The Undertaker has given some details as to how he had a run-in with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon ahead of the Survivor Series in 1993, claiming that he was “livid” with the boss.

Whilst ‘The Deadman’ became synonymous with the tag-team spectacular event, not every memory from the event was going to a positive one. For the 1993 Survivor Series, The All-American combination of Lex Luger, The Steiner Brothers and Tatanka were set to take on The Foreign Fanatics, consisting of Yokozuna, Ludwig Borga and The Quebecers.

Luger and Yokozuna had been in a battle since the former won the bodyslam challenge aboard the USS Intrepid. With all eight men feuding going in to the match, Borga took on Tatanka in singles action. After picking up the win, Borga continued to attack his opponent and took him out of Survivor Series, where he was replaced by The Undertaker.

To confirm that he was a part of the side captained by Luger, The Undertaker came to the ring on Raw prior to the event and opened his coat to display an American flag.

Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, The Undertaker has discussed how this didn’t fit his character at all, and that he was livid with Vince McMahon for proposing it.

If it would have been up to me you wouldn’t have seen it. Believe me, I’m as big a patriot as will come down the road. I do a lot of work with our veterans and our first responders. But when Vince McMahon presented that to me, I was like, ‘There is no way in heck I am going to walk out there and open my coat with that flag.’ He thought it was so cool because it was the Betsy Ross 13-colony flag, right? And that was what was going to make it cool. I was livid. I was like this is not what Undertaker does.

Whilst appearing on The Bump, The Undertaker also discussed what WWE need to do if they are going to utilise Omos properly, even offering his own personal help.
