• Former WWE Wrestler Recalls Undertaker’s Reaction To Him Sleeping Under The Ring During Their Match
While speaking to Instinct Culture, former WWE wrestler Hornswoggle revealed the night he was found sleeping under the ring during a match because he had too many drinks.
Here is what happened when Fit Finlay found him there:
“The night before I was a little over served on the tour, I had a few too many and I was sleeping under the ring and I am laying face down. Finlay lifts the apron and just sees me laying face down, he thought I got knocked out from one of the beams, nope I was just sleeping.
He goes, ‘Hey! Wake up!’ I wake up, I look at him, and he goes, ‘what are you doing?’ and he throws me in [the ring] and now I realize ‘Oh shoot, I just missed my cue. And The Undertaker is above me.‘
He throws me into the ring and the whole time I am going, ‘I am so sorry, I am so sorry, I am so sorry, I am so sorry.’ [laughs]…but [Undertaker] gets to the back and goes ‘what happened?’ and I go ‘I fell asleep’ and he goes, ‘You fell asleep!?’
It’s one of those things we look back on and we laugh about so much now because just everything leading up to it was awesome. It’s one of those cool moments, I will never forget.”
