The 2000 Eyegore Awards

Rob Zombie and The Undertaker
Eyegore Awards - October 13, 2000
Singer Rob Zombie recently shared this photo he took with The Undertaker 20 years ago at the Eyegore Awards which were held at the Universal Studios Theme Park in Hollywood.  The award honors excellence and achievement in the horror and sci-fi genre.

There is video footage on YouTube of The Undertaker accepting the award, during which time he acknowledges the fact that this event is being held under a full moon on Friday the 13th.  The recording appears to have been taken with a home video camera by a fan in attendance.  Taker is decked out in the American Badass (aka: Biker Taker) version of his character that he was using at the time.  The video also shows a good look at the gargoyle on the award statue, which reminds me a lot of The Imp from Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama.

The two men were also at the theme park to commemorate the opening of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.  This October 2000 event included mazes centered around Rob Zombie, The Undertaker and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, including guest appearances from The Undertaker, Mideon and Gangrel.  It also featured dark rides based on Jurassic Park and Terminator 2.
