Rey Mysterio Recalls Injuring The Undertaker In Their First-Ever Match

WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio spoke with Rampage Jackson on an episode of the Jaxxon podcast on a number of topics including how he accidentally injured fellow WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker in their first-ever match.

Mysterio said, “The first time I wrestled him I ended up breaking his orbital socket. I was scared s**tless. I do this move where I spring on the top rope and I jump and I pretty much sit on your chest and bring you down. I think what happened is when I sat down and we both fell, my ass went like this and it pushed up against his face… Being the first time stepping in the ring with him … you just, as a legend that he is, I just wanted to make sure that my work was good enough to please him to say, ‘Hey, let me work with him again,’ and I wanted to make sure that I didn’t hurt [him] because that’s we [do]. Protect each other, we gotta feed, we gotta fight, we got to live to fight another day and we got to make sure we’re good.”

On The Undertaker’s in-ring ability:

“One of the best. I had the opportunity to step in the ring with him a couple times and [he was a] true professional.”.. You think of these little factors that make a huge difference — timing, sequence, psychology-wise. Especially working with a guy like me, size difference, what can we do that makes sense that the fans can perceive as, ‘Oh, wow he really knocked him on his ass.’ Little things like that and he was just very good at putting pieces together.”
