Bruce Prichard and Conrad Thompson discussed this during their conversation. According to Prichard, Taker had a voice and he always had an opinion. During these times, it was Bruce who had to talk to him to convince him.

“Taker always had a voice. And Taker had an opinion and a lot of times throughout the years it would be ‘Bruce go sell him’. I would be the one that would be charged with convincing The Undertaker to do something maybe that he wasn’t completely enamoured with. And be the go-between to bring things back and forth and to come up with a compromise.”

However, Bruce Prichard revealed that even if The Deadman did not like something, he went through with it. But, he always let the team know he did not like it.

The Undertaker could have had more control at WCW

Recently, Kevin Nash revealed that he wanted to bring Taker to WCW. He believed that his gimmick had reached a saturation point, and he needed a change. As a result, he wanted The Phenom to change his company and work with WCW.

Of course, Taker did not switch. He stuck with WWE and Vince McMahon. Moreover, he really stuck to his gimmick keeping aside the brief period of The American Badass.

Additionally, he always maintained his character even when he was in public. At that time when he was at the peak, social media wasn’t a thing. Therefore, he had to maintain his character even when he was out in public with his family. But, WWE never asked him to do that specifically. The Phenom wanted to ensure his image remains the same even when he is outside the WWE ring.
