The Undertaker – ‘Giant Gonzalez Made Great Khali Look Like Lou Thesz’



On a recent edition of his “Six Feet Under” podcast, The Undertaker discussed his much-maligned showdown with Giant Gonzalez. He said,

“I should have been in the ring with Yoko. Instead, I’m riding out on a chariot with a big black vulture. That big black vulture was there to pick the bones of that sorry match. It’s amazing I survived the early years of my career. The opponents…I’m not going to name names, but I’ll name that one because I’ve talked about it a lot and he’s deceased anyway. Giant Gonzalez, wow.

“He made Khali look like Lou Thesz. It was such a struggle. It wasn’t his fault. It was what it was. You can only do what you can do. On paper, what a viable threat to the Undertaker. He’s a foot taller than me. He was damn near 7 foot 8 and had the muscle suit with the fur. Once I was done, I was done. ‘I need to have some cold beverages and try to wash this out of my memory.’ They were awful. I don’t think I had one good match with him.

“I tried. I tried hard. I was trying to make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t. I was killing myself. He was so limited in what he could do. ‘Just grab me throw me around.’ That was no sell ‘Taker where it was all about the character. I was having to reach the outer banks of (what I could do). ‘Maybe he kicks the sh*t out of me for five or six minutes and we figure a way out of this.'”

The Undertaker and Gonzalez’s most iconic (or infamous) match took place at WWE WrestleMania 9 and saw the Phenom win by DQ.

The heavily-criticized match saw Gonzalez use ether on the Phenom which led to the DQ, extending The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania to 3-0.
