WWE Hall Of Famer Recalls Vince McMahon Advice That Inspired Catchphrase WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long has shared some advice he received from retired WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

Long acted as general manager of SmackDown between 2004 and 2012, where he became famous for his tag team match-ups and for pitting opponents in one-on-one matches against WWE legend the Undertaker.

Speaking on the first edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s One on One, Long recalled how McMahon had helped him to find his confidence as a wrestling general manager:

“Vince McMahon had sent Stephanie McMahon out there to make an introduction, and when Stephanie came back, Vince commented that he wanted a little bit more enthusiasm on the introduction.

“He really wanted to build the guy up when introducing. So, I was standing there and listening; I didn’t say anything.

“So, what I did was when I got to the promo with The Undertaker, that’s when I remembered what Vince said to build him up.

“That’s when I said, “One-on-one with The Undertaker. And that’s how it all started.”

Long was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2017.

The former GM has made several WWE TV appearances since then, mostly on special editions of Raw and SmackDown.
