The Undertaker’s son opens up on following his father’s footsteps in WWE

The son of WWE legend The Undertaker has opened up on potentially following in his father’s footsteps.

‘Taker, real name Mark Calaway, has been a fixture in WWE for almost 30 years, enjoying a stellar career and becoming a bona-fide legend of the industry.

But little is known of The Deadman away from the ring, and even less of his son, Gunner.

Born in 1993 to Undertaker’s previous wife, Sara, Gunner is not long graduated from Full Sail University – which coincidentally happens to be the same campus where NXT is filmed, at Full Sail Arena.

So what chance of Gunner becoming another in a long list of second (or even third) generation superstars? Of joining the likes of Charlotte Flair, Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas, The Usos, Natalya, The Rock and many, many more?

Well, in a rare interview with Chandler Sorrells of The Ring, The Cage, and The Stage [H/T Wrestling Inc.] he answered that question.

And it appears that while in his younger days it was something he held a potential interest in, nowadays, at 25, his focus is very much elsewhere.

"I’d say as a kid, definitely. You see it so much and you’re just think like, ‘Wow, how cool would that be?’ In my eyes, it was like being a superhero.

"As you get older, you get into your teenage years and kind of want to be independent, and find your own interests. So, in my young adult life I steered away from [wrestling] and tuned in when it was necessary.

"I went to Full Sail University and got my Bachelor’s as a Video Game Artist, that’s kind of the path I’m setting before myself. I’d like to, in the next five to ten years, be an artist for a team in a production company for video games.

"Something I could put my 3D skills to good use and eventually own my own indie company.”

He also opened up on previously meeting Vince McMahon and whether the WWE owner is anything like his persona on TV.

"Oh, yeah [I’ve met Vince]. No [he’s not like how he is on TV], but he’s a fun guy to talk to, for sure.

"All of [the wrestlers], you would never think— you see them act a certain way and then meet them in person and they’d be so humble and giving of their time, and just be respectful to people. It’s really refreshing I think.”

The Undertaker, meanwhile, was defeated alongside Kane in his last WWE outing at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia when the Brother of Destruction lost to Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
