The Undertaker Finally Explains Bizarre Cucumber Fear

The Undertaker cucumber

The Undertaker is one of WWE’s greatest legends of all time but it would be remiss if he never revealed what lay behind his long-rumoured fear of cucumbers.

Speaking on his Patreon Q&A, The Undertaker answered the one question not involving Batista that wrestling fans have wanted an answer to for years – just why is the giant, powerful Phenom of WWE scared of cucumbers:

Why do you give me some bullsh*t question like that? I don’t even like talking about the cucumbers man.

Alright, here it is. When I was just a wee little Undertaker, like a kindergarten, first grade Undertaker, I come home from school one day. My mother had taken a bunch of fresh cucumbers and cut them up into slices and had them soaking in a big bowl of vinegar. It was that day. [At that time] it was the greatest thing ever.

So I proceeded to eat the whole bowl of cucumbers soaked in vinegar. Well, something about that didn’t settle well with my stomach. Shortly after I ate all of the cucumbers, I expelled all of the contents of my stomach. From that moment on, the smell, for a long time even to see a cucumber I would get somewhat, I wouldn’t say nauseous but queasy. Smell a cucumber? Forget about it. My stomach is just like [nope]…it’s like my mouth starts watering.

So that’s why I hate cucumbers because I ate too many once as a child, left a horrible, horrible scar in my memory of how bad I threw up. How sick that I got. Then just the very smell of a cucumber [made me sick], heaven forbid I taste one.

The Undertaker Does Not Want Cucumber In His Sushi

The Undertaker’s hatred of cucumbers causes him some issues when he goes out for sushi as he specifically requests for them to be omitted from his rolls and promises some drama if he ends up with some:

Let me get one in a bit of sushi or something like that [if] you want to see some drama. Because anytime I go to order sushi, like I’ll ask. If there’s cucumbers that are supposed to be in a roll or [something] I ask specifically ‘Can I get this without the cucumber?’ Usually [it’s] ‘Yeah, that’s no problem.’

Heaven forbid they forget or they screw up and I get cucumber in my mouth. It is not a good day at the sushi restaurant. I will show my ass real quick and I try really hard not to do that. I know people are working hard trying to do things. I am level-headed as I can be, do not put cucumber in my sushi, especially when I make it very clear that I do not want cucumber in my sushi.

The Undertaker also revealed that tomatoes are a no go for him but he will eat ketchup in the right circumstances. The WWE Hall of Famer’s views on pickled onions remain a mystery for now.

Away from the world of fruit and vegetables, The Undertaker recently gave his thoughts on AEW’s booking of Sting and exactly why he was a fan of it.
