It Came From YouTube: The Undertaker floats up to the heavens at the 1994 Royal Rumble

Yes, people paid good money to see the 1994 Royal Rumble and this is what they got at the end of the Undertaker Vs. Yokozuna Casket Match.

Apparently it was Marty Jannetty dressed as The Undertaker when he “floated up to the heavens”. Kudos to him for doing that (seriously), because I’m terrified of heights and I’d have been way too afraid.

Scott Keith’s rants (both of them) on this incident in his 1994 Royal Rumble Rants are hilarious. He even transcribes The Undertaker’s little soliloquy for prosperity.

    There had to have been a less convoluted way to explain why Undertaker started wearing purple shoes.

    So many years on and I still haven’t a clue what that was all about

      The Undertaker wanted to take a vacation to spend some time with his wife, and this was the way they decided to write him off TV for a few months.

      As to why they decided to do it THIS way? I guess Vince thought it would be memorable, and to his credit he was kind of right…

    If The Undertaker didn’t think that “Diamonds And Pearls” was fantastic, then he truly has no soul. 🙂

    Between Taker on a string and the awful tie in the Royal Rumble match itself that drove me to the horrors of WCW for the next year. Which would lead to its own craptacular events.

    I asked Jannetty about this on Facebook. He replied,

    ‘wasnt me…was Steve Lombardi..but Ive heard that ever since though…all good, no worries’
