• WWF Legend Suffered Internal Bleeding From The Undertaker’s Chokeslam
On an episode of his weekly ‘Foley Is Pod’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend Mick Foley claimed that a Chokeslam by The Undertaker during one of their House Show matches resulted in him having internal bleeding.
Here’s what the 2013 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I remember wrestling The Undertaker in Fayetteville, North Carolina, just a regular Chokeslam, which was not the finish, we went a few minutes more, but I can feel this internal bleeding coming up and I finished the last couple of minutes looking like Dizzy Gillespie on a hot trumpet solo, you know?
My mouth was just full of internal blood. I made it back to the dressing room, went into the sink and just spewed blood everywhere, just from a simple Chokeslam.
The Chokeslam was difficult, because unlike say, a suplex, you are absorbing that impact from your shoulders all the way down your lower back, through the buttocks and your feet.
A Chokeslam, basically, you’re taking all the impact on a small section of your back, especially in the old WWF rings before they changed them a few months after the Hell in a Cell.
Just taking a Chokeslam, if you land on one side or the other just slightly, you would feel it for a few days.”
Mick Foley officially retired in 2000, but returned for several WWE matches in 2004, 2006 & 2007, before working as a color commentator on ‘SmackDown!’ in 2008 and joining Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) from September 2008 till May 2011.
