The Undertaker, known for his iconic presence and legendary career in WWE, has accomplished a lot in the business but there are things even he doesn’t like. In fact, it appears he didn’t like the Corporate Ministry at all.

In 1999, WWE was excelling by most metrics. As a result, some top-tier storylines that didn’t stick can be lost to time, overshadowed by memories of red-hot crowds and exciting angles.

The Corporate Ministry was the result of Vince McMahon being revealed as The Higher Power that the Undertaker had been working for, despite The Corporation and The Ministry being rival factions.

Speaking on a recent Q&A podcast exclusive to his Patreon, The Undertaker revealed that he wasn’t a fan of the two groups merging, believing it diluted the impact of his original Ministry of Darkness.


“How much can I push back really in that situation? But 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,” he recalled. “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, [and] 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.”

In case you missed it, The Undertaker also wants grittier content in WWE under the new leadership. Regardless, The Undertaker never liked The Corporate Ministry and it’s likely many agree with what The Deadman had to say.
