The Undertaker discussed a memorable wrestler’s court story involving Dustin Rhodes during a recent edition of Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.
Here is what he had to say:
“So, the two guys at the bar were Ron Simmons and JBL. And the guy coming up was Dustin Rhodes. And he learned his lesson and was great after that. That’s the example of how wrestler’s court can help you because he could’ve kept doing that and that could’ve kept – Ron and John were not two guys you wanted to piss off. Message received, either if I take the shots I’m gonna drink it but I’m not gonna throw it on the floor and waste these guys’ money. That was the gist of the whole thing, as simple as that sounds.
“But it all sends a message that we’re all in this together, we’re all struggling, and this is hard-earned money and we’re trying to have a good time in the midst of getting our asses kicked in the ratings and everything else. Comradery is very important, especially in those kinds of times. You’ve gotta be a tight unit to be able to persevere through the struggles that you’re going through. When you got two guys on one page, and somebody else throwing shots over their shoulder – it was bad for the time. But Dustin more than paid his fine and definitely got back in the good graces of everybody and obviously is a legend in our business as well.”
