Mark Calaway, a.k.a. WWE’s The Undertaker, knows he “had no business being in the ring” vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33. In TheWrap’s sneak peek from Sunday’s “Undertaker: The Last Ride” Chapter 2, the Dead Man is training — hard — for his redemption match against John Cena at the following year’s WrestleMania 34.
Working out at Lakeway Crossfit, Calaway welcomes the WWE camera crew to “Hell.”
“I didn’t think this workout was going to be this taxing, cardiovascular-wise,” Calaway said struggling in the sudden 90-degree Texas heat.
“Nobody else feels sorry for me, I’m not going to feel sorry for myself,” he continued. “I shouldn’t have been in the ring last year, simple as that. It won’t happen again, you can bet (on) that.”

Readers can catch the end result — ‘Taker’s full match vs. Cena — of all this preparation here.
In that clip, Elias eats up a nice chunk of time at the beginning. The Undertaker finally shows up around the 9-minute mark, and then he and Cena have like a 3-minute match.
Whatever, it was a hell of a lot better than the Reigns contest.
