The Undertaker is one of the most famous wrestlers of all time. His career has eclipsed WWE and he is also in possession of the longest undefeated streak in WrestleMania history.
Sadly, it all ended at WrestleMania 30 when "The Streak" was broken by Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker wasn’t seen for an entire year, returning to defeat Bray Wyatt the following year.
This year was no different; he defeated Shane McMahon in his famous Hell in a Cell Match before disappearing from WWE TV. This has become the way of Undertaker’s career over the past few years, he's the perfect candidate for playing the role of a Deadman because he manages to pull it off so well. But The Undertaker has a much softer side.
WWE doesn’t often publicize the great things that Undertaker does for his fans. Some fans are still determined to prove that The Undertaker really is a demon, but the following list of 10 stories will prove beyond all doubt that The Undertaker isn’t really a bad guy outside of the ring.

Kaia was Taker’s fourth child after his son Vincent, who was born in 1993, and his two daughters Chasey and Gracie, who were born in 2002 and 2005. Taker is a loving father and many photos of him with his family can be found online.
