The Undertaker first walked down the aisle in 1989. His marriage to first wife Jodi Lynn lasted ten years.
Other sites state the couple tied the knot in 1992 and divorced in 1997. Either way, Jodi Lynn was once the WWE legend’s wife. Though the specific reasons for their split are unclear, many outlets from back then stated that Jodi Lynn and The Undertaker had a range of differences and therefore decided to file for divorce.
During their time together, the couple produced a son, Gunner Vincent Calaway.
Gunner Vincent Calaway
Though The Undertaker is the father of four children in total, Gunner Vincent Calaway is his first child and only son. The rest of his children are daughters: Chasey and Gracie Calaway born from his second marriage. And, Kaia Faith Calaway born from his third and current wife, Michelle McCool.
Gunner Vincent Calaway was born in 1993. His mom, Jodi Lynn Calaway and her then husband Undertaker, named him to tribute Undertaker’s boss, WWE chairman, Vince McMahon.
The now 28-year-old is best known for his famous father and it is safe to say he has no interest in following into the wrestling world.
Gunner Calaway attended Full Sail University and holds a Bachelor’s as a video game artist.
The younger Calaway has previously stated in interviews about pursuing a career in video game designing. When asked about becoming a wrestler he said
“Yeah…I’d say as a kid, definitely. You see it so much and you 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 it [professional 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 that I could put my 3D skills to good use and eventually own my own indie company.”
According to his social media, where he has over 3k followers, he describes himself as a ‘Freelance Artist, Illustrator & Streamer’
He also calls himself A.K.A. The Chocobo Champ.
