The Undertaker whooped into shape by Vince?

“I had a whole mess of personal problems going on in my life. It was really affecting me in my ability to perform, and my ability to want to go out and perform. I mean, I was consumed with it!” Mark recalled an instance when Vince spoke to him, and chewed him out for not believing in himself.

“Vince straight up pulled me into his office one day, and we started talking about it. He looked me straight in the eyes and he said, ‘Mark, you need to quit feeling sorry for yourself”.

Mark says he was taken aback by this, as he didn’t expect his boss to be so personal with him. This was one of the best parts of their relationship, the fact that they were friends and professionals at the same time.

“You need to quit feeling sorry for yourself. Then get your a** out there and do what you’re supposed to do.” Mark states that he was taken aback by this, as he was still dealing with his problems, and hadn’t confronted them yet.
