The Undertaker talks on worst injury of his career

The Undertaker recalled his worst injury that occurred in 1995 when he tore his groin during a match against Viscera at No Mercy. During an interview on the Hawk vs Wolf Clip YouTube channel, he said, “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.”

He also added, “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.”

This injury was so severe that it required surgery and kept him out of action for nearly a year. The Undertaker underwent intensive physical therapy and eventually made a full recovery, although it did affect his in-ring mobility for some time. This injury was a major setback for The Undertaker’s career, but it also showed his dedication and resilience as he worked hard to return to the ring stronger than ever.
