• The Undertaker Recalls Hilarious Moment From RAW 1000
During an interview on Dallas Morning News, WWF Legend The Undertaker recalled returning for RAW 1000 in 2012 and having trouble taking off his coat on live TV.
Below is the story:
“I had this coat made for WrestleMania (28), it was unbelievable, it was one of the hooded ones. I didn’t wear a hat so I wore the hooded one. The thing has got these huge spines on it, it was one of the really cool coats that I had.
At WrestleMania, I wore it, the thing, it came off perfectly, it just slipped right down off my back. It was flawless, thank goodness.
A couple of months later they were about to have the 1000th episode of RAW. They called me and said, ‘Hey, would you come do the 1000th episode of RAW, it’ll be you and Kane going against two guys, need you to go out there, pretty much crush them, do a little Brothers Of Destruction, and that’s it.’
I was like, ‘sure, absolutely.’ So, I said, ‘I’m going to wear that coat again,’ I hadn’t worn it since.
Our opponents made their entrance, Kane makes his entrance, I make my entrance. As I go to take my coat off, the coat folds. It basically gets stuck on my mitts, my MMA mitts.
The more I tug to try get out of them, the tighter it gets. Because the leather on this coat was really thick. I can’t get out of this coat, right? It’s Monday Night RAW, it’s live TV.”
Undertaker also discussed this on WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures. You can watch the footage of this below:
