During The Undertaker's Last Ride documentary on the WWE Network, Vince McMahon was asked about what The Deadman means to WWE. Welling up at the sound of what was asked, McMahon asked for taping to stop.
Speaking with TV Insider, Mark Calaway has reacted to seeing Vince getting emotional: “With Vince, our relationship has far exceeded the boss-employee relationship. I still work for him, but he is a guy who is on the shortlist of those I consider dear friends," Calaway said.
"It was a little emotional for me to watch him not be able to put into words our relationship because he always has an answer for everything. To see him not able to answer the question, it was emotional for me to watch that. I’m not an overly emotional person, but it’s nice to know people have such strong feelings for you when you know how you feel about them. It was a strong moment seeing Vince like that for sure.”
You can catch the next episode of The Last Ride on the WWE Network following Backlash 2020 on Sunday night.
