Mark Calaway, the superstar who protrays the role of the legendary Undertaker has had a career to remember. He has perhaps been the icon and the torchbearer for the WWE for over two decades and is one of its all time greats. But, things could have gone a whole lot differerntly if the WWE’s initial plan for Calaway had materialized.
