In a recent episode of "Six Feet Under with Mark Calaway," WWE legend The Undertaker offered fans a rare glimpse behind the scenes, sharing a humorous anecdote about rooming with the late WWE Hall of Famer, The Iron Sheik.

This story comes as part of The Undertaker's ongoing efforts to reveal more about his illustrious 30-year career in the wrestling world. The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark Calaway, recounted an incident that occurred late one night in their shared hotel room.

He recalled returning to the room around 1:30 AM, soon followed by The Sheik. Just as he was on the brink of sleep, The Sheik entered and enthusiastically acknowledged Calaway's attempt to rest. However, the night was far from over.

The Undertaker was later awakened by a cold draft and discovered The Sheik on the balcony performing Hindu squats in just his wrestling tights. When questioned, The Sheik cited the health benefits of his exercise routine. Calaway's relief at The Sheik's return indoors, warming the room, was short-lived.

Mustache Moment Mayhem

The tranquility was again disrupted by the sound of a running shower and, subsequently, a blow dryer. This struck Calaway as peculiar, given The Sheik's near-baldness. To his amusement, he found The Sheik blow-drying his mustache.

The Undertaker's recounting of these events paints a picture of the lighter, more humorous moments that occur away from the wrestling ring, offering fans a deeper understanding of the camaraderie and unique characters in the world of professional wrestling.

The Iron Sheik, who passed away in June 2023 at the age of 81, was an iconic figure in wrestling, known for his vibrant personality both in and out of the ring. His passing was met with an outpouring of tributes from the wrestling community, including WWE and AEW, underscoring his lasting impact on the sport.

This story not only reflects the nostalgia and respect The Undertaker holds for his fellow wrestlers but also serves as a reminder of the enduring bonds formed in the high-stakes, emotionally charged world of professional wrestling.

The Undertaker's revelations contribute to preserving the rich history and behind-the-scenes anecdotes of wrestling, ensuring that legends like The Iron Sheik are remembered not just for their in-ring prowess, but also for their unique personalities and the indelible marks they left on their colleagues and fans.
