WWE icon The Undertaker has revealed what it’s like working with Vince McMahon for three decades and the secret to his success.
The 53-year-old legend of the ring has wowed fans ever since debuting for the American billionaire’s then WWF all the way back in 1990.
Cast in the role of a zombie mortician – impervious to pain and stirred by a magical urn – he made the spooky gimmick an unmitigated success.
Seven world title reigns followed, along with the greatest undefeated streak in the history of WrestleMania, for the man nicknamed The Phenom.
It now seems Taker, real name Mark Calaway, could be nearing retirement, with no match currently scheduled for The Deadman at WrestleMania .
In a revealing new interview , the Demon of Death Valley made a very interesting point on working with the 73-year-old chairman of WWE .
He said: "He’s awesome. You may see him on TV and think, ‘man, I do not like that guy’, but he is awesome. He wouldn’t ask anybody to do anything that he wouldn’t do.
"He’s really built an empire from hard work and dedication and energy. When you see that man and what he puts into it, you feel ‘Well, I at least have to try to match that’.
"He’s an awesome leader. I call him boss, but we’re like friends now than we are employee and company owner."
The 6ft 10in grappler became tearful in the same interview with pastor Ed Young when talking about how his wife Michelle McCool changed his life .
The father-of-four also discussed how he first met McCool, 39, and disclosed that she was initially "terrified" of him and his onscreen brother Kane.
Undertaker has reportedly angered Mr McMahon by agreeing to appear at the Starrcast II wrestling convention in Las Vegas in May.
The event is affiliated with rival promotion All Elite Wrestling and takes place one day before AEW holds its Double Or Nothing show.
There’s a suggestion he could also be set to launch a new podcast, called ‘Dead Man Talking’, with Starrcast supremo Conrad Thompson.
Last week, Taker broke character in a video for Latin rapper Bad Bunny, best known for his worldwide smash hit I Like It with Cardi B.
The Phenom is heading to For the Love of Wrestling, at Exhibition Centre Liverpool, on Sunday, April 28, alongside WWE greats Ric Flair and Bret Hart.
Inside The Ropes. a Scottish live events company, has also booked him for live interviews in London on April 30, Glasgow on May 1 and Manchester on May 2.
