    William Calway whose know as The undertaker WWE superstar is going to retire 




    William Calaway started his career in 1987, 
    working as various gimmicks for World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) and other affiliate promotions, and he became USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion and WCWA Texas Heavyweight Champion during this time. After signing with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989, he had a brief stint in the mid-card as "Mean Mark" Callous, before joining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1990.

    Calaway was rebranded as "The Undertaker" in the WWF, and gained significant mainstream popularity as a horror-themed, macabre entity who employed scare tactics and held links to the supernatural. The longest-tenured wrestler in company history at 30 years, The Undertaker was one of the most prominent figures of the Attitude Era, a boom period in the company's business in the latter 1990s. His character transitioned into a biker in the early 2000s, before returning to a refined version of his previous gimmick in 2004. The Undertaker is heavily associated with WWE's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, where he became known for The Streak, a series of 21 straight victories, and he headlined the event on five occasions.

    He is also famous for his pairing with storyline half-brother Kane, with whom he has alternatively feuded or teamed as The Brothers of Destruction since 1997. With Kane, he held the WWF and WCW World Tag Team Championships during The Invasion storyline. Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, The Undertaker is a seven-time world heavyweight champion in WWF/E, having held the WWF/E Championship four times and World Heavyweight Championship three times.

    • Personal life 

    Calaway was married to his first wife between 1989 and 1999 and they had a son, born in 1993. Calaway married his second wife, Sara, in 2000. And in 2001, Sara made televised appearances with the WWE (then known as the(WWF) as part of a feud between Calaway and Diamond Dallas Page, in which she was acknowledged as Calaway's wife. The couple had two daughters together before divorcing in 2007. In 2010, he married former wrestler Michelle McCool and the couple's first child was born in 2012.

    In the 1990s, Calaway started his posse that consisted of fellow wrestlers Yokozuna, Savio Vega, Charles Wright, The Godwinns and Rikishi. The faction was called The Bone Street Krew and each member had the initials of the faction tattooed onto themselves, with Undertaker's being prominently shown on his stomach.

    Calaway invests in real estate with business partner Scott Everhart. Calaway and Everhart finished construction on a $2.7m building in Loveland, Colorado, called "The Calahart" (a portmanteau of their last names). A dog-lover, Calaway and his ex-wife Sara established The Zeus Compton Calaway Save the Animals fund at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences to help pay for lifesaving treatments for large-breed dogs.

    Calaway is a fan of boxing and mixed martial arts. He has practiced Brazilian jiu-jitsu and earned a black belt in 2011. His striking gloves and Hell's Gate submission (a modified gogoplata) were also inspired by mixed martial arts.

    Calaway has made several donations to politically conservative causes and Republican candidates and has worn clothing stating opposition to the US national anthem protests.
