It has been just under a week since the WWE Hall Of Famer Ultimate Warrior passed away so suddenly. We just received word that another legend will be joining him. Mark “The Undertaker” Calaway was found in his Houston home dead late last night by his wife Michelle McCool.
Calaway who suffered a severe concussion early on in his WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar was taken to a hospital right after and kept over night. After being released Monday Calaway was told by WWE CEO Vince McMahon to go home and rest after receiving a severe concussion early in his WrestleMania 30 match with Brock Lesnar.
Calaway wrestled the remainder of the match with that concussion while relying on Brock Lesnar to carry them both and protect The Undertaker inside the ring. After seeming fine for a few days after going home Calaway was found dead in his bedroom by his wife.
His wife told EmpireSports reports the following: “Being totally honest, I was going into the bedroom feeling completely in the mood. I saw that he was sleeping so I went to wake him and nothing. Not even a hint of him waking up. So I got worried and tried shaking him and shoving him and even hitting him across the back with a folding chair. Nothing working. I checked him breathing and there was a very short breath every few seconds. I called 911 and by the time they got here there was no breathing at all. They fought to bring him back and nothing.”
McCool was Calaways third marriage and the couple had their first child August 29, 2012. Calaway is survived by son Gunner from his first marriage, and his daughters from his 2nd wife Sara, Chasey and Gracie. His legacy will live on in WWE history and his name wont be forgotten as a pioneer in the attitude era and the ruthless aggression era. The Undertaker will be remembered as the greatest entertainer in WWE history and the staff here at Empiresports wishes his family the best.
