The Undertaker sacrificed his body for three decades for the enjoyment of fans and became a living legend. His influence in the pro wrestling industry is unparalleled as well. He also stopped Fit Finlay from a huge confrontation backstage in WWE.
On March 27th, 2008, former WWE star Rory McAllister’s partner attended a live TNA Impact! episode days before WrestleMania 24. This infuriated Fit Finlay, who confronted Robbie when he returned to the WrestleMania hotel.
While speaking on the Cheap Heat Productions Podcast, Rory McAllister revealed that The Undertaker told Finlay to back off and managed to avoid a huge backstage confrontation.
“Fit lost his sh*t. Fit was irate. Obviously, I understand where he’s coming from. He made a lunge and ‘Taker actually stopped him and went, ‘Dave [Fit’s real name], calm the f**k down,’ because Robbie had the balls to do what he did, whether he did it on purpose or not, and I’m almost certain he did, he had the balls to do that and he walked right back into the bar to face the music.
Robbie stood his ground. I’ve punched Robbie in the face before. He can take a shot, and he stood there and took his shot like a man, and I think ‘Taker really respected that from him. He’s like, ‘Fit, calm down, the boy f**ked up, he’ll pay his penalties, now leave him the f**k alone.’”
The Undertaker has also recorded several episodes of his upcoming podcast. He’ll forever be respected no matter what as well. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for The Deadman. His in-ring career might be over, but he still has tons of stories to tell.
