The Undertaker has apparently wrestled his last match. The Deadman persona is supposedly gone, and new stories can be told about the man behind the famous gimmick.
During a recent episode of Table Talk, D-Von Dudley told a story about The Undertaker. Not many people got to witness The Deadman break out of his character back in the day. It turns out all it took to bring out Mark Calaway was playing Carl Douglas’ classic song Kung Fu Fighting.
“It was WrestleMania in Toronto and me and Taker we were at Planet Hollywood in Toronto I’ll never forget. We’re just shooting the stuff and talking the whole nine and all of a sudden, the beginning of the song “Kung Fu Fighting” came on, but the beginning of the song when the “oh oh oh oh” comes on and all of a sudden we’re talking and he hears that and he stops. I’m in the middle of saying something and he just stops.”
D-Von thought he messed up with The Undertaker and said something he wasn’t supposed to. Then Taker eased his mind in a very interesting way. He also put on one heck of a show inside Planet Hollywood.
“I looked at [Taker’s] ex, I looked at Sara and was like ‘I think I might’ve messed up,’ and she looked at me and she looked at him and all of a sudden when that part comes on ‘Everybody was kung fu fighting’ he just broke out and stood up in the middle of the restaurant and went ‘uh uh uh uh uh!’ [while doing kung fu moves] and we were just like ‘what the hell?’ He was like, ‘yeah, I love that song.'”
The Undertaker is a very complex individual. Perhaps now that he is retired fans will be able to learn more about the man behind the mystique. We might even find out other songs that are sure to make The Undertaker rise from his seat to cut a few dance moves.
