“The Godfather” Charles Wright was present in the WWE Survivor series for the farewell of The Undertaker. In a recent interview with Illustrated Sports, The Godfather revealed how he texted The Undertaker as soon as he heard about the farewell, asking the Deadman if he had made his career in the ring:
When I heard about this farewell, I sent an SMS and said, “Big Dog, are you done?” And he said, “Bear, I’m done.”

The Godfather also gave information about the private celebration invited only by The Undertaker in the hotel lounge and bar. No food was served on the occasion and guests were served only whiskey and beer.
The Godfather talked about how the celebration has resurfaced at all 20 years in the past as everyone told stories as they celebrated Undertaker’s career:
By that night, the past had come back to life. If you didn’t know anything better, it looked like it was 20 years ago. We told stories, we hugged, we cried – and we put Timmy White to bed, like we did back in the day.
When WWE invited me to the Survivor series tribute to Mark, I immediately texted him and said, ‘Let’s have a BSK meeting’. We paid tribute to Mark Calaway and the phenomenon he created with The Undertaker.
Mark is honest, respects business and never forgets about his friends. It changed things, especially for big men. It is unique in one type. All of us who could be here on Saturday were here, and we had a hell of a night. I will remember it forever.
The Undertaker ripped off his boots once and for all in Surviovr Series last week. Deadman’s farewell has come almsot 30 years to the day since his WWE debut in the 1990 edition of Survivor Series.
