Details Of The Undertaker’s Argument With Vince McMahon Days Before His WWE Exit Revealed

Vince McMahon The Undertaker

After decades of loyalty and mutual respect, The Undertaker and Vince McMahon have a strong friendship. So, it is unsurprising to hear that McMahon reached out to the Deadman to personally inform him that he was stepping down from the company.

McMahon shockingly retired from WWE last summer. He announced his retirement via an official statement on and social media.

The news came as a huge surprise to the wrestling world as it was widely assumed McMahon would never relinquish control of his company. This was also the mindset of The Undertaker, who upon receiving a personal phone call from McMahon about his monumental decision, thought he was being “ribbed”.

Speaking on Ariel Helwani Meets, The Undertaker revealed the conversation got a little heated between the two as he though McMahon was messing with him.

“He called me the day before he announced it and we got in an argument because I thought he was ribbing me. I said, ‘There’s no way. There is absolutely no way you’re stepping away.’ He was like, ‘No, This is what I’m going to do.’ I’m like, ‘Why are you (bleeped out) with me? This is me.’ We ended up going at it a little bit. Finally, I was like, ‘Alright. Okay.’ Sure enough, the next day, Vince resigned, but I knew there’s no way he’d stay away.

The Deadman was right and McMahon didn’t stay away from WWE. In January earlier this year, he made his return to the company as Executive Chairman of the Board. ‘Taker continued, stating a McMahon-less WWE is hard to comprehend.

Even in this role, I think it’s going to be challenging for him. I mean, that’s his baby, man. He’s the one that created this whole thing. I know he wants to make sure these TV deals and everything are done the right way. Right now, that’s his sole motivation, but that’s Vince McMahon. I don’t know. We’ll see where it goes, but a WWE without Vince is, for me, hard to imagine.”

Is Vince McMahon Back In Charge Of WWE Creative?

Ever since McMahon forced his way back into the company earlier this year there has been speculation surrounding his involvement in WWE creative.

One of the significant factors giving weight to this rumour is the announcement of Brock Lesnar vs Omos at WrestleMania 39. However, this conjecture is yet to be corroborated.
