The Undertaker Once Saved Bruce Prichard From Being Attacked By A ‘Gang Of Thugs’

The Undertaker - American Badass

Over the course of his three-decade long career, The Undertaker developed a reputation as a man you didn’t want to mess with. That’s both in and out of the ring. Whether it was sticking fear into fans and rivals alike as The Deadman or riding his motorbike to ringside as the American Badass, the message was clear, here’s a man capable of hurting people, and there’s a good chance that he’d enjoy doing it.

However, if you just so happen to be friends and travel partners with Big Evil these characteristics can work in your favour.

The Undertaker Saves Bruce Prichard

During an episode of The Last Ride documentary series titled ‘Tales From The Deadman,’ Undertaker recalled a hilarious incident where he came to the aid of Bruce Prichard. The WWE Hall of Famer and Bruce Prichard have a relationship going all of the way back to his WWE debut at Survivor Series 1990 where he was led to the ring by Prichard performing as Brother Love.

Reflecting on travelling with the Executive, ‘Taker described one incident where the pair got lost and ended up in the wrong part of town. As Prichard asked for directions the car was surrounded by a gang who thought they were heading for a nice pay-day until the WWE legend intervened.

“We jump in the car wanting to get from Chattanooga to Atlanta. Not knowing our way around too well, we end up in a pretty seedy neighborhood in a pretty sketchy part of town. Oh! you know Bruce, ‘Hey buddy! Think you can give us some directions to the interstate?”

“And the guy comes up, ‘Aww, well, maybe you can help me out,’” Prichard added.

Taker continued, “Now he can see Bruce, but he can’t see me. I’m thinking, ‘Oh man, this is going to be bad.’ So as he leans down, I give him the ol’ [eye-roll].”

Prichard added, “The guy backs up, almost falling down. He goes, “Man, what’s wrong with that dude, he looks like he just killed somebody!”

The Undertaker hasn’t wrestled since defeating AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, which was followed by an official goodbye seven months later at Survivor Series. The veteran was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2022.
