The Undertaker is a WWE veteran who is known worldwide for his ghastly, unnerving persona. Like all veterans, he had to start off as a newbie. Looking back on his days as a newbie, The Undertaker revealed a lesson he learned during his early years in the pro wrestling business.
Appearing on Hotboxin’ with Mike podcast, Undertaker revisited his first pro wrestling match against Bruiser Brody. The WWE Hall of Famer gave potential advice to up comers.
“Don’t judge a book by its cover, and there’s a reason why you’re supposed to sit down, shut up and watch.”
Texas Red was the name that The Undertaker went by back then, with his first match taking place in World Class Championship Wrestling in June 1987. Undertaker talked about how he, in his aggressive youth, would clip Bruise Brody in the face whilst shoving him. This changed the whole trajectory of the match.
“His whole demeanor changed on me.”
The Phenom then went on to talk about how he was stuck in an armbar which would then see him guide Brody to the ropes, calling for a clothesline. While expecting a clothesline, Texas Red was surprised with a big boot, which taught him a lesson that he remembers to this date.
“Holy sh*t, I’m in a whole different world now. It was time for me to get my first lessons and don’t f*ck with the old guys.”
Despite the in-ring error, Texas Red was kept on WCCW courtesy of Bruiser Brody. The latter was quite impressed with his performance in the ring. For more updates stay tuned to Ringside News.
