WWE legend The Undertaker will make his first ever UK convention appearance at the For the Love of Wrestling event in Liverpool on Sunday April 28, 2019.

Real name Mark Calaway, the 53-year-old’s theatrical characterisation and dramatic entrances made him one of the sport’s most well-known and best-loved participants.
His most famous achievement became known as ‘The Streak’, when he went undefeated for 21 bouts at Wrestlemania before losing to Brock Lesnar in one of the biggest shocks of all time.
