AEW’s Evil Uno has recalled “sh*tting himself” during a wrestling match, acknowledging the incident as one of the most humiliating experiences of his life.
In pro wrestling, anything can happen, but defecating yourself during an in-ring performance isn’t something that immediately springs to mind. Evil Uno has experienced this first-hand, as he reflected on being so ill during a match that he inadvertently defecated in the middle of the ring.
The AEW star was a recent guest on The Create Unknown, when host Matt Tabor began discussing things that could go wrong in life. Unbeknownst, Tabor joked that “at least you didn’t sh*t yourself”, except in this case, Uno actually did (h/t Fightful):
“Yes, once. I definitely did, once. Not a pleasant ordeal. I was ill before the match. Nowadays, we’re a lot more conscious of if we’re ill or not and we would probably never perform with another [talent] if you are ill because you could make them ill. When I started wrestling, people didn’t think that way. They didn’t think that way about injuries, they didn’t think that way about illness.
I had a very very bad stomach ache and rather than not perform, I told myself, ‘I’ll do it, what’s the worst that could happen.’ Well, the worst that could happen is that you can get slammed on your back and sh*t yourself in front of everyone. You think that’s the worst that could happen, but honestly it’s not that bad, compared to other things.
It happened, no one was aware because I wore spandex, thankfully. Since then, I can tell you that there are worse things than sh*tting yourself, for sure, but it is by far one of the most humiliating things that can happen to you in that situation. If I sh*t myself and everyone saw and knew about it, it would be an entirely different situation.”
When, exactly, this incident occurred remains unknown, though Evil Uno did begin performing under the moniker of Sh*tty in July 2011. He’s used the name on several occasions since, most recently in September 2018, but whether or not this unfortunate name was a direct result of his in-ring defecation isn’t yet known.
Signed by AEW in May 2019, Evil Uno has remained a fixture of The Dark Order ever since. He and former member Stu Grayson, who had previously teamed together on the independent circuit for years, enjoyed a pinch of success within the promotion, though they never captured the AEW World Tag Team Championships.
The 34-year-old Canadian will appear on the upcoming episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, teaming with Pres10 Vance to take on Aaron Solo and QT Marshall of The Factory.
