The Undertaker Reveals How Rey Mysterio's Bum Gave Him A Concussion

'It's hard being injured by an anus'

WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker has explained how he suffered a concussion, broken nose and issues with his vision while wrestling Rey Mysterio, all because of an errant move involving the masked man's backside. 

During an appearance on the Hawk vs Wolf podcast, The Deadman first explained how he suffered orbital bone damage during a match with Mabel (AKA Viscera) in 1995: 

"The doctor goes, 'you've lost about 50 percent of your orbital floor'. 'Excuse me?' 'You need to go home and find an ophthalmologist and a surgeon'. Come to find out, I ended up losing 90% of my orbital floor. My optic nerve is setting on a jagged piece of bone. If I got hit on the right side of my head again, there is a good chance I would have lost my eye. Took two surgeons, they go in, take out all the bone fragments, and they put in a fake one," revealed Taker.

Fast forward fifteen years or so, and 'Taker was wrestling Mysterio in a World Heavyweight Title number one contender match on the May 28, 2010 edition of SmackDown. 

When Rey attempted his seated senton move, he ended up doing further damage to his opponent's vision:

"Rey Mysterio, tiny guy, sweetheart of a guy, he ended up jumping off the top rope, and his ass was supposed to hit me in the chest, but it hit me right in the face. It was a bony ass. Bony ass, right on the bridge of my nose. He lands, I have all of his weight on my head, I hit the mat and blew out the other one. I broke my nose and I was concussed. It's hard being injured by an anus. My nose was broke, I fixed my nose right there, I just squeezed my nose back. The second one, to this day and it's probably been 15 years, I still have double vision".

Despite winning the match, The Undertaker couldn't compete for the World Heavyweight Title as planned and ended up taking three months away from the ring to recover.
