More on Undertaker’s Pyro Accident from the Elimination Chamber


– As previously reported, there was talk of having Shawn Michaels take responsibility for the pyrotechnics incident that happened at the Elimination Chamber PPV. The decision was made prior to RAW, and that idea was shot down ultimately.

One of the key things in the decision making was going to be based off how their camera angles had the incident, if it came off impressive, the idea would have been used on TV.

Undertaker had first and second degree burns on his chest and neck. Those within WWE consider him very lucky, having escaped with the burns he had, as opposed to how badly it could have been.

Despite the burns, Undertaker continued to work through the match in tremendous pain, and even refused to shorten the match. The sleeve of his jacket and part of his hand had melted when the pyro went off prematurely.

    maybe he really is immortal lol

    Human skin can melt. It’s not that far fetched that parts of the skin on his hands could have done so.

    undertaker is a pro and its for things like this he is able to take months off.

  • Gimmick Guy

    U see girls; thats why Taker is a locker room judge.

    Probably his glove. Some editing would be good.

    That aside, getting torched, having part of your glove(presumably) melt while ON your body, and then wrestling an entire match anyway ,despite the fact that your body is in serious need of recuperation and/or surgery… that’s major hardcore. Anyone that can go through all of that, IS a total badass and deserving of respect.

    Dude…..hand melting or not, Taker is a consummate pro and a total bad ass. To wrestle an entire match in pain (much like he did the HIAC against Mankind, with a broken foot), how many other wrestlers would do that?

  • Logan

    lol @ Larry

    I thought the same thing

  • Larry

    Part of his hand melted. Yeah. Sure. Come on, look at what you write before you post it.
