The Undertaker has gone through various changes over the course of his career and fans have seen him at his most disturbing during his time as part of The Ministry of Darkness. Now it appears an ex-WWE star was high on narcotics during a controversial Undertaker segment.
Back in 1998, Mideon joined The Ministry of Darkness, which was led by The Undertaker. The Ministry also featured Steve Austin, The Acolytes, Viscera and The Brood, and Undertaker and Paul Bearer.
During the storyline, The Undertaker abducted and attempted to marry Stephanie McMahon in the famous ‘Black Wedding’ segment. However, with Stephanie attached to a cross in the ring, Steve Austin finally saved her and attacked the Ministry members with a chair.
While speaking on Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Mideon talked about the aforementioned segment and revealed that he was high on narcotics during the whole thing.
“So we’re in the back. And Brian was going, him and Tracy were fighting about something. And he throws his phone like towards the wall like he did all the time old phones were indestructible. And I literally stuck my hand out and caught it. And he grabbed it out of my hand and throws it on the ground.
And then we had these sweet tarts that had LSD dropped on them yeah, of course we did. Brian was so mad. He wasn’t working or something that he starts taking them. And another one and another. I’m like Brian, stop. He goes, if you want me to stop you better take them then, and I was like, f*ck, so I’m like, okay.
We’re doing the Minsistry thing and all we’re doing is carrying Stephanie McMahon, I don’t know if you have heard of it. And before this we walk through it and boom and then Stone Cold is gonna hit the ring. We’re all gonna powder. Who’s gonna hit Taker boom, they’re gone. I’m like, Okay, I could probably handle this because I didn’t want him to take like 10 hits of acid. And so I took my boom hits and I’m like, okay, so we go out there and then I’m like I thought we’re gonna carry her out to the ring, get out of there and no problem.
So Vince walks us all through and Austin goes we’re you know, what would be cool is if I hit the ring, I knock the other guys everybody takes the powder. You and me trade boom. And then I go to Taker, he peels off outside, you spin around. I go at you again. I hit you with a chair. You go down, I stun you blah blah blah and it’s just starting to kick in. And I’m like, okay. So I did the Stephanie McMahon marriage to Undertaker, headful of acid and didn’t miss a beat.”
The segment will forever be remembered for being one of the most controversial and shocking things WWE has ever produced and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
