The 58-year-old recently sat down with veteran journalist Bill Apter for an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda. During the conversation, Apter asked The Phenom whether he had to ever deal with an intractable talent in the locker room. Responding to the interviewer, Taker indicated that things had seldom turned physical, with the exception of a single occasion in a supposedly nighttime setting.

He also mentioned that his close relationship with Vince McMahon played a factor in his influence behind the scenes. He stated that the office had complete faith in his leadership.

Yeah, there are a few people I had to pull aside on occasions through the years. Didn't have to slap them around or anything. Yeah, not like the old days. There were a couple of occasions where, in the nightlife aspect, things got a little more physical.
