Wrestler’s court is the stuff of legend. What started out as a bit of fun became a serious way for those backstage in WWE to settle their differences with The Undertaker acting as both judge and jury.
However, that doesn’t mean that The Deadman himself was immune from being put on trial according to one veteran. Dutch Mantell, who worked for WWE in the mid-1990’s and from 2013 until 2016, recently claimed that he put The Undertaker on the stand for “romancing the girls.”
The Undertaker Stands Trial
Speaking on Story Time with Dutch Mantell, the former manager broke down how the whole scenario played out. Including the WWE Hall of Famer making sure that he later got his own back.
“I did this with Undertaker first and I put him on trial for I think romancing the girls around. Imagine. Because he denied it. He denied it. And then I was the prosecutor and the judge. Of course, you know, I never lost a bat. I never lost a case. And so and then Undertaker loved it so he would say, ‘Wrestlers Court,’ then he put me on trial. He’d convict me for whatever I did,”
Mantell went on to say that the whole idea of wrestlers court was his, and began as a bit of fun between the members of the locker room, but quickly became something of a serious institution.
“When it got up there, either Bradshaw was the judge or Undertaker was the judge and they would really try guys on kind of serious stuff. I started it as a joke but it ended up like a pretty serious shoot,”
In recent years CM Punk has spoken out against wrestlers court, branding it “the most insecure small d*ck energy average white man embarrassment to the wrestling business shit of all time.”
