The Undertaker is one of the most recognizable faces in the wrestling business, but all of this began back at Survivor Series in 1990 when he made his debut with the unique Deadman character. Over the years, Undertaker has become an enigma when it comes to his life outside of WWE since he rarely takes part in interviews that are out of character.

The former World Champion recently spoke to Fellowship Church’s Senior Pastor Ed Young where he was able to open up about the first phone call he received from Vince McMahon where the WWE Chairman signed him to the company.

“I got the call from Vince. The call was something like this. The phone rings. I pick it up. ‘Hello?’ ‘Is this The Undertaker?’ ‘Undertaker? Yeah, this is The Undertaker.’ ‘Haha! Alright then. Can you be up here tomorrow?’ And the next day I was on a plane. That was Vince, [he] called me. He had this character. The original character was based on an old western undertaker.” Undertaker remembered via WrestlingInc, “at the time, people were just so enthralled with it because it was so different.”

Over the past few decades, Undertaker has amassed the longest undefeated streak in WWE history at WrestleMania and become an icon within the WWE Universe.

Despite this, The Deadman is still yet to walk away from the wrestling business and even though he has hinted at retirement a number of times over the past few years, he is still set to wrestle at Crown Jewel on November 2nd, when he will reunite with Kane to form The Brothers of Destruction against the team of Shawn Michaels and Triple H.
