The Undertaker is one of the most legendary professional wrestlers in history. For over three decades, “The Deadman” entertained wrestling fans all over the globe with his dark and mysterious character. However, The Undertaker is just a character, and the man behind the character, Mark Calaway is a family man as well. He is currently married to former WWE Diva, Michelle McCool. However, in this post, we will talk about his first wife, Jodi Lynn Calaway. Let’s get started.
Jodi Lynn Calaway: All You Need To Know
Who is Jodi Lynn Calaway?
While the name Jodi Lynn Calaway isn’t instantly recognizable, if you are a diehard pro wrestling fan, the surname will strike a chord with you. Mark Calaway is the real name of the WWE Superstar The Undertaker. Jodi Lynn Calaway was The Undertaker’s first wife and took his surname after marrying him.
Who is Jodi Lynn Calaway’s husband?
Jodi Lynn Calaway was married to Mark William Calaway, also known as The Undertaker, who was the oldest member of the WWE roster. He has been slamming since 1990 and wearing that particular staging that is so his: dark music, macabre props and nods to the supernatural. He was, without a doubt, the man who turned the fights of what was then called ‘pressing catch’ into authentic fantasy and horror mini-films. And there is his impressive record, difficult to match: 22 wins, 1 loss (by Brock Lesnar).
Mark Calaway started his athletic career in basketball where his impressive height and athleticism helped him become very successful. Unfortunately, he suffered from a devastating injury and had to drop all his basketball aspirations.
The Undertaker is famous for being one of the strongest WWE wrestlers of all time. Speaking in an interview, The Undertaker said that he always loved doing Bench and leg presses, giving him unparalleled upper and lower body strength.
When The Undertaker finally announced his retirement, the WWE released a five part series about his life and career called “The Undertaker: The Last Ride” (which is also the name of one of his in-ring moves).
When did Jodi Lynn Calaway marry The Undertaker?

Why did Jodi Lynn Calaway divorce The Undertaker?
The exact cause of the divorce was never revealed to the public as The Undertaker kept his private life quite hidden. The 80s and 90s were also the period of kayfabe where pro wrestlers tried to keep their characters intact in their real lives as well. So there was no way The Undertaker was going to let people know that “The Deadman” was just a regular family man with a long term wife away from the ring.
