Happy Birthday Deadman. WWE legend, and future Hall of Famer, The Undertaker turns 55 today.

Born March 24th, 1965 in Houston, Texas, the man then known as Mark William Calaway would go on to become a high school star in both football and basketball. He would then take his talents onto a college sports career, playing basketball at both Angelina College in Lufkin, and Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth.

After his college sports career, Calaway started training as a pro wrestler. His first pro wrestling match took place under the name "Texas Red" at the Dallas Sportatorium in 1987. By 1989, Calaway had joined WCW, taking on the name "Mean" Mark Callous.

By 1990, Calaway had made it to the WWE, where he adopted the name The Undertaker. He made his official debut at Survivor Series that year, as a part of Ted DiBiase's winning team.

Over his WWF/E career, The Undertaker is a 7-time Heavyweight/World Champion, 6-time Tag-Team Champion, and held the WWF Hardcore Championship once. But the thing he may be known for, more than his titles, are his entrances...

The Undertaker will be a WWE Hall of Fame inductee one day, and there won't be a single person who disagrees with that.
