The Undertaker Went Off Script Attacking Terry Funk During Iconic Hell In A Cell Match With Mankind

The Undertaker came up with part of the iconic match on the fly.

The Phenom appeared during a recent episode of Complex’s sneaker shopping series. The Deadman revealed that he was not originally supposed to attack Funk at all.

“It’s just one of those things that happened. Obviously everyone was really concerned for Mankind going through there [the cell]. He was inches away from probably not getting up from that, so that’s why that all just happened [unplanned].

I don’t know what kind of shape Mick’s in, right?” The Undertaker continued. “But then again you just can’t stand there and look around, so there’s a wrestler in the ring, somebody’s gotta get it! Somebody’s gonna get Chokeslammed, and Terry Funk, he was the recipient. Up he went and there’s the shoe. It’s funny that something the stature of that match, what an iconic moment of Terry Funk losing his shoe to a Chokeslam!”
