Bruce Prichard says Vince McMahon would never tell The Undertaker when to hang it up.
As the wrestling world continues to be captivated by the new Undertaker documentary on WWE Network, The Undertaker's original manager is weighing in on when “The Deadman” will finally hang up his black hat.
Speaking with Newsweek, Bruce Prichard, who portrayed Brother Love in 1990 and acted as The Undertaker's original manager, feels that the relationship between Vince McMahon and Mark Calaway is based on so much trust and mutual respect that as long as one or the other believes there is more business to be done, then business will be done.
“It's a mutual trust between two men in that The Undertaker is the guy who has always been there. He never threatened to leave, he never held it over Vince's head when everyone else was leaving in droves,” Bruce began. “‘Taker was the one on the front lines. He was the one guy you can count on that when everything was breaking down he was going to stand there steadfast and fight to the bitter end, no questions asked. You didn't have to ask for his loyalty. You didn't have to ask "if you're with me." That's just the relationship between him and Vince. It's a mutual trust and friendship. Sometimes it's a love/hate situation, but the basis is based on respect and love. Both of them trust the other one and will do anything they can for each other.”
He continued, “I think he'll let Taker decide on his own, but I guarantee you that it'll be a mutual decision. I think it'll be a decision that they'll discuss and mutually agree upon. If Vince thinks he can get one more out of him or Taker feels he has one more left in him, the other will respect that and make it work.”
