Undertaker is afraid of cucumbers

If you look on YouTube you can have a good laugh at cats freaking out when they see a cucumber. While everyone knows cats are afraid of cucumbers, What you might not know is WWE hall of famer, The Undertaker has a cucumber phobia. Mark Callaway’s wife Michelle McCool was on “The Wives of Wrestling Podcast”, McCool talked about there daughter messing with her dad. “Every birthday, Kaia gets cucumbers. She’ll like put them under his pillow, she’ll put them in his car. Cucumbers, he can’t even smell them … can’t even be around it.” He ate so many cucumbers one day that he got sick,” she explains. “And ever since then, it was just game over.” Undertaker shared on Big cats Pardon My Take podcast, “I’ll probably leave the room. I’m not gonna run,” Undertaker joked. “If they’re whole, that’s one thing. If they’re cut up, whew.” The late Paul Bearer confirmed this in 2013.

“He cannot stand cucumbers… I saw The Undertaker throw up all over a waffle house because there was a cucumber floating in his iced tea,” Bruce Prichard also talked about it on his “Something To Wrestle With” podcast. The late great Owen Hart was infamous for his backstage pranks. Pritchard said

“Owen put cucumbers in the bottom of the iced tea so that when Taker drank the tea and drank it back, he didn’t realize the cucumbers were in there until it was looking at his face,” Something To Wrestle With” co-host Conrad Thompson shared a couple rumors he’d heard, Owen slipped cucumbers into Taker’s boots so they’d squish into his feet. He also would go out to wrestle Undertaker with cucumber slices concealed in his tights. He would then put Undertaker in a headlock and put those cucumbers in Taker’s face to try and make him break character.
