Undertaker Opponent Feared He’d Die At WWE PPV

WWE fans would certainly remember the famous wrestling spot involving WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi and the wrestling icon The Undertaker.



During  a recent interview on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, the WWE legend Rikishi  opened up about how he was afraid that his legendary fall in the Hell in a Cell Match at Armageddon 2000.

Rikishi reflects on the spot

During the interview, the former Too Cool member revealed the words he said to The Undertaker just before the fall which would certainly give chills to you.

He said:

“All I can say is when you love something, when you’re prepped up for anything the industry throws at you, and the smarts. I knew I wasn’t the person who was going over in that match, but I also knew, what can I do to be able to steal that away and have people years down the line talk about it? No doubt, it was very nerve-wracking. I’ve watched Mick Foley come off the top of the Hell in a Cell. God bless him man, he’s put his body (through) so much for this industry.

He added:

“I always say, in thirty seconds, an accident can happen, and he could have died in any one of those big bumps that he’d taken. So, it was my time… But I never knew that, when my time would come, it would be taking a bump backwards onto a steel flatbed. There’s no rewind from that, Chris. Meaning that, when he grabbed me, my last words to him were “Tell my family I love them.” You know what I mean?”
