During the Hall of Fame speech, Vince McMahon explored the characteristics of The Phenom to the live audience. The WWE Chairman also feels that there’s no other man more deserving than The Undertaker in the Hall of Fame.
The Boss said, “One of the qualities that someone who is accepted to Hall of Fame would have. Qualities such as integrity, no doubt this man has an abundance of integrity more than anyone I’ve ever known.”
“WCW never bothered to call The Undertaker because they knew he would never answer,” Vince McMahon spoke about The Phenom’s loyalty.
McMahon added, “RESPECT! This man has never demanded respect. Yet he commands it, just by the way he carries himself as a performer and as a man.
According to Vince McMahon, The Phenom also employs the quality of ‘leadership,’ as he has set an example of leadership. In addition, many WWE Superstars have revealed their stories when Taker has guided them backstage and in the locker room.
