It was a situation that scared Mysterio. 

One of the newer editions of Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s JAXXON PODCAST features a chat with WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio. 

As the conversation moved along, Mysterio brought up the time when he wrestled The Undertaker and accidentally broke his orbital bone. Undertaker shared in a past media appearance that he suffered a broken nose and concussion in the match as well. Mysterio stated that he was ‘scared sh*tless.’

Not to mention that the first time I wrestled him (The Undertaker), I ended up breaking his orbital socket. I was scared sh*tless… I do this move where I spring on the top rope and I jump and I pretty much sit on your chest and bring you down. I think what happened is when I sat down and we both fell, my ass went like this, and it pushed up against his face. I’m not that big. 

Imagine being the first time you’re stepping in the ring with him, as a legend that he is, I just wanted to make sure that my work was good enough to please him to say, ‘Aye, let me work with him again’ and I wanted to make sure I didn’t hurt. We protect each other. We gotta feed, we gotta fight, we gotta live to fight another day and we gotta make sure we’re good. But with him… I was really tense. That butterfly nervous feeling that I have every time I step in the ring, it was like three times as much working him for the first time. But overall, an incredible person, incredible human being. 

100 percent (Undertaker knew it was a mistake). No, no, no, no, no (he was not upset) and we worked again a couple times after that too.

Present day, Mysterio is a member of the Monday Night Raw roster and he competed in the 2024 King of the Ring tournament. He lost in the first round to Kofi Kingston.
