The Undertaker has suffered many injuries in his career and one that was visible to the television audience was an orbital injury suffered in 1995 at the hands of Mabel (Viscera).
Undertaker had to wear a protective mask due to the injury, and things could have been much worse if he took a bad hit before he was officially diagnosed.
"The doctor goes, 'you've lost about 50 percent of your orbital floor.' 'Excuse me?' 'You need to go home and find an ophthalmologist and a surgeon.' Come to find out, I ended up losing 90% of my orbital floor. My optic nerve is setting on a jagged piece of bone. If I got hit on the right side of my head again, there is a good chance I would have lost my eye. Took two surgeons, they go in, take out all the bone fragments, and they put in a fake one," recalled Undertaker while speaking on Hawk & Wolf.
Undertaker continued, recalling how his vision became further damaged due to an accident by Rey Mysterio.
"Rey Mysterio, tiny guy, sweetheart of a guy, he ended up jumping off the top rope, and his ass was supposed to hit me in the chest, but it hit me right in the face. It was a bony ass. Bony ass, right on the bridge of my nose. He lands, I have all of his weight on my head, I hit the mat and blew out the other one. I broke my nose and I was concussed. It's hard being injured by an anus. My nose was broke, I fixed my nose right there, I just squeezed my nose back," he said. "The second one, to this day and it's probably been 15 years, I still have double vision."
Undertaker noted that he could see fine if he looked straight, but looking elsewhere caused his vision to go blurry.
