the undertaker

For decades The Undertaker was one of the most iconic characters in wrestling and the man behind the gimmick did everything he could to make sure he kept The Undertaker’s mystique intact.

There’s no denying that The Undertaker had one of the more unique looks in professional wrestling, and Taker recently explained on his Six Feet Under podcast that Vince McMahon was less than thrilled when he started getting tattoos.

“I remember showing up and Vince seeing my arm — he cussed me like a dog! ‘Goddamn, why would you do that to yourself! You can’t do that! You can’t mess with the gimmick without talking to me first!’”

“So, I got the inside done and he didn’t notice. I don’t think The Undertaker would have been the same. I think the tattoos were part of the mystique. Even with the original Deadman character, it just added to it.”

The Undertaker has not appeared on WWE programming since he confronted Bron Breakker on the October 10, 2023 episode of NXT. There’s currently no word on when he could be making another appearance on WWE TV.
