Vince McMahon pays emotional tribute to The Undertaker

 

Vince McMahon appeared to introduce ‘The Deadman.’ The WWE Chairman was having a tough time containing his emotions. After all, The Undertaker wasn’t just Mr. McMahon’s most loyal and go-to employee, he is also a close friend.

Mr. McMahon said, “Thirty years. Thirty long, arduous years. That’s three decades! Three decades this man, not withstand his injuries and hardships he’s endured and stricken fear in the hearts of, if not, terror in the hearts of almost everyone he faced here in the ring. At the same time entertained the global audience. Be it WWF or, of course, WWE Universe currently.”

“Tonight marks an end of an era. End of an era of a long, storied career. It has to never be duplicated. So tonight, we say, we say Goodbye. They say, uh, they say nothing lasts forever. I think they’re wrong, because the legacy of The Undertaker will live on eternally!” continued Mr. McMahon before introducing The Undertaker to the ring one last time.
