Koko B. Ware: The First Tombstone From The Undertaker Wasn't Executed Properly

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/10/18


Koko B. Ware was the latest guest on Why it Ended with Robbie E (via wrestlinginc.com) and stated that he was the first person to receive the Tombstone piledriver from The Undertaker, but unfortunately, it was improperly executed.

“I love Mark to death, and I’m still proud of The Undertaker today. He really, really has [taken] his gimmick a long, long way. But Mark was, you know. I was the first one to take the tombstone, but he was a little excited because that was his first time doing it, and I almost kind of cracked my neck a little bit doing it. And I heard all kind of little cracks and stuff like that. But I knew Mark was trying to get over… I got dropped on my head, to be honest with you. Yes. But thank God for working out, it kind of helps you. Now, if I had a weak head or something like that, I probably would have broke my neck big time. I was the first one that he used it on. [We didn’t practice], he just said hey. They wanted him [to do it]. It was kind of like a piledriver, but he just had my head between his legs too far that you could see my head, and if he would have had my head between the fat part of his thighs, then it wouldn’t have hurt.”
