Reason The Undertaker is afraid of cucumbers

Last updated

The Undertaker is one of the most legendary wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the ring. Not only was he a fierce opponent for any talent inside the squared circle, but he was also one of the most respected names outside of it. It’s because of this quality that he was the locker room leader during his time in WWE. Despite all these qualities, one bizarre fact about the dead man is that he is afraid of cucumbers.

Taker’s wife and former WWE star Michelle McCool recently appeared on Wives of Wrestling podcast (H/t Sportskeeda). She talked about this unique phobia of the legendary wrestler and revealed that it all started when he got sick one time:

‘We can’t even have one in the room. Every birthday, [their 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.’

The Undertaker was inducted into Hall of Fame during the WrestleMania week this year. He also made an appearance on the PPV but didn’t participate in any match.
