The Undertaker battled through everything and left it all inside the squared circle for three decades, which made him one of the greatest WWE superstars of all time. Furthermore, the Deadman has been through nasty injuries in his entire career, but still kept going because of his love for the business. The Phenom has also experienced some injuries during his career, and he recently recalled an injury suffered at the hands of Rey Mysterio back in 2010.

The television audience was made aware of one of The Undertaker’s numerous injuries, an orbital one sustained in 1995 as a result of Mabel. The Deadman spoke about it during an interview with Hawk & Wolf.

“The doctor goes, ‘you’ve lost about 50 percent of your orbital floor.’ ‘Excuse me?’ ‘You need to go home and find an ophthalmologist and a surgeon.’ Come to find out, I ended up losing 90% of my orbital floor. My optic nerve is setting on a jagged piece of bone. If I got hit on the right side of my head again, there is a good chance I would have lost my eye. Took two surgeons, they go in, take out all the bone fragments, and they put in a fake one.”

Due to the injury, Undertaker had to wear a protective mask. This was done as a precautionary measure, otherwise, things could have gone far worse if he had been hit hard before getting a proper diagnosis.


The Undertaker also recalled how Rey Mysterio’s mishap had further harmed his vision. This came during a 2010 edition of SmackDown when the duo battled each other and Rey hit the 619 move on the Deadman.

“Rey Mysterio, tiny guy, sweetheart of a guy, he ended up jumping off the top rope, and his ass was supposed to hit me in the chest, but it hit me right in the face. It was a bony ass. Bony ass, right on the bridge of my nose. He lands, I have all of his weight on my head, I hit the mat and blew out the other one. I broke my nose and I was concussed. It’s hard being injured by an anus. My nose was broke, I fixed my nose right there, I just squeezed my nose back. The second one, to this day and it’s probably been 15 years, I still have double vision.”

The Undertaker came to the conclusion that his vision would have been clear if he looked straight ahead, but it became foggy because he was looking away. Fortunately, The Undertaker managed to continue his career for the next ten years and retired in 2020 at Survivor Series.
