The pro-wrestling icon The Undertaker has entertained the fans for over three decades and he never failed to allure the fans with his epic persona. The former WWE Women’s Champion Michelle McCool recently opened up about her husband, Undertaker’s life following his retirement from in-ring competition.
Michelle McCool opens up on The Undertaker’s transformation to normalcy
The Deadman officially announced his retirement at Survivor Series 2020 as he received his ‘Final Farewell’. During his illustrious career, he has captured multiple championships and shared the ring with countless legends of the sport. During her recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Michelle McCool stated that The Phenom has become more normal in real life after portraying the demonic gimmick on TV for over 30 years which is, of course, a long period of time:
“Now it has become a little bit more normal. I think Mark can attest to the fact that there is definitely Undertaker in Mark also. There’s a whole lot of Mark, but there’s also Undertaker in Mark in real life. Not with us, but when needs be. It was a little strange at first, you know when we filmed The Last Ride documentary, and people got a glimpse into who he was. I think it was such a treasured thing for so long that people were so interested in who the man behind the character was, and I think that’s special after all these years to be able to see that because a lot of times we judge a book by its cover, including myself. I didn’t want to meet the guy and he wore me down, and eventually, I married him. There’s a lot to him, and I’m glad that his fans after all of these years get to see that.
“To us, it’s always been, husband. To the kids, he’s just Daddy. They know what you do. They know who you are. They know people always want autographs and pictures, but it’s kind of like, why? It’s Daddy. It’s special. We have him home a lot more which is nice, most of the time (she laughs).”
The Deadman could be making his return soon to WWE as per the reports of PWInsider. It stated that he could return at the Royal Rumble 2022 which is scheduled to take place in St. Louis, Missouri, on January 29. It was noted he is going to be there because his wife Michelle McCool will be competing in the women’s Royal Rumble match. It was also speculated that Undertaker could have a huge WrestleMania 38 match.
