• The Undertaker Admits Lying To Shawn Michaels About Controversial Plan He Had At WrestleMania 14
The Undertaker was the latest guest on WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions podcast, where he recalled waiting in the Gorilla position at WrestleMania 14 to beat down Shawn Michaels if he didn’t drop the WWF Championship to Austin that night.
Below is what he said:
“Shawn was not in a good place, mentally or physically. I don’t think he was excited because you were on fire. Rumor has it; we didn’t know if Shawn was going to do business. I’d been there [in the WWF] a long time. I came in when business was good, and I suffered through when business was bad.
I determined, ‘what if he decides to do something silly.’ I worked with Kane that night, but this was foremost on my mind. It was a vital part of our success story; the transfer of the Title because he was going away. I sat in Gorilla, watched the whole match. It sounds over the top, but I had taped my hands up.
If Shawn had not done business, there would have been an appearance by The Undertaker that night. Somehow or another, that belt was going to get switched, and I was going to do what I had to do to make sure that happened because there was so much riding on that. If it meant me ‘thumping him up’ and throwing him back in the ring, that’s what was going to happen.”
Taker then noted that he denied making such plans when HBK asked him about it.
“Shawn and I are close now, and he approached me about that story, and I felt bad because our relationship had progressed so far, and he’s somebody that I have a tremendous amount of professional history with. He asked me about the story, ‘Were you really going to beat me up?’ I was like, ‘Nahhhh’. I blew it off.
He goes, ‘I didn’t think so, it didn’t sound like you, to go through the theatrics of wrapping your fists and everything.’ I totally lied through my teeth to him because I felt bad. I care so much for him now, but that night, I was going to do what needed to be done to make sure you walked out with the Title.”
