Stories don’t get much more Texas than “The Undertaker hung out with the Texas Longhorns football team.” It needs Willie Nelson standing in the background singing Deep in the Heart of Texas while everyone eats breakfast tacos.
But that’s your story, folks. WWE’s undead wizard who earned his mystical powers thanks to a dark magic cult and the ritualistic murder of three innocent young girls who was also once a nu-metal loving biker stopped by a Longhorns practice to talk passion, work ethic and, I’m assuming, dog size and how that correlates to local yard ownership. Here’s the clip via Sports Illustrated, by way of the Texas Football Twitter.
It’s not quite as cool as him showing up in full gimmick to support the Cleveland Cavaliers, but what is?
Coach Tom Herman put over The Undertaker’s football prowess and made sure to grab a mark photo, which thanks to the Hook ’em Horns is about as close as we’ll get to the Deadman joining the Bullet Club. Just glance at it and glance away.
Note: if you’re wondering where Undertaker actually went to college, he attended Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth but dropped out after a couple of years to concentrate on his duties as Texas Red (and others) in World Class Championship Wrestling.
Undertaker will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33. We’ll keep you updated in the event that Roman gives a pep talk to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets by standing in front of them, rolling his shoulders and puckering his lips.
