The Undertaker was one of the most dominant and feared superstars in WWE history, but even the Deadman has his fears. With his supernatural-like appearance and talent for cramming his victims into caskets, he terrified his opponents. However, the Undertaker had a phobia of his own in real life. His wife Michelle McCool has recently shed some light on why her American Badass husband is so afraid of cucumbers.
The Undertaker’s wife, Michelle McCool appeared on the new episode of “The Wives of Wrestling Podcast” to discuss their home life with the Phenom. Undertaker’s fear of cucumbers has been well chronicled, and McCool provided some insight into how this phobia developed.
“We can’t even have one in the room.
Every birthday, [daughter] 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. And ever since then, it was just game over.”
It’s no wonder that the Deadman grew emotionally toughened by his experiences in WWE, with his long career as such a dark, mysterious persona. This carried over into his relationship with Michelle, where they are both learning how to deal with emotions as they emerge, as many couples do.
“We both hold everything in, for one. We’re both very stubborn, but as far as the two of us, I know how he feels, he knows how I feel. I would say I’m a little more ‘wear my heart on my sleeve’ than he is. He’s had thirty years of protecting his whole outer shell, so I think it kind of carries over a little bit.”
This year’s WWE Hall of Fame class featured The Undertaker as the headlining inductee. At the event, the former seven-time world champion reflected on his incredible career while also teasing that supporters should “never say never” about one final showdown.
