Mark ‘The Undertaker’ Calaway almost never was and was a product of WWE CEO Vince McMahon’s mind. Before he presented the idea, Calaway was getting worked up in his own head, afraid he would be something silly like “Eggman” or “Sing In The Shower Guy”. However, McMahon called Calaway one day and asked if this was The Undertaker, to which Calaway responded, “uh yes, yessir this is the Undertaker”.
