Drew McIntyre reveals the pain The Undertaker was in backstage in WWE
In the interview with ViBe & Wrestling, Drew McIntyre said that he noticed Undertaker in pain but even though The Phenom struggled physically, he put on a fantastic show for the fans.
"When he thought he was alone, I could observe just that he was in a lot of physical pain. But he was such a proud man, and he was so proud of at the time – it was kind of Raw versus SmackDown. Still is, but at the time, on the European tours, he was very proud that SmackDown would draw higher numbers than Raw during the international tours. And he kind of led by example, and he would fight through every night no matter what pain he was in. And I caught him a few times like, struggling backstage. But when he was in front of that crowd, you would never know as he was flying around the ring like a cruiserweight, giving everything he had 110 percent every night." (H/T 411Mania)
