Tank Toland recently recalled the time that his former tag team partner locked The Undertaker and several other superstars in a bathroom.
Toland, formerly known as James D*ck, worked alongside Chad D*ck as The D*cks on SmackDown in 2005. As part of his main-roster initiation, Chad was encouraged by some superstars to prove himself by legitimately punching his tag partner.
Speaking on Cafe de Rene, Toland said Chad was willing to do what his co-workers asked simply because he wanted to fit in. Feeling under pressure, he locked The Undertaker & Co. in a bathroom so they could not see him pleading with Toland to take a punch.
“I remember ‘Taker telling the story the next day to some of the other guys I heard,” Toland said. “And he’s like, ‘Yeah, so we were going to open the door. I opened the door… it doesn’t open. The little b*****d locked us in!’ Get this s***, they all started f***ing laughing that he got one over on them. So he went from down here, totally freaking buried, to over like a motherf*****.” [7:49-8:30]
The D*cks appeared on SmackDown between October 2005 and February 2006 before receiving their releases from WWE. Their biggest victory came when they defeated The Legion of Doom (Heidenreich and Road Warrior Animal) on the November 25, 2005 episode of SmackDown.
Former WWE US Champion helped The Undertaker escape
With The Undertaker and several others locked in a bathroom, Chad D*ck got down on his knees and begged Toland to let him punch him.
Orlando Jordan, a WWE Superstar between 2003 and 2006, eventually opened the door, which is when the roster saw Chad begging his tag partner.
“Orlando was the one that unlocked the door,” Toland added. “He wasn’t in there. So Orlando unlocked the door, the boys came out, and they saw him on his hands and knees begging me.” [8:38-8:51]
The following night, Chad punched Toland in an attempt to be accepted by his fellow superstars. Toland retaliated by knocking Chad out, leaving both men requiring medical attention.
