The Undertaker aka Mark Calaway is the recent victim of death rumours and the fake news has angered the WWE wrestler's fans.

"It has been just under a week since the WWE Hall Of Famer Ultimate Warrior passed away so suddenly. We just received word that another legend will be joining him. Mark 'The Undertaker' Calaway was found in his Houston home dead late last night by his wife Michelle McCool," the article from Empire Sports reads.
The report also claimed that Calaway suffered a severe concussion during his WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar and was advised to rest by WWE CEO Vince McMahon.
Soon after the fake story was published, the 'Undertaker is dead' article was rapidly circulated via social networks and received several thousand of likes and shares on Facebook.
"You people need to stop saying that this person died or that person died death is not a joke this stupid should be shut down it is wrong to think death is funny I hope you people loose all your reader," an angry reader commented on the article.
The fake news was later republished by another website Huzler.com and created a panic among Undertaker fans. The fake news has angered WWE wrestling fans and they took Twitter to express their displeasure over the death hoax of Calaway.
