The Undertaker has been one of the most respected professional wrestling personalities of all time. Recently, former WWE Superstar recalled an incident that led him to believe he would be fired from the company after almost missing a spot with the Deadman.
In 2006, the WWE Universe witnessed the debut of Hornswoggle for the first time. Swoggle went on to win the Cruiserweight title and worked with the company for over a decade.
During his tenure with the company, he got to work with several legends in the industry, including The Undertaker. Speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Swoggle revealed how he once slept under the ring and almost missed a spot with Taker:
“We get to the back and Undertaker asks, 'where were you?; I said, 'I was sleeping.' He goes, 'where were you?' I said, 'I was sleeping.' He goes, 'holysh*t', and he just walks off. I go, 'oh I'm dead. I'm done, I'm done. This is it, it's been a good run.' It's been a good two years at that point. Did a lot of fun things. But I'm done. And he just couldn't believe it. And so I graced him with a bottle of brown liquid as an apology gift." [H/T - CVV]
Luckily, Taker accepted Swoggle's apology and the former Cruiserweight Champion was not fired for almost missing his spot.
