It's no secret that Eric was a HUGE wrestling fan growing up. One of his favorite wrestlers is STILL going at it today and just happens to be the spookiest of them all, The Undertaker!
Early in his WWF career, Taker was "killed" by Yokozuna, but he promised his spirit would live on and that The Undertaker would return and be "reborn". Fans waited, but for months there was no sign Taker. The Million Dollar Man, Ted Debiase, said, using his millions, he could buy The Undertaker and fans were shocked when he showed up with "the dead man".
But The Undertaker's manager, Paul Bearer, cried foul and said Debiase's Undertaker was nothing but an UnderFAKEr!
And so the match was set: at SummerSlam 1994, The Undertaker would battle...The Undertaker?!?!
This controversial match has been the subject of debate for the past 25 years, and many fans agree it my be the worst storyline Taker was ever involved in...but are they right?
Tonight, Eric and his guest Tyler Clapp re-examine this classic tale and break kayfabe to tell you what was going on behind the scenes of Undertaker vs Underfaker!
