• Vince Russo On The Undertaker Collapsing Backstage: “He worked some of his most epic matches in intense pain and you would never know it”

During an interview on SK Wrestling’s The Wrestling Outlaws podcast, former WWF/WCW writer Vince Russo talked about working with WWE Hall Of Famer The Undertaker.

Russo noted that he was amazed at how The Deadman could work hurt and never show it on TV.

Below is what the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:

“It was awesome working with [The Undertaker]. Probably, more of my communication was with Paul Bearer because he did the talking. Taker was a man of few words.

He worked some of his most epic matches in intense pain, and he never sold it, and you would never know it.

Here’s how I would see it. If it was a main event and it was last, and everybody left the building, he would come to the back and just sneak away into one of the locker rooms and collapse.

Francois and the guys who worked with him were on him immediately, working on his back because he was in intense pain.

I remember so many times standing there, seeing it, and thinking, ‘How did he just have that freaking match?’ How did he physically do what he just did? That was the thing, if he never sold it, you would never know it unless you hung around and saw the type of he worked in a lot.”
