THE UNDERTAKER had “zero hesitation” in naming the “finest woman wrestler” when asked by Mike Tyson.
Taker, 57, called time on his legendary three-decade career in the squared-circle after beating AJ Styles at WrestleMania 35.
The star, real name Mark Calaway, returned to Survivor Series for his ‘Final Farewell’ in 2021 – exactly 30 years since his debut.
The Phenom will forever be one of the most fearsome individuals to step into the ring but away from the ring he is a doting dad.
‘The Reaper’ is also a loving husband to fellow ex-WWE star Michelle McCool – who he married in 2010 and has a daughter named Kaia Faith with.
And despite his towering presence, the former world champion was taking no risks during an appearance on the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast.

The “Baddest Man on the Planet” asked: “Who’s the finest woman wrestler you’d date?”
To which Taker replied: “My wife.”
Despite boxing icon Tyson’s vast knowledge of wrestling, he responded by asking if she wrestled and where at.
Undertaker informed him that “she wrestles for WWE” before revealing her name of Michelle McCool.

Tyson said: “Okay, cool. What about…”
Before Undertaker added: “See how I did that? There was zero hesitation in that answer.”
McCool – real name Michelle Leigh Calaway – is a retired ex-professional WWE star, best known for her run on the SmackDown Live brand.
She is a former two-time Divas champion but was a middle school teacher before that in Palatka, Florida, US and was also an actress and keen sportswoman.
The 43-year-old, who recently made a comeback in the Royal Rumble in January, previously told Digital Spy in 2020: “I grew up watching [WWE] and [The Undertaker] is not the most inviting person when you’re watching as a fan.
“He was telling someone the other day, ‘She doesn’t like long hair, she doesn’t like tattoos, she says I don’t look all warm and fuzzy.’ I’m like, ‘You don’t.’
“So I grew up watching it and I did not want to meet him. I didn’t want to meet Kane and obviously I married Mark and Kane is just the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.
“But it was just the whole character and he protected it, he lived it and I knew out of respect I had to say hi, but I had no interest in meeting him at all.”
