WWF Jobber Marty Garner was injured in a match with Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Triple H) during the May 28th 1996 TV-Tapings for WWF Superstars, when he took Hunter’s Pedigree finisher the wrong way.

Garner jumped up, like you have to do for a powerbomb for example, but that led to him bumping head first into the mat, which can cause severe damage to the neck.

During a recent interview with Fightful, the former WWF enhancement talent revealed what happened that made him take the move the wrong way.

Here’s what Marty Garner had to say:

“Hunter was new there, and I was new there. I didn’t want to tell him that I didn’t know what the Pedigree was.

I had no idea what the Pedigree was, and when he said ‘Are you good with taking the Pedigree?’. I said ‘Oh yeah. Sure, man’.

When he locked me into it, it felt like it was going to be a powerbomb because he put my head between his legs. I’m like ‘Okay, I’m going to kick hard’.

I didn’t think it was a piledriver, but I didn’t really know what it was. I should’ve probably asked, looking back. It made for a good picture and it showed up in a few magazines.

A few years later it showed up again in a magazine, Triple H came up to me and goes ‘this picture is making its rounds’. ‘Yeah, it is’.

I never get any autographs from anybody, I never get anybody to sign anything, but I did get him to sign a picture of me in the air with him doing what looked like a double-underhook piledriver.

I have a picture of that signed. Of all the people, everywhere I’ve been and all the movie stars and people I’ve met, that’s the only autograph I’ve ever gotten.”
