The Undertaker Explains Why Viral WWE Moment Almost Didn’t Happen

The Undertaker Brock Lesnar laughing

The Undertaker has explained how a viral moment with Brock Lesnar in a WWE ring came to be and admits if he’d been paying attention, it wouldn’t have happened.

Brock Lesnar famously ended The Undertaker’s Streak at WrestleMania in 2014 but after spending more than a year gloating about that, it was inevitable that The Conqueror would meet The Deadman again.

At SummerSlam 2015, the two giants of WWE clashed again this time with The Undertaker picking up the win after the referee stopped the bout. While the details of how The Undertaker won might be lost in time, one thing that is very well remembered from that match is the two men sitting up and laughing with one another after beating each other up for quite some time.

The Undertaker Taken Aback By Brock Lesnar’s Laugh

Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on the Insight podcast, The Undertaker discussed the viral moment and admitted if he realised what he was being asked to do, he probably would have turned it down:

That was Brock. So we talked a little bit about that match and he ran it by me but I don’t think I was paying enough attention to what he really wanted to do. So when he did it, I was almost taken aback a little bit like what the freaking hell are you laughing at that? And then it kind of dawned on me what he was doing.

Then I laugh back at him and it’s yeah, it’s become kind of an iconic deal but yeah, if I’d have been paying close enough attention I’d probably go “Yeah, I don’t know if I want to do that.”

But the way it worked, it worked out worked out fine. Fortunately, too it was at the tail end of my career and not in the middle or the front end of it because that surely wouldn’t happen then. But I think for the time period, it worked out okay.

During the interview, The Undertaker also admitted he couldn’t remember his own name after one iconic WWE match as he suffered a serious concussion.
