The Undertaker was a locker room leader in WWE for years, and he knows the backstage culture well. He also realizes that sometimes pranks can go too far.
The Deadman was also judge of Wrestlers’ Court during his time as a locker room leader. He opened up about that like never before in a recent interview as well.
While speaking to Hot Ones, The Undertaker was asked about the craziest backstage ribs he ever witnessed. He didn’t go into specifics, but apparently, Mr. Fuji was one to convince guys that they shouldn’t have messed with him.
“There’s a level to pranksters. You got to put Curt Hennig up there as an all-time classic ribber. Then you got the kind of ribs that will start fights. Like Mr. Fuji, guys try to rib him back and it escalates and then guys are like ‘I’ve made a bad mistake because there’s an animal’s head in my gear bag now.’ I mean, I won’t get into details, but there were some stories that if regular people heard them they’d be appalled. Owen Hart, god rest his soul, what a ribber Owen Hart was.”
We’ve also heard stories of people defecating in gym bags and lunches. Some of the people who perpetrated those acts have come forward (X-Pac), but a lot of those more intense backstage pranks will forever be tucked away in the minds of those who witnessed them in the locker room.
