WWE Icon The Undertaker Has A Really Strange Phobia, Which Made Him A Target For All Kinds Of Pranks

||


When The Undertaker enters an arena, he sends a cool streak of fear down the back of his most unlucky opponent. He’s known by many names, including “The Demon of Death Valley”, “The Deadman”, and “The American Badass”, among others. This monster who stands almost seven feet tall has dominated the world of professional wrestling for almost three decades. You’d think this unholy man-beast would be fearless…right?

Is The Undertaker afraid of anything? Apparently so…according to his longtime manager Paul Bearer. Before Bearer’s death in 2013, he sat down for an interview to reveal the phobia of his mortal client Mark William Calaway. Here’s what drives Marky Mark (Calaway) over the edge…

“He cannot stand cucumbers… I saw The Undertaker throw up all over a waffle house because there was a cucumber floating in his iced tea.”

“It was something to do with when he was a kid… I guess his mother made him eat them when he didn’t want them, or something.

“He just hates cucumbers.”

Cucumbers? Really? And once Bearer discovered this fear, he’d personally use it against The Undertaker just for laughs. The pale, pudgy manager would drop cucumber slices in ‘Taker’s hats and gloves. The late, great Bearer really had a mischievous side to him…

But Bearer’s pranks absolutely paled in comparison to the pranks of another deceased WWE legend in the form of “The Black Heart” Owen Hart. Owen was absolutely savaged when it came to playing tricks on The Deadman. Long-time WWE official Bruce Prichard talked about Hart’s shenanigans on his “Something to Wrestle” Podcast.

“Owen put cucumbers in the bottom of the iced tea so that when Taker drank the tea and drank it back, he didn’t realize the cucumbers were in there until it was looking at his face.”

Hart routinely slipped cucumber slices in ‘Taker’s boots. He liked the idea of The Deadman freaking out upon finding out that squishy feeling are slices of that dreaded green vegetable. Owen would also hide cucumber slices in The Undertaker’s tights, and then pull them out whenever he had ‘Taker locked in a headlock. Calaway was forced to face his fear whenever he crossed paths with The Black Heart. Owen may have just been The Deanman’s most feared opponent…
