Undertaker ‘Struggles’ On WWE Plane Revealed

The Undertaker is one of the greatest stars to ever grace the squared circle and has been a locker room leader. He has been a dominant force inside the ring but he is a different person altogether outside of it. It has been recently revealed by WWE Hall of Famer JBL that ‘The Phenom’ did a selfless act that helped the WWE members.



JBL opens up on The Undertaker

The Undertaker once traveled from England to America with a severe ear injury because he wanted his fellow stars to return home on time. It was revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin had injured Taker’s ear during a match at the Insurrextion pay-per-view in London in May 2001. If The Deadman wanted immediate hospital treatment, the rest of the WWE crew would have been held up in England for an extra day. Thereby, he came up with a generous gesture.

John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) spoke about the incident on the latest episode of his Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw podcast. The WWE Hall of Famer said his friend’s unselfish actions proved why he is regarded as a locker room leader:

“If he did [go to hospital], we were gonna miss the charter window to get back to the States, and so he got all fixed up, and they kind of sedated him a little bit. He got on the plane, flew home, went back across the ocean so that he could have surgery – it had to have been killing him – just so the rest of the crew didn’t have to spend the night,” stated JBL.

The Undertaker is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year and is so far the only individual inductee into the WWE’s 2022 Hall of Fame Class. The Undertaker is a four-time WWE Champion and a three-time World Heavyweight Champion.
