The Undertaker Admits One WWE Star Even Worse Than Great Khali

Great Khali The Undertaker WWE

The Undertaker has had his fair share of tough opponents over the years and names one he rates worse than WWE Hall of Famer, The Great Khali.

The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak became the stuff of legend over the decades as he made it to 21 matches undefeated at WWE’s showpiece event before he came up against Brock Lesnar in 2014.

While The Undertaker’s matches became one of the highlights every year at WrestleMania, that wasn’t always the case. In 1993, The Deadman had his WrestleMania rock bottom when he came up against the monstrous Giant Gonzalez.

The Undertaker No Fan Of Giant Gonzalez Match

Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker detailed his struggles in working with the massive Gonzalez and said he made The Great Khali look like a technical master in the ring:

I should have been in the ring with Yoko. Instead, I’m riding out on a chariot with a big black vulture. That big black vulture was there to pick the bones of that sorry match. It’s amazing I survived the early years of my career. The opponents…I’m not going to name names, but I’ll name that one because I’ve talked about it a lot and he’s deceased anyway. Giant Gonzalez, wow. He made Khali look like Lou Thesz.

It was such a struggle. It wasn’t his fault. It was what it was. You can only do what you can do. On paper, what a viable threat to the Undertaker. He’s a foot taller than me. He was damn near 7 foot 8 and had the muscle suit with the fur.

Once I was done, I was done. ‘I need to have some cold beverages and try to wash this out of my memory.’ They were awful. I don’t think I had one good match with him. I tried. I tried hard. I was trying to make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t.

I was killing myself. He was so limited in what he could do. ‘Just grab me throw me around.’ That was no sell Taker where it was all about the character. I was having to reach the outer banks of (what I could do). ‘Maybe he kicks the sh*t out of me for five or six minutes and we figure a way out of this.’

The Undertaker also admitted he snapped at Giant Gonzalez, laying in some very real shots after growing tired of being smacked in the back of the head.
