The Undertaker might have done almost everything in his career but now it has emerged the WWE Hall Of Famer refused to kick out of a certain move.
Bully Ray recently appeared on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions where he discussed his battle with The Undertaker when The Dudley Boyz faced the Phenom in an ill-fated handicap match at The Great American Bash in 2004.
According to Bully Ray, The Dudleyz offered The Undertaker the chance to kick out of their famed 3-D finishing move but The Deadman refused:
“Nobody kicked out. If we hit the move, maybe there was a save or a pull-out… nobody kicked out. As a matter of fact, at the Great American Bash when it was The Dudleyz versus ‘Taker, we said to ‘Taker, ‘If you want this…’ and he said, ‘Nope, you protected it for so long. We’re not gonna do it if it doesn’t mean anything.’ Total respect.”
Bully Ray then recalled the time that someone finally did kick out of the 3D in TNA when The Dudleyz – then known as Team 3D – lost to The Motor City Machine Guns:
“We hit the 3D on Chris Sabin, D-Von goes for the cover… one… two… Sabin kicks out. What the hell? Mike Tenay on the call on commentary, ‘I don’t think anybody’s ever kicked out of this move.’ Blah, blah, blah. The next set of tapings, me and D-Von, ‘Thank you very much everybody, we love you, goodbye, we’re out the door.’”
