The Undertaker has revealed which WWE Hall of Famer terrified him during a youthful encounter at a wrestling show.
Speaking Mike Tyson on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, The Dead Man revealed that the original Sheik put a swift end to his youthful bravado at a wrestling show.
The Sheik, not to be confused with The Iron Sheik, was a two-time WWWF United States Heavyweight Champion and was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007.
Undertaker would recall their encounter, saying:
“He scared the sh*t out of me when I was a little kid (…) I don’t know, I was maybe 10 or 11 years old. I was living in Houston, Texas.
“My mom had got some tickets and The Sheik was coming in to work with somebody. I don’t remember who he was gonna wrestle.
“Me and my buddy across the street, we were talking mad like, ‘When The Sheik comes down to the ring, we’re gonna jump on the barricade and we’re gonna say this.’”
Things would turn out slightly different from the hopping-the-barricade bad-mouthing that he and his friend had planned, with Undertaker adding:
“We got ourselves all psyched up. We’re out there, we’re out on the rail, they’re about to come down. We start yelling at him and he makes just a lunge at us.
“We damn near took out the whole row trying to run because we thought The Sheik was gonna get us, man. We wiped out this old lady. We were hauling a** trying to get out the way!”
In the interview, Undertaker would also reveal the lesson another WWE Hall of Famer would teach him during his first wrestling match.
The WWE Hall of Famer has also discussed the “horrible” transition from wrestling to retirement.
And, revealed that Rey Mysterio’s ass has led to ongoing sight issues.
