I went in and I said ‘Where’s Taker, where’s Mark.’ And they said ‘He’s in there with Vince.’
Michaels expressed the urgency to bridge the gap and find common ground with The Undertaker, recognising the importance of their reconciliation for the future of the company.
And I just needed to know where he’s at on this because if there’s somebody you’re gonna have a chat with it’s gonna be him, for all of this to move forward he and I are going to have to find a way to get simpatico on this.
The meeting between The Undertaker and Michaels emerged as a pivotal moment, signifying an agreement to put the tumultuous past behind them and forge ahead.
And to this day I remember waiting on him, he came out and he goes ‘We’re cool.’ And off he went.
