Make no mistake, The Undertaker isn't just one of the greatest wrestlers the world has ever seen, he's also one of the greatest entertainers. But with a career now spanning 25 years, some fans have begun to doubt whether The Master of Pain still has what it takes.

With Mark Calaway turning 51 years young next week, it could be easy to write him off. But he is still strutting his stuff in the ring, with a high profile fight against Shane McMahon quickly approaching in Wrestlemania 32.

One Of The Industry's Greatest

The Undertaker signed with WWF back in 1990, and has sustained prominence since defeating Hulk Hogan in 1991. He's gone on to win eight world championships, and holds the records for winning 21 consecutive fights, a record that is maintained today.

The 6'10" man mountain is still a prominent figure in the industry, and shows no sign of slowing down yet.

The sheer magnitude of the physical demands on wrestlers are painstaking and to prove Calaway is still up to the challenge. Joe DeFranco, the owner of the gym where the wrestler trains, uploaded this impressive video seen below.

It shows The Original Deadman lifting a crazy 500lbs, as well as performing a 40 inch vertical jump. It's a phenomenal feat for someone half his age, and proves the doubters wrong.

Watch out Shane McMahon.

Do you think The Undertaker still has what it takes to compete?
