For close to two decades, the Undertaker has been one of the biggest stars in the world of professional wrestling.

This promotional photo of the Undertaker dates back to his biker era in 2000.

The Undertaker was born Mark William Calaway on March 24, 1965. He is an American semi-retired professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he has been wrestling since 1990. He has wrestled for WWE longer than any other wrestler. Calaway's wrestling career started with World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) in 1984. After wrestling for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as "Mean" Mark Callous from 1989 to 1990, he signed with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, which is now WWE) in 1990.

As The Undertaker, Calaway's gimmick is a horror-themed, macabre entity who employs scare tactics and holds links to the ​supernatural; the character was reinvented as a biker during the early 2000s. The Undertaker is the storyline half-brother of fellow WWE wrestler Kane, with whom he has alternately feuded and teamed with as The Brothers of Destruction. Since unseating Hulk Hogan as WWF World Heavyweight Champion in 1991, The Undertaker has been involved in various pivotal storylines and matches within WWE history.
