The Undertaker ate well when he hid under WWE rings.
Over the course of his legendary career, The Undertaker made many surprise appearances. The lights would go out, and an ominous gong would fill the arena as they returned, only for a hapless star to find themselves face-to-face with The Deadman. Undertaker’s victims included the likes of CM Punk, Goldberg, and Shawn Michaels.
The logistics of keeping Undertaker hidden from the audience before his shock entrance meant that he would be stuck under the ring for hours waiting for his moment. Happily for The Phenom, he wasn’t left to starve during his time there, in fact WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg has revealed that he was well taken care of.
On a recent edition of his podcast, ‘Oh, You Didn’t Know?’, the DX member recalled that Undertaker had good food “laid out for him.”
“They used to hide Undertaker under the ring a lot… They used to lay out food under there for him. And I mean like good food, you know what I mean?”
When Bray Wyatt began making similar appearances, Road Dogg saw he was being given sandwiches, and pointed out that Undertaker had been getting steak when he did it.
“Then Bray Wyatt started doing it… They were just putting sandwiches under there, and I said, ‘Dude, you gotta talk to them to get that Undertaker menu. ‘Taker’s getting steaks.'”
Vince McMahon Cancelled Plans To Meet The Undertaker
Before his steak-eating days under the ring, Mark Calaway was wrestling in WCW as ‘Mean Mark.’ It was in 1990 that he decided a change was needed, and began reaching out to WWE.
Recently, The Undertaker found out the real reason Vince McMahon canceled a meeting with him before he joined the company.
While he was originally told it was due to McMahon having to attend Brutus Beefcake after a parasailing accident, it turned out that McMahon was simply not a fan of his work. However, Undertaker was able to win McMahon round when they did eventually meet and the rest is history.
