Despite retiring his legendary Undertaker persona in 2020, Calaway’s instinct to protect and confront challenges head-on remained as resolute as ever.
McCool, a former two-time WWE Divas Champion who retired from wrestling in 2011, was in need of her husband’s heroism as the unexpected shark approached.
As the couple reveled in the sunshine and relaxation, a shadow loomed beneath the calm waves. McCool, engrossed in a captivating book, suddenly found herself face to face with a shark.
