• WWE Hall Of Famer Says The Undertaker Botched His 1st Ever Tombstone Piledriver & Almost Broke His Neck

During a recent appearance on ‘Why it Ended’ podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Koko B.Ware talked about being on the receiving end of The Undertaker’s first ever Tombstone Piledriver at WWF Survivor Series 1990 PPV.

Koko talked about how it was a new move for the 25 year old Undertaker back in 1990 and he botched it as his head hit the canvas (but no serious damage was done).

Below is what Koko said:

“I love Mark to death, and I’m still proud of The Undertaker today. He really, really has taken his gimmick a long, long way. But Mark was, you know. I was the first one to take the tombstone, but he was a little excited because that was his first time doing it, and I almost kind of cracked my neck a little bit doing it. And I heard all kind of little cracks and stuff like that.

But I knew Mark was trying to get over… I got dropped on my head, to be honest with you. Yes. But thank God for working out, it kind of helps you. Now, if I had a weak head or something like that, I probably would have broke my neck big time. I was the first one that he used it on.

We didn’t practice, he just said hey. They wanted him to do it. It was kind of like a piledriver, but he just had my head between his legs too far that you could see my head, and if he would have had my head between the fat part of his thighs, then it wouldn’t have hurt.”
