Shawn Michaels, JBL, The Godfather & Many Others Discuss The Undertaker’s “Bone Street Krew”

WWE.com spoke with several past and present roster members about Undertaker’s “Bone Street Krew,” the backstage group that formed up around him around the same time as the Kliq came about. Check out some highlights from the article below:

Henry O. Godwinn on the group: “It stood for the Bone Street Krew. Myself, The Undertaker, Yokozuna, Rikishi, Savio Vega, Brian Adams, Paul Bearer, and Papa Shango. Then [Mideon] came up a year later and joined, too.”

Godfather on the founder: “Everybody thinks that The Undertaker started The BSK, but it was actually Yoko. Yoko was always the mouthpiece at the time. Yoko would talk like a gangster. One time he said, ‘BSK. Bone Street Krew in the house!’ That was Yoko starting it.

JBL on rumors of issues between the BSK and the Kliq: “I hate to dispel the myths about all these groups that were warring back in the day, but they weren’t warring back in the day. I was in the locker room with all these guys. The BSK, to my knowledge, never had a problem with The Kliq. Really, nobody did.”


Shawn Michaels on the BSK: “We all hung out at the same places, anyway. We were friendly. At some point, the rumor started that The BSK started because of The Kliq, but I don’t know who started the stirring of the pot that we didn’t get along.”


Savio Vega on Undertaker offering to get him a contract extension: “When my contract ended, I went to Taker and said, ‘Bro, I’m finished.’ He said, ‘What do you mean finished? Let me talk to them and get you two more years.’ I said, ‘No, we’ve got something we’re going to do in Puerto Rico.’ So he asked, ‘You sure? Come on, two more years.’ But that was it for me. I appreciate him trying to help me.

Mideon on the Undertaker laying down the law one time: |We were in Germany. Have you ever seen the picture of The BSK, Shawn Michaels, “Stone Cold” and everybody on the bus? That was a breakthrough night. Everybody was just having fun and intermingling. After that, we were at the bar, and this wrestler who was with us got into a fight with this big German guy. They tumble back through the bar into this doorway, and into a cement wall by a set of stairs. I’m trying to pull them apart, and I swear to God, it was like a John Wayne movie: The doorway lit up and The Undertaker came walking through it. He grabbed both of them by the throat with one hand and posted them against the cement wall. He took the wrestler out of the bar and gave him a talking to.|

Godwinn on the group mutually deciding to stay loyal to WWE after Hall and Nash jumped ship: “We called a meeting. It was right after one of the WrestleManias. Some people in the locker room weren’t happy. The BSK got together as a group, and we decided to stay in WWE.”
