The Godfather is under a legends deal with WWE for at least another several years, as he recently revealed. The WWE Hall of Famer spoke with the Universal Wrestling Podcast for a new interview and was asked if the feeling backstage in the company is different with Triple H being in charge. During his answer, he noted that he just signed a new extension to his legends deal.

“It’s no different for me, I’m friends with both [Vince McMahon and Triple H],” Godfather said (per Wrestling Inc). “I think both treat me the same. They both know about all my smoking and craziness. They both know me … I’ve been on a Legends Contract since 2003 … and I just now signed another one for five years.”

He continued, “So, I mean, that says something. I’ve been on the payroll since 2003. You know, it ain’t bad being The Godfather.”

Godfather last appeared on WWE TV at Raw XXX.
