EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 1:
There may only be one person in the entire WWE Universe who actually wants the Undertaker's renowned undefeated WrestleMania streak to end.
And that individual is said to be the Undertaker himself.
Unlike many larger than life ring personas in the history of professional wrestling, Mark Calaway has always been able to distinguish himself from the iconic on-screen character he has portrayed for close to a quarter century. It's a skill that some of the industry's biggest stars - including Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior - have reportedly been incapable of cultivating.
For all of his accomplishments and unrivaled stature in sports entertainment, Mark Calaway is a man without ego who doesn't believe any one superstar is bigger than WrestleMania itself.
“Undertaker is one of the most consummate professionals inside and outside the ring,” says famed grappler and WWE Hall of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart.
Hart’s sentiments have been echoed by Calaway’s peers throughout his career. In fact, those who knew Mark Calaway in 1990, shortly before his WWE debut, say he is the same man in 2012.
