The Undertaker and Vince McMahon share one of the most cherishable relationships in professional wrestling. The duo is very close in real life and their respect for one another is not only confined to the ring but flows to a point where The Chairman Of Board sheds tears when asked about what The Deadman means to him.
During a certain point in his career, Taker was going through a rough phase in his private life. The Phenom’s performance as an active Superstar was going downhill and this concerned McMahon to a great extent. As a result, Mr. McMahon decided to take matters in his own hands and pulled the 7-time World Champion in his Titan Towers office.
On the latest edition of After The Bell, The Undertaker revealed that McMahon had asked him to get his act together and focus on his in-ring career. The Phenom didn’t like the verbal delivery and almost knocked Mr. McMahon “on his a**”.
“Vince straight up pulled me into his office one day, and we started talking about it. He flat looked me square in the eye and said, ‘Mark, you need to feel sorry for yourself’, and I’m like, ‘What?’ ‘You need to feel sorry for yourself, and get your a** out there and do what you’re supposed to do.'”
“I had the inside of me saying like, ‘Get up and knock him on his a**, but then I was processing all that, I knew he was right.”
“And there’s not a lot of people that would have been able to say that to me that I would have been able to get through to get up and punch them in the face, but it was Vince and I knew where he was coming from.“
Things would have probably taken a different turn if Taker had actually punched McMahon.
