• The Undertaker Reveals The Mistakes He Made In His Debut Match Against Bruiser Brody

During the premiere episode of Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network, The Undertaker talked about making his Pro-Wrestling in-ring debut against Bruiser Brody.

Taker noted that he made some rookie mistakes in the match and below is what he said:

“My first match is against Bruiser Brody. My skill level, I mean I’m greener than sh*t, but I get in the ring and that ‘stupid gene’ flips in the back of your head and I’m looking at him going, ‘I’m bigger than he is.’

So ding, ding, ding and we tie up and as soon as we tie up I’m pushing and he’s like ‘Okay, lighten up, kid’ so I’m gonna give him the push-off and when I do I kinda push off and I flick him in the chin a little bit.

We tie up again, boom. I grab an arm, so I’m standing there with a standing arm bar, I just grabbed it, right? I don’t know how I got so stupid… really. So he’s about to shoot me off, and I yell: ‘clothesline’ — Now I’m calling the match!

No I got no brains, off he comes, right, and man I’m wound up and that furry boot comes up and wham my eyes roll back to the back of my head and I’m like, ‘Oh, wow, okay.’”
