The Undertaker Discusses Dangerous Bump In Match With Goldberg: “A Couple Of Inches From Being Catastrophic”


The legendary Undertaker was a recent guest on the Pardon My Take podcast where The Deadman revealed some of the worst bumps he’s taken in his long illustrious career. Taker beings by recalling a matchup with former WWE champion Yokozuna back in the day.

Years ago, I was working Yokozuna. I give him a flying DDT. Yoko, at the time, was closing in at about 600 lbs., his body weight. He hit like a half second before I did on the mat, and it drove up a piece of wood that caught me in the ribs and snapped two of my ribs. That was pretty painful.

He then points out his Saudia Arabia showdown with Goldberg, a bout that will forever be remembered for its sloppy final moments.

The bump that I had in Saudi when I was working with Goldberg, I think that one was a couple of inches from being catastrophic. The way I hit on that one, it kind of set out nerve impulses to all of my injuries at once. It was like an electrical charge went through my body.
