joined World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as the World Wrestling Federation) in November of that year.
He is most known in World Wrestling Entertainment for being undefeated at WrestleMania, and being a five-time World Champion; four times as WWE Champion, and a one-time World Heavyweight Champion.
Calaway was trained as a professional wrestler by Don Jardine in 1984 at World Class Championship Wrestling. He received his trainings in WCCW for four years. In 1988, he left for Central Illinois Wrestling and worked there for a year. In 1989, he wrestled in Championship Wrestling Association/USWA Memphis where he wrestled as the masked "The Punisher". He also wrestled for USWA Texas and then left for World Championship Wrestling.
World Championship Wrestling (1989-1990)
His first mainstream exposure was in World Championship Wrestling (WCW). While there, he was known as "Mean" Mark Callous and wrestled as part of the Skyscrapers tag team along with "Dangerous" Dan Spivey and later as a singles wrestler. His most famous match in WCW was against Lex Luger for the NWA United States Championship at the 1990 Great American Bash, which he lost when Luger pinned him after a clothesline. At the end of 1990, WCW declined to renew Calaway's contract, and he signed with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in late October 1990. During that time, he also toured New Japan Pro Wrestling.
