  • I remember the 1st time i saw him, he was still Mean Mark, wrestling for some promotion we got on KTUL 8 out of Tulsa in the late 80's I guess. I know it was before I got married, which was 1993. So for 30 years he was part of professional wrestling, that is a long time for a man his size. Sadly, time catches up with all of us at some point.

  • I remember him as Mean Mark and yes he been a fixture the past 30 years as much as Flair , the Funk Brothers and Dusty Rhodes were in the 70's and 1980's

  • Going to miss Taker come WrestleMania time next year. I remember first seeing him as "Master of Pain" in Memphis Championship Wrestling on Saturday mornings. He always feuded with Lawler.

    Yeah, he had made the decision to retire from the ring a few months before his last match. That last match between Taker and Roman Reigns was for all purposes just a "Passing of the Torch".

    Which is what guys like UT have done for decades in that profession.
