WWE plans different segments to keep the WWE fans engaged. Sometimes these segments take weird turns in the last moments, which can result in backstage brawls. They’ve also led to heated rivalries between superstars.

Recently, Vince Russo spoke about The Undertaker. He mentioned Undertaker’s reaction to Bret Hart’s controversial loss against Shawn Michaels at the 1997 Survivor Series.

After the controversial defeat of Bret Hart, The Undertaker threw a chair across the room. During his interview, Vince Russo said, “Now, bro, I wanna make one thing perfectly clear. Between when I said that to Vince and the Survivor Series, two, three, four other people could have pitched the same thing.

I don’t know, I wasn’t privy to any of that… Bro, ‘Taker gets up, throws a freaking chair across the room, and I’m like, ‘Holy s***.’ Now, bro, keep in mind, I’m traveling with Vince, so I ain’t going nowhere.”
