Fans of the Undertaker lined up in the late afternoon rain for the opportunity to meet the WWE Superstar at Tampa's largest country venue. The event, hosted by the Dallas Bull in Tampa, was a charity fundraiser for The Angelus – a local non-profit providing care and housing for individuals who cannot care for themselves. All proceeds from the event were donated to the foundation. The meet and greet began at 6:00 p.m. The Undertaker signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans prior to the scheduled matches.
During the intermission, FCW President Steve Keirn came onstage to thank the Undertaker for his appearance, adding that it was especially appreciated since Undertaker's wife (Michelle McCool) is expected to give birth "any day now." The Undertaker came out after the matches had concluded and posed with the individuals from the Angelus that were in attendance. These young, wheelchair-bound adults were delighted to meet the superstar and everyone in the crowd was moved by the moment.
For those present, it was an exceptionally unique opportunity to meet Mark Calaway – the man known as the Undertaker. He was wonderfully personable to everyone he met, taking the time to sign personal items, pose for once-in-a-lifetime photos, and just chat. With such an impressive career it's nice to know that the Undertaker is just as impressive an individual. He'd probably be somewhat embarrassed to know that total strangers exchanged anecdotes about the charity work he's done for various entities. It was a rare opportunity to glimpse into an exceedingly private side of his public persona – a man who willingly comes to the aid of those less fortunate with no expectation of personal gain or credit for this good deeds. In my book, the Undertaker is a class act.
