The Undertaker was set on fire at the WWE Elimination Chamber PPV
The AP picked up on the story as follows:
ST. LOUIS (AP) â€” The pro wrestler known as The Undertaker got a red chest and a scare but escaped serious injury after a pyrotechnics mishap in St. Louis.
World Wrestling Entertainment spokesman Robert Zimmerman says the wrestler, whose real name is Mark Calaway, is fine. In fact, he wrestled after being burned Sunday night, and was back in the ring for WWE’s Raw show on Monday.
The Undertaker enters the ring as fireballs explode. Zimmerman says there was apparently a timing mistake Sunday and his jacket caught fire.
The wrestler threw the jacket down and was evaluated by a ringside physician. Zimmerman says he suffered a sunburn-like burn to the chest but was cleared to wrestle.
The pyrotechnics are operated by a company that contracts with WWE.
St. Louis fire officials are investigating.
