Michelle McCool Was Questioned For Murdering Undertaker With A Sledgehammer After Prank Call

Sometimes pranks go too far.

Pranks can be funny, but death pranks are a step too far and, unfortunately, many celebrities have been involved in alleged deaths that weren't true. Michelle McCool fell victim to a death prank years ago when the police questioned her for murdering her husband The Undertaker with a sledgehammer.

McCool recalled the story on the Wives of Wrestling podcast.

"I had three cops follow me in the neighborhood once because a 911 call said that I killed my husband with a sledgehammer. Ironically, it was the WrestleMania after he wrestled Triple H. I'm one of those people where, if I'm telling the truth, I feel guilty. I feel like I'm lying if I'm in a pressure situation. I'm coming through the neighborhood, guarded gates, talking to a girlfriend and I'm like, 'Dang, there's a cop behind me,' but I wasn't speeding. I pull into the house, 'Crap, there's three cops, what is going on?' They're like, 'Ma'am, is your husband home?' 'Yeah, can you tell me what's going on?' 'No, we just need to make sure your husband is home.' 'What is going on?' We're walking to the garage, I'm thinking the worst. I go into the garage, into the kitchen, he's coming out of the show, the further place in the house. I'm yelling, 'Babe, babe, babe.' We finally get to the back of the house, he walks out in his towel, there are three cops behind me and he's like, 'What is going on?' They finally told me. Someone called 911 saying I had killed him with a sledgehammer. They let us listen to the call," she said.

The Undertaker might be a "Deadman" on WWE television, but he is very much alive in real life.

McCool and Undertaker were present for WrestleMania 38 week as Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
