The Undertaker made his shock return to WWE this week on Monday Night RAW and saved Roman Reigns from a brutal beatdown at the hands of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre.
The Deadman is now booked for next month’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view event where he will be teaming up with The Big Dog to take on The Prodigal Son and The Scottish Psychopath in tag team action.
The WWE Universe never expected to see The Undertaker returning to TV so soon. In fact, its been only 3 weeks that The Phenom had defeated Goldberg at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia!
WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T is of the opinion that Taker’s sudden return to weekly TV is to make up for his poor performance against Goldberg at Super ShowDown.
“No one thought that they would see The Undertaker this soon after Super ShowDown, in what we would call, ‘the incident.’ No one thought we would see him this soon, but me personally, I think Undertaker was thinking, ‘Man, I gotta go get this bad taste out of my mouth. I gotta get rid of it and do something to make me forget.’”
It’s evident that the tag team match at Extreme Rules will help protect The Undertaker’s rust while allowing him to shine at the same time.
“So I say come back out, and wash that little dirt off of you, and give the people what they want to see. Is this The Undertaker’s last match? That is the one thing. If it is the last match then you don’t want it to go down like it did at Super ShowDown. You don’t want that for yourself, or for your kids, or legacy. So you say, ‘Hey man, I have to go out here and do a re-do.’
WWE wants fans to forget about the heavily criticized Taker vs. Goldberg match that went down earlier this month and the company is firing on all cylinders to re-establish their long-standing legend, The Phenom.
