Paul Lazenby Responds to Austin Incident, ‘Taker’s Finisher

Nick Paglino


For those wondering why The Undertaker’s submission finisher is never called by name, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that announcers have been ordered not to call the move the “gogoplata choke,” which is its actual name.

We reported several days ago that Steve Austin and actor Paul Lazenby were involved in an incident on the set of their new film “Damage.” During the filming of a fight sequence, Austin accidentally clipped Lazenby with a left hand that resulted in Lazenby’s nose being busted open. TMZ.com has picked up the story and noted that Lazenby was bleeding from the nose for 20 minutes while medics tended to him. Lazenby has an official website and wrote a blog regarding the incident, saying the issue has since been resolved. “I want to stress that this was NOT a case of negligence or incompetence, just one of those things that can happen even between skilled performers when they’re swinging their fists at one another,” Lazenby wrote. I don’t blame Steve at all, he just made a mistake that even the best stunt performers can make (and one of which I’m certainly not innocent).”
