Below are a couple of top news stories of the day, featuring The Undertaker and Vince McMahon.

• During a Q&A session on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker gave his thoughts on The Corporate Ministry faction from the WWF Attitude Era:

“How much can I push back really in that situation? I didn’t like it. I thought as soon as it became Corporate Ministry that it got all watered down and it just ceased to be fun anymore. So, yeah, that was the kind of the beginning of the end right then.

We were really pushing the envelope, as far as touching on religion and all these other different (aspects). We were getting plenty of hate mail over some of the stuff that we were doing but once The Corporate Ministry, there’s 20 people out there.

[The nWo] is a great example of where it ended up, you know? Not a super great payoff, in my opinion. It was just kind of blegh.”

• On his podcast, Jim Cornette discussed WWE’s recent success with international premium live events (fka pay-per-views). Cornette explained why Vince McMahon was hesitant to hold major shows overseas in the past.

Cornette highlighted that McMahon believed such events would negatively affect pay-per-view buys, which were a vital source of revenue for the company back in the day.

Here’s what Cornette said:

“One reason Vince didn’t want to do pay-per-views, the big show, whether premium live event or whatever anywhere outside of the continental United States is because of the time zone difference. It would affect the buys and the buys were where all the money came in.”

However, with PLEs streaming on Peacock / WWE Network, WWE doesn’t have to worry about that anymore.
