WWE legend The Undertaker was forced to step in after a huge shark came just feet from his wife Michelle McCool.
The wrestling icon – real name Mark Calaway – has been enjoying his downtime after retiring from the ring in 2020.

The 58-year-old is away on a dream holiday at present, believed to be on the luxury islands of the Maldives.
McCool was taking a dip in the sea, when the massive beast could be seen just a short distance away in the shallows.
She had mistaken the predator for vegetation in the ocean, clearly not spotting it properly under the waves.
And Taker – nicknamed the ‘Dead Man’ – stepped up to chase the shark away which was stalking his bikini-clad spouse.
She posted on her Instagram account: “I was simply enjoying a book on the beach when this “vegetation” looked a lot like a shark.
“I text hubby @undertaker – kinda digging that last picture …A LOT #myprotector.”
Thankfully for the pair, it is understood to have been a nurse shark, who are near harmless to humans.
However, it was still a scary moment for McCool, 58, who has been enjoying the week-long summer holiday away.
WWE fans reacted with delight at the video – telling The Undertaker he has still got his scary streak.
One said: “Only the deadman can were all black to the beach & scare off a shark.”
Another added: “I think you forgot your husband is THE Undertaker lol.

“That shark wanted no smoke.”
One joked: “The shark didn’t want to go one on one with The Undertaker!!”
And one replied: “Is it illegal to tombstone a shark?? Genuinely curious lol.”
