Undertaker Says Vince McMahon Hated Of The Ending To His Match With Triple H At WrestleMania 27

Vince McMahon says no matter what happens, The Undertaker should always be able to walk away.

Ten years ago at WrestleMania 27, Undertaker and Triple H laid it all on the line and then attempted to prove who was the better man on a single night in Atlanta, Georgia.

Although that match would end with the Undertaker going 19-0 at Wrestlemania, Triple H was the one who walked out that evening while the Undertaker needed medical assistance to get to the back.

Speaking with ESPN SportsNation, Undertaker revealed that Vince McMahon actually hated that ending feeling that no matter what, the Undertaker should always be able to walk away from any given scenario.

"Yeah, [Vince McMahon] did not like it. He did not like it at all. To quote, ‘My Undertaker walks out of the ring. I don't care if he wins or loses, my Undertaker walks out.’ We already knew what we were into. We were in the third year of the story. That alone is so special, to be able to continue a story for four years, it's unheard of in our business. We knew what the Finish was going to be and we knew we wanted to come back. So how do we do that? Yes, I won the match, but I couldn't leave on my own. He walked out, and he lost. People were blown away by that and it gave him -- even though he took the L, it gave him the credibility -- that no one else had ever done. He left the Undertaker laying and unable to walk out. It in turn led to me... that getting in my head, ‘Nobody leaves me laying.’ So now, we have to come back and we came back in Hell in a Cell, with Shawn [Michaels] as the guest referee. It was so good. Those four matches are probably my proudest body of work."

Elsewhere in the same interview, The Undertaker spoke openly about Shawn Michaels and the match that he had with Shawn at WrestleMania 25 that started the whole story between he and the founding fathers of D-Generation X. You can read Undertaker's comments on that match at this link.
