Heading into Undertaker’s “Final Farewell” at Survivor Series next weekend, Mark Calaway is as retired as he can get. He’s also a WWE lifer, so... what’s next for the Dead Man, professionally speaking?
That’s what The Wrap asked him, and Taker revealed he could be following Shawn Michaels career path...
“You know, that’s the pickle that I’m in right now, is trying to [figure] out what lane I want to take. I’ve been on the road for so long, that really doesn’t appeal to me, traveling and doing all that. I love to teach. Triple H and I have had many conversations about me working with the talent there at NXT, in Orlando at the PC. And I really enjoy that. And we’re just trying to figure out how it works because I’d have to come in and go out. I live in Texas. So I’m sure I will do more of that moving forward. I think there’s a lot of– I think I have a lot to offer. The product is changing and evolving, but I think there’s a lot of what I bring to the table that is still applicable to the product and these guys need to hear it and see it from somebody who has made it work. So we’ll see what happens there.”
From presentation to psychology to locker room etiquette, Calaway would be a great resource for the men & women at the Performance Center. Sounds like it would only be a part-time gig at first, but that’s how it started for HBK, too.
How do you think The Phenom will do working with next generation on a regular basis*?
* Undertaker and Michelle McCool did some guest training at the PC earlier this year.
