The Godfather revealed that during his time in the WWE, Vince McMahon asked Charles whether he could get some women for the role. He said, “Vince says to me, ‘Charles, you think you can go get some girls? I’m like, ‘Vince, are you joking? You know, me and Taker are in strip clubs every night.

We know every strip club; we know every girl.’ So I grab The Undertaker, you know, I grab Mark (The Undertaker), and we go down to a strip club.” [h/t Wrestlinginc.com]

Wright mentioned that getting the girls from a strip club was done during the daytime. ‘The Phenom’ Undertaker would join Papa Shango, aka The Godfather, in this activity. WWE used to sign the girls and pay them for their time in The Godfather gimmick’s wrestling business.
