During a recent edition of The Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer and 6 time WWF Champion “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recalled a moment where The Undertaker showed compassion to him during a match. Below is the story:
“I would say my favorite match with The Undertaker was actually in a small town in Pennsylvania. I had just come back from getting dropped on my head, almost got paralyzed, and they started putting me in some matches after several months of being off. I was in a six-man tag team match, Undertaker, myself, and someone else against three other guys.
I can’t remember who the guys were and I wasn’t really supposed to go out there and take many bumps, but due to the excitement of the crowd, all of the Austin 3:16 shirts, I said, ‘man, I’ve got to go out there and take a bump,’ so I tagged in, ran a highspot, took a couple of bumps, and tagged out.
As the guy went into the ring, I stepped on the apron and The Undertaker looked at me with that look that only he can give and said beneath his breath, ‘what in the hell do you think you’re doing?’ and it was the fact that it was the legendary ‘Deadman’ actually cared that I went in there and I could have potentially been hurt and he showed some compassion for his fellow teammate in the middle of a six-man match in a small town – it may have been Hershey, Pennsylvania. I thought it was awesome and that’s one of the reasons I have so much respect for the guy.”
