Michelle McCool Details The Undertaker’s Cucumber Phobia
Don't Make The Undertaker Go Anywhere Near A Cucumber!
The Undertaker wasn’t afraid of anyone or anything during his long in-ring career but this doesn’t mean The Phenom is immune to fear. Unusually, the WWE Hall Of Famer is afraid of cucumbers and holds a deathly hatred for the fruit.
Speaking about her husband’s phobia on The Wives Of Wrestling Podcast, Michelle McCool revealed the family torment The Undertaker at birthdays by hiding cucumbers around the house.
“We can’t even have one in the room. Every birthday, [daughter] Kaia gets cucumbers. She’ll like put them under his pillow, she’ll put them in his car. Cucumbers, he can’t even smell them…can’t even be around it,” McCool said.
‘Taker previously revealed over WrestleMania 38 weekend that his fear of cucumbers started as an eight-year-old when he ate a whole vat of pickled cucumbers and became ill as a result.
Such is his hatred of the fruit that The Dead Man once vomited in a waffle house after he saw a cucumber floating in his ice tea and he once screamed at a sushi chef after they ignored his request to exclude cucumbers.
