Vince McMahon Breaks Down In Tears When Talking About Special Relationship With The Undertaker
| Last updated
Vince McMahon choked up when he was asked about his close relationship with The Undertaker as part of an incredible new documentary on the WWE legend.
The 74-year-old WWE CEO and chairman has shared a special connection with 'Taker, real name Mark Calaway, since he debuted in his promotion in the 1990s.
And McMahon couldn't hold back the flood of emotions during a tear-jerking interview about the 'Deadman' in Undertaker: The Last Ride documentary.
Speaking in Chapter 2: The Redemption, which debuted last Sunday on the WWE Network, the wrestling boss was asked what The Undertaker meant to his promotion and him personally.
A visibly upset McMahon, who had tears around his eyes, cut the documentary from being filmed and said: "I can't do that."
When the WWE chairman took his seat again for the interview, he said 'Taker was the "the most loyal performer I've ever dealt with."
McMahon explained: "Undertaker, Mark Calaway, is the most loyal performer I've ever dealt with.
"He is the kind of man you'd want literally in the foxhole with you."
The Undertaker, who is in the fourth decade of his WWE career, remained loyal to Vince during the height of the Monday Night Wars with WCW in the 1990s.
And the legendary pro wrestler even named his son Gunner Vincent after his special relationship with McMahon.
Speaking in the latest episode, the 'Phenom' said McMahon was the most influential person in his life other than his father and he would "take a bullet for the man."
'Taker said: "I can't think of anyone more influential on my life, other than my father, than Vince.
"He'd be the first one to pat you on the back, but also the first one to kick you in the a**e when you need it.
"I love Vince to death. I'd take a bullet for the man, honestly I would. Yes, he's my boss. He's my friend. He's been like a dad.
"He's been like a brother. He's been it all to me. I've gone through some really harrowing personal issues in my life.
"Kinda let them take over who I am as a person. The problems just became so monumental that I didn't really care about anything else.
"He was the one that basically sat me down in a chair and told me, 'Mark, you need to quit feeling sorry for yourself.'
"There's no other person that could say that to me that I wouldn't have got up and knocked the s**t out of them.
"But it was Vince, and I knew it was true and I knew where it'd come from.
"Tough love. That's what I needed, but not because he was my boss, but because he was my friend and he cared about me.
"He's an incredible man and a very important person in my life that's made me a much better man."
The Undertaker has since revealed how he wants to retire from WWE by signing off in a similar style to two sporting legends.
