Burn! Undertaker, Burn!

And no, we don't mean it figuratively.

As if losing his World Heavyweight title to Chris Jericho isn't bad enough, the Undertaker was actually engulfed in flames while making his usually painfully slow though goddamn grand entrance in last Sunday's Elimination Chamber's eponymous main event at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Undertaker, one of the most popular pro wrestlers, enters the ring as fireballs explode and music blares. On Sunday, a fireball went off too close to him.

"It was a mistiming," Zimmerman said. "He threw his jacket down. It kind of singed is the best way to describe it."

The wrestler was evaluated by a ringside physician. Zimmerman said he suffered a chest injury that looked like a bad sunburn. He was cleared to wrestle and performed for 25 minutes.

It wasn't clear if the audience knew Calaway was really on fire or if it was part of his act. The Undertaker has notoriously disappeared from WWE for months at a time, often under the presumption that he is dead, only to mysteriously return to the ring to seek vengeance against those who have wronged him.

The pyrotechnics are operated by a company that contracts with WWE, not the Scottrade Center. Zimmerman declined to identify the company. A Scottrade spokeswoman did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

WWE is investigating to determine how the mishap occurred. St. Louis fire officials also are investigating but declined to comment. Bill Zieres, deputy chief of the Missouri State Fire Marshal's Office, said state officials have not been contacted.


Initially reported as minor injuries, the credible Wrestling Observer has later reported that The Undertaker gets burned incident resulted in first- and second-degree burns on his chest and neck from Sunday night's incident. No wonder he was wearing his other entrance robe on RAW the following night.

Or is this a lead-in to a plot of which Kane is conspiring against his brother, yet again?
