New York Knicks: Enes Kanter witnesses The Undertaker eye roll up close (Video)

New York Knicks‘ Enes Kanter lived the dream of every wrestling fan when he watched The Undertaker perform his signature eye roll.

New York Knicks center Enes Kanter has had plenty of fun this offseason. Between recruiting LeBron James and trolling Knicks fans on Twitter about his free agency status, Kanter’s been living his best life this summer.

A lot of perks come with playing for the Knicks. On Saturday, Kanter had one of his greatest highlights when he met legendary WWE wrestler The Undertaker. Kanter got up close and personal backstage with Taker and watched him perform his signature eye roll.

Kanter is coming off his opting into his $18.6 million player option, so he already had a lot to be happy about. Now for those of you who aren’t pro wrestling fans: The Undertaker is one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time.

Meeting him is a dream for any wrestling fan. A guy like Taker is such a big star that meeting him is something you can tell people you did whether you’re a wrestling fan or not.

Undertaker was in town to wrestle his first match at Madison Square Garden since 2010. It was a New York City preview for the Deadman who will also be participating in Wrestlemania 35 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Kanter’s not the first NBA player to encounter The Undertaker. Kevin Love, a huge wrestling fan, met with Taker before the Cavs season opener this past season.
