Rey Mysterio Recalls Being ‘Scared S**tless’ After Causing Injury

Rey Mysterio Recalls Being ‘Scared S**tless’ After Causing Injury WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio has recalled being ‘scared s**tless’ after accidentally injuring a top WWE star.

Rey Mysterio is one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE history, but even he isn’t immune to making mistakes in the ring.

Speaking to Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s JAXXON PODCAST, Rey recalled a match he had with The Undertaker, where he accidentally broke Taker’s orbital socket, leading to him being ‘scared s**tless’.

He said:

“Not to mention that the first time I wrestled him (The Undertaker), I ended up breaking his orbital socket. I was scared sh*tless… I do this move where I spring on the top rope and I jump and I pretty much sit on your chest and bring you down. I think what happened is when I sat down and we both fell, my ass went like this, and it pushed up against his face. I’m not that big. 

“Imagine being the first time you’re stepping in the ring with him, as a legend that he is, I just wanted to make sure that my work was good enough to please him to say, ‘Aye, let me work with him again’ and I wanted to make sure I didn’t hurt. We protect each other. We gotta feed, we gotta fight, we gotta live to fight another day and we gotta make sure we’re good. But with him… I was really tense. That butterfly nervous feeling that I have every time I step in the ring, it was like three times as much working him for the first time. But overall, an incredible person, incredible human being. 

“100 percent (Undertaker knew it was a mistake). No, no, no, no, no (he was not upset) and we worked again a couple times after that too.”
