The Undertaker will forever be regarded as a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His contributions to the business will never be forgotten as he has given 30 years of his life and sacrificed his body. It seems he also pulled a hilarious prank on Paul Wight.
The Deadman has squared off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer and that also includes veterans such as Paul Wight, who was known as The Big Show in WWE.
While speaking during the Steel City Con, WWE Hall Of Famer JBL talked about a hilarious prank the Undertaker pulled on the Big Show. The Undertaker replaced Big Show’s theme with Shrek’s theme from the film.
“We were in Europe and I was in the ring and somebody (The Undertaker) – I’m not going to say who, it could have been his (Kane) brother – had an idea, when Big Show came out, they would stop his music and play Shrek’s theme music. So I’m in the ring for a triple threat match with Kurt Angle and Kurt’s not in on it. The Deadman was by the music booth arranging it and when Big Show hears the music, he turns around, and his face is red. It’s like a giant red tomato, like a 540-pound red tomato.
And Kurt Angle goes, ‘What is that?’ I go, ‘Shrek’s theme music.’ And he goes, ‘Oh, my God, he’s going to kill us.’ ‘Listen, I did it, I’m going to take the blame for it.’ He goes, ‘Thank god.’ Big Show gets in the ring and I say, ‘I swear to god Kurt Angle did it and I had nothing to do with it.”
We’re not sure if “Shrek’s theme music” is All Star by Smash Mouth, but we can only hope that was the case.
The Undertaker also recently revealed how many surgeries he needed throughout his career. He has been enjoying his life in retirement since then but had also mentioned earlier that he wanted to mentor young WWE talents. We will have to see what is next in store for the Phenom.
