WWE Hall Of Famer Explains How Vince McMahon Made Him Feel Special During Backstage Incident With The Undertaker WWE

A WWE Hall of Famer has explained how Vince McMahon made him feel special during a backstage incident with The Undertaker.

Despite many controversies centering around him, many legends and current stars have expressed nothing but praise for the relationship they share with WWE Executive Chairman Vince McMahon.

One WWE Hall of Famer who remains on good terms with McMahon is Teddy Long.

On the latest episode of The Wrestling Time Machine with co-host Mac Davis and legendary journalist Bill Apter, the former SmackDown general manager revealed what happened when he was called into Vince McMahon’s office along with The Undertaker. He said:

“I’ll tell you a good story. When I was doing that angle with The Undertaker, where he kidnapped me and everything. They called ‘Taker first, and then they got me and the writers said they wanted me in Vince’s office.”

“So I had the chance to go and sit down and meet Vince and ‘Taker and go over this whole thing. I was thinking, ‘Wow, look at the position I’m in, sitting with Vince and ‘Taker’. I don’t say anything and then Vince [McMahon] goes over and says ‘Are you going to say anything?’.”

“So I’m like, I don’t know what to say. They kept talking about the match, and I chimed in one little thing and I just looked at Vince and he’s like ‘God damn it! Let’s do that!”

Long continued on to add that Vince McMahon made him feel special that day and it is one of the reasons why he is so loyal to him and WWE, saying:

“I thought about that all day. I was sitting in there with two icons and going over something, so that made me feel really special.”

“That’s why I said, I’m not going to let this man down, I’m never going to mess this job up. And I never messed the job up – there were just people that didn’t want me there.”

Teddy Long recently returned to WWE programming for the WWE Draft 2023 broadcasts on Raw and SmackDown last month.
