• Former WWF Champion Claims A Chokeslam From The Undertaker Caused Internal Bleeding
On the newest episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, former WWF Champion Mick Foley talked about the Survivor Series 1996 PPV, where he was defeated by The Undertaker, while Paul Bearer was suspended in a shark cage above the ring.
Mick – then known as Mankind – spoke about how it feels to receive one of The Undertaker’s signature moves – Chokeslam.
Here’s what the 2013 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I didn’t hate it, the Chokeslam was difficult, because unlike say, like a Suplex, you are absorbing that impact from your shoulders all the way down your lower back, through the buttocks and your feet, right.
A Chokeslam basically, you’re taking all the impact on, you know, a small section of your back, especially in the old WWE rings before they changed them a few months after the sell.
Just taking a Chokeslam, if you land on one side or the other just slightly, you would feel it for a few days.”
Foley then talked about a different occasion, where a Chokeslam from The Deadman allegedly caused internal bleeding.
Here’s what he said:
“I remember wrestling The Undertaker in Fayetteville, North Carolina, just a regular Chokeslam which was not the finish, we went a few minutes more, but I can feel this internal bleeding coming up. And I finished the last couple of minutes looking like Dizzy Gillespie on a hot trumpet solo, you know, because my mouth was just full of internal blood.
I made it back to the dressing room. I knew enough, I knew WWF frowned on, you know the blood at that time. Made it back to the dressing room and just spewed blood everywhere, just from a simple Chokeslam.
That’s not a Chokeslam on the ramp or anything of that nature. But that’s the answer. That’s a tough one to take because if you take it wrong, you’re gonna pay for it for a few days.”
