Calaway began his wrestling career 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, now WWE) in 1990. Calaway is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.

alternately feuded and teamed with as The Brothers of Destruction. The
Undertaker has been involved in various pivotal storylines and matches within
