Legendary tattoo artist Paul Booth recalls the first time he met The Undertaker.
"The Phenom" The Undertaker was last seen on WWE programming this past Monday on RAW when he interrupted Elias and delivered a Tombstone Piledriver to the man formerly known as "The Drifter".Over the past year, The Undertaker has done of number of sit-down interviews and opened up about his career in professional wrestling and shared unheard stories from his time on the road. All Elite Wrestling commentator Jim Ross mentioned at the end of March that WWE has a documentary about The Undertaker in the works as well.
Another story surrounding the life of "The Phenom" was told by tattoo artist Paul Booth. Booth recalled tattooing The Undertaker at a convention in New Jersey and while having a conversation with the former 7-time WWE World Champion, Booth asked The Undertaker if wrestling is real and the following is a direct quote from Paul Booth about how that conversation unfolded:
“And of course I asked the question like, ‘Is that sh*t real or what?’ You know, it’s theatrical and everything, and he’s like, ‘I’m a hurting motherf*cker man’." Booth recalled during a sit-down session with Loudwire. "He’s like broken bones and bruises and even thought it’s staged, you still got a 300-pound dude falling from eight feet high and landing on his… so yeah they get hurt, but I had to hear it from the horse’s mouth because some of it is so over the top."
