WWE Legend the Undertaker (real name Mark Calaway) turns 51 today and he did so in a fashion that would make his WWE character proud! Onnit posted a 'Happy Birthday' message to the Phenom himself, accompanied with a picture of Calaway posing with a massive Hell In A Cell cake! I could talk in detail about how awesome it looks, but I'll let the picture do the talking!
Undertaker returned to WWE earlier this month for the beginning of what will be his 26th year with the company! He will step inside the demonic "Hell In A Cell" for the 13th time at WrestleMania 32 in his home state of Texas when he battles Shane McMahon with the future of WWE and the Undertaker's WrestleMania career in the balance. 'Taker is reluctantly representing Vince McMahon and if he loses, Vince has stated that it will be his last WrestleMania. Undertaker is currently a staggering 22-1 at WrestleMania and no doubt, will dominate again this year inside the "Devil's Playground" (or make that the "Deadman's Playground).
An undeniable Legend, The Undertaker debuted in WWE on November 22nd, 1990 at Survivor Series. He has since amassed a career of longevity and achieved a legendary status that few can even come near. He is a 7 time World Champion, former Hardcore Champion, 6 time WWE Tag Team Champion, former WCW Tag Team Champion, 2007 Royal Rumble Winner and at onetime had obtained 21 consecutive victories at WWE's premiere show WrestleMania ("The Streak) - which now stands at 22-1. But the statistics don't stop there: he is the only active competitor who competed on the very first episode of Monday Night RAW who is still signed to the company, he was the first man to win a Royal Rumble from Number 30, he has appeared at more WrestleManias (23, this year will make 24) than anyone in history and currently holds the record for most consecutive appearances at the event with 15 (this year will make 16) consecutive matches at the event. He was also an innovator of many of WWE's most famous matches, taking part in the inception of the Casket Match, Buried Alive Match, Hell In A Cell Match, Last Ride Match and the Inferno Match. I look forward to seeing him compete inside Hell In A cell one more time and hopefully defeating Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32.
Undoubtedly the Greatest of ALL-Time, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Undertaker, Mark Calaway, a VERY Happy Birthday! May it be filled with happiness! Here's to the next 51 years!
