You would be surprised too. This past weekend, WWE said goodbye to Undertaker after a thirty year in-ring career. That is the kind of thing that you don’t expect to see but it finally had to happen. Undertaker has been a bit past his prime for a good many years now but there is still something to be said about that gong going off. At the same time though, there is something else Undertaker can do and now we are getting to see just that.
One of the more interesting things to see over the last several months has been the other side of the Undertaker. Instead of being the character, it has been a lot more Mark Calaway in recent months, as he has given several interviews and shown the man behind the character. It takes some getting used to and now we are seeing a slightly funnier side of him as well.
Well that’s just awesome. Check out what Undertaker is up to:
WWE and Omaze are taking part in a contest with the grand prize of a tour of the Performance Center with Undertaker. At the same time, a video has been posted of Undertaker working with Omaze to surprise some fans. The fans are being told to cut promos on Undertaker and then imitate him, only to have Undertaker pop into their video chat as a surprise. The reaction shots are included and Undertaker chats with each of them as well.
Opinion: I know this isn’t the kind of video that everyone is going to like but there is something amazing about Undertaker getting to do this kind of thing after all these years of being this character that you only see as the stoic, curtained off star. You haven’t gotten to see this in thirty years and now that he is finally being given the chance to see him do this stuff, it’s pretty cool indeed.
