The Undertaker has talked about his thought process when it comes to the one man storytelling shows he does and how they compare to wrestling matches.

When it comes to WWE legends, they don’t get much bigger than The Undertaker. His WWE career started in 1990 at Survivor Series and ended in the pandemic year of 2020 when he defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match. Later that year at Survivor Series 2020, The Undertaker officially retired as a wrestler.

Following his WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2022 which included a lengthy speech in the ring that summarized his career very well, The Undertaker started doing one-man shows where goes onto a stage to talk about stories from his incredible wrestling career. It provides fans with more of an insight into the man behind the character, Mark Calaway.

The shows that The Undertaker does usually take place one night before whatever WWE PLE that the company is running, so he was in San Antonio on Friday night prior to the Royal Rumble and he’ll be in Montreal on Friday, February 17th one night before Elimination Chamber in that city as well.

They are called “Undertaker 1 deadMan Shows” because they are simply one man telling stories about his legendary 30-year career in WWE and the lessons he has learned in his life as a 57-year-old married father.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, The Undertaker spoke about his thought process for the shows while claiming that it has become similar to putting together a match.

“I’m trying to give people the layers and stages of my life that brought me to where I am now. It’s a very limited audience, and I want to make it special. I want people to leave being blown away. Especially with my character, who hardly said a word for 30 years, I want people to think, ‘I can’t believe all that was going on.’”

“I want to make people think. I want them to believe in themselves. I want to entertain, but also use my experience to show that anything is possible. My story exemplifies that. I was told, at every turn, I wasn’t good enough. Yet look at the final product. Hopefully that gives people inspiration to battle through in their own lives.”

“The tricky part is telling the right stories in the right manner. It’s just like putting together a match.”

Last Monday on the 30th Anniversary of Raw, The Undertaker (dressed as the American Badass on a motorcycle) choked LA Knight and tossed him over to Bray Wyatt, who dropped Knight with a Sister Abigail neckbreaker. After that moment, The Undertaker whispered something in Wyatt’s year that Wyatt claims he will never share because it was a personal moment between them.
