WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray took to Busted Open Radio to comment on in-ring accidents on the heels of what happened to Liv Morgan this past Monday on RAW. Here are the highlights:
Recalling when he once injured The Undertaker: “I hit Undertaker in the back of the head with a steel chair and put nine staples in his head,” said Bully Ray. “What do you think the repercussions should’ve been on a personal level? A fight in the locker room! He should’ve been waiting for me and ready to punch me in the face. On a professional level, [I should’ve been fired or suspended].”
How Undertaker reacted: “You know what happened after the match? I went into the locker room. It was just me and him. He didn’t yell. He politely asked me to sit down, and he educated me as to why that could never happen again. He never threatened me, he told me how it could impact my career when it came to carelessness moving on. He handled it in the most professional of ways because he knows, just like I know and everyone else knows, it ain’t freakin’ ballet. Accidents do happen.”
Brie Bella-Liv Morgan incident on RAW: “Mine was a completely careless accident. I know how I made my mistake, but I should’ve never made my mistake. What I saw the other night between [Liv Morgan and Brie Bella], was a little bit of rust and a little bit of inexperience came together at a moment of time. That’s what happened. It’s between Brie and Liv.”
Negativity on social media: “Really the only people who can talk about it are wrestlers,” posits the WWE Hall of Famer. “There is so much negativity on social media with fans taking her side or burying her, you’re not the professionals people. If you think you know how to do it, or think you can do it better, please become a wrestler.”
