A former WWE wrestler has discussed having to apologise to The Undertaker and Triple H after he was caught on his phone during a Mexican tour.
The Undertaker was a respected locker-room leader, often settling other wrestlers’ disputes backstage. Matt Cardona (FKA Zack Ryder) has recently recalled having to apologise to Undertaker after being caught using his phone.
Speaking on his MC! True Long Island Story podcast, Cardona recalled him and Brian Myers (FKA Curt Hawkins) using their phones during the Mexican tour. Cardona noticed that Undertaker was angry with them for not showing respect to the wrestlers in the match that the other wrestlers were watching.
He recalled Mark Henry advising him to apologise before sought after Undertaker, Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov to say sorry.
Here is the full quote:
“It was overseas, we were in Mexico. I believe the main event was Vladimir Kozlov vs. Triple H. It’s like the last night of the tour, so how many times have I seen this match? (laughs) All the boys are sitting, watching the monitor and Hawkins and I are on our phone, Hawkins claimed he was just checking the time in this exact instance. The Undertaker gives the ‘Undertaker head snap’. Basically, you know, ‘disrespectful for being on your phone bla bla’, and he’s pretty pissed. I’m like ‘okay, this is The Undertaker, locker room leader, pissed!
“So afterwards, Mark Henry pulls us aside, he says ‘Go up to Taker, you need to apologise’ and I’m like ‘okay, you’re absolutely right’, so Hawkins and I pull him aside, we apologise and he’s super cool about it. He’s super cool because we were really respectful, but he’s like ‘you really need to apologise to the guys in the main event’, so I’m like ‘okay so we’ll apologise to Vladimir Kozlov’, I don’t even know if we did. Maybe we did but he doesn’t know what’s going on, we love Oleg, Oleg’s the best, one of our friends from the deep south.
“So Triple H, I’ll never forget, he’s in like a private dressing room and we’re like (mimes knocking at door) ‘excuse me, Triple H? we were on our cell phones during your match, we’re very sorry, it was disrespectful’ or whatever we said. He played it off like he didn’t care but I was like ‘oh man’. This happened when The Edgeheads were not with Edge anymore, it was like the beginning of the end, so I’m not sure that did us any favours.”
