But now that he has said ‘goodbye’ to the squared circle, ‘The Deadman’ finally talked about his favorite job outside the ring.

Recently, The Undertaker gave an interview with BT Sport journalist Ariel Helwani. There he reflected on his 30 years in WWE and talked about several other things close to him. He even revealed that besides wrestling he loves to tell stories and now he is doing it through his ‘1 deadMAN’ show. During the interview, a moment came when Helwani asked ‘The Deadman’ about the genesis of this particular idea.  

To this, the WWE Hall of Famer replied that during his career as a professional wrestler, all fans knew was just confined to his in-ring character as he didn’t speak much. But during the Hall of Fame, when he delivered a 137-minute-long speech, people realized that he has a lot to talk about. And, that started his journey as the brand ambassador of WWE.

“I love performing in the ring and doing that, but I really love being in the bar, in the hotels afterwards you know having some adult beverages just shooting the crap with the guys and just telling stories. And then you know as I became kind of the Elder Statesman and all these young kids that come up and they want to hear about all that stuff.”

From Mark Callaway to The Undertaker

‘The Deadman’ was very strict when it comes to his in-ring character. He never shared any glimpse of his personal life. The Undertaker strongly believes that to create engaging storylines, a wrestler must have to hide their personal life.
