WWE Superstar Mark William Calaway aka The Undertaker has been part of the wrestling world for the past 30 years. Throughout his career, The Undertaker always kept his personal life and even his personal views tightly wrapped. However, in the last few months, he has opened up about his life like never before. With the nature of their profession, wrestlers don’t have much in common with each other, and during their latest interview with ESPN, The Deadman opened up about one such feud.
During the conversation, he detailed his backstage beef with Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, and accused him of lying about his infamous neck injury. Back in 1991, The Undertaker ruthlessly defeated Hogan to win his first WWE Championship. After losing, Hogan claimed that he had seriously injured his neck during the match. However, after all these years, The Undertaker revealed that Hulk had lied about the injury. He mentions that after he claimed, The Undertaker re-watched the match and realized that Hulk never hit his head. He said, “I was like, ‘Terry, I watched it back, your head never hit!’ He’s like, ‘Brother, what it was is you had me so tight, that when we came down, I had nowhere to move, and that’s what jammed my neck. I couldn’t move at all.’ At that point, then I was like, ‘Okay,’ I kind of realized I know what you’re all about, and that’s all I needed,”
When Hogan returned to the WWE Wrestling Ring in 2002 after spending 6 years at WCW, The Undertaker greeted him, but he was never friendly. He mentioned that he would always greet them and engage them in conversation, but the enmity always persisted.
