Vince McMahon and The Undertaker discussed WWE working with UFC’s Dana White
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Vince and The Undertaker had a discussion about how Endeavor owns WWE and UFC to form this new company called TKO.
Recently, UFC President Dana White claimed that Vince tried to “f**k me” many times in the past, but they get along a lot better now. Vince was asked about that.
Vince: Bust his chops?
Reporter: He said you used to ‘f**k him’
Vince: Please, I don’t do business that way. I don’t bust anybody’s chops, unless they get in the way. Dana and I get along very very well. He’s really a good guy.
Reporter: Was is just the case of two alpha males in the same spot and they have to try and take each other out and eventually realize they can coincide and build it even bigger?
Vince: We’re good partners and good businessmen. You’re good businessmen, you get along.
Reporter: Is it true you stuck him in the cheap seats at WrestleMania?
Vince: [laughs] No, no, no. Not at all.
Reporter: What are your thoughts on the dynamic between Vince and Dana working together?
Undertaker: I think it’s hilarious. They’re so similar, the both of them. All do respect.
Vince: He’s a tough guy.
Undertaker: They’re very similar. They say what’s on their minds. Their both really good businessmen, and they definitely want the best for each of their brands.
Vince: I’m a better businessman.
Undertaker: By far. No doubt.
