Whether you’re a wrestling “smark” or not a fan at all – you’ve heard of The Undertaker. The WWE legend wrestled as the creepy “deadman” for 30 years and thrilled audiences the entire way, until his 2020 “retirement”. Now he’ll be taking the stage in Las Vegas for one night only.
“1 deadMAN SHOW” features the professional wrestling icon – real name Mark William Calaway – on stage telling stories about his past and taking questions from the audience. Last summer, he brought the show to Nashville, Boston, San Antonio and Philadelphia with huge, sold-out success.
He’ll be taking the stage at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas on Friday, March 24th – a week before Wrestlemania takes over Los Angeles. He’ll also have a show in LA. Tickets go on sale for Valentine’s Day – so now you know what to get your man.
What is The Undertaker going doing on stage in Las Vegas?
Wrestling culture is a really interesting one, and features something that real fans call “shoots”. These are going off-script and telling it like it is, versus wrestling which can be quite scripted. The opportunity to pepper one of the biggest titans of the industry questions that can get real and raw answers is a huge draw.
Calaway has been at least present at, if not involved in, some of the biggest moments in “sports entertainment”. Not to mention in 1998, The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 feet through an announcer’s table.
When we said he announced his “retirement” in 2020… we meant it loosely. The Undertaker just returned to WWE’s famed weekly episodic wrestling show Monday Night Raw for a brief spot, if only to silently plug the upcoming shows. But never say never.
