Rey Mysterio Injured The Undertaker In Their First Match: ‘I Was Scared Sh*tless’

Rey Mysterio feared the worst when he accidentally injured The Undertaker in their first match.

Mysterio has been part of WWE for over two decades. During that time he has wrestled multiple legends. One such legend that he wrestled was The Undertaker. While speaking on the Jaxxon Podcast, Rey Mysterio revealed that he broke the Deadman’s orbital socket in their first match.

The pair were both involved in the 2003 Royal Rumble match, but their first singles match took place on the April 3, 2003 episode of SmackDown.

“Not to mention, the first time I wrestled him [The Undertaker], I ended up breaking his orbital socket. I was scared sh*tless… No… So I do this move where I spring on the top rope and I jump. And I pretty much sit on your chest and bring you down. I think what happened is, when I sat down and we both fell, my ass went like this (scrapped The Undertaker’s face). And it pushed up against his face. I’m not that big… Imagine being the first time stepping in the ring with him. You just… As a legend that he is, I just wanted to make sure that my work was good enough to please him to say, ‘Hey, let me work with him again.’

“And I wanted to make sure that I didn’t hurt, because that’s we… We protect each other. We gotta feed, we gotta fight, we gotta live to fight another day, and we got to make sure we are good. But with him, it was… Like… I was really tense that butterfly-nervous feeling that I had or that I have every time I step in the ring, it was like three times as much, working him for the first time. But overall, an incredible person. Incredible human being… 100% [The Undertaker knew it was a mistake.] No [He wasn’t mad at Rey Mysterio.] And we worked again a couple of times after that,” Rey Mysterio said.

Rey Mysterio have 24 total matches together on record. The last one is a tag team match on a 2010 WWE live event that saw them defeat Alberto Del Rio and Kane.
