The Undertaker’s Next WWE Match Confirmed

The Undertaker is currently not scheduled to be part of the upcoming WrestleMania event on April 7th, despite rumors that suggest that he could face Finn Balor, but what is now being reported by The Wrestling Observer is that The Undertaker will be wrestling at May 3rd’s Saudi Arabia event.

There were recent reports that suggested that The Deadman had retired from the company and wouldn’t be making a return to the ring any time in the future.

It’s interesting to see that The Undertaker has already signed up for the Saudi Arabia event, but not WrestleMania, a show that he has been dominating for more than two decades.

Undertaker’s last appearance was at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia back in November and it appears that his next one will be on May 3rd since all shows in The Middle East are known to be high money earners for all of the main stars involved.

The Original Plan For Authors Of Pain On The Main Roster?

The Authors of Pain were brought up to the main roster with so much promise last year after dominating in NXT but after the duo left Paul Ellering behind, they have been managed by Drake Maverick and been on something of a downward spiral.

Over the past few weeks, The Authors of Pain have been missing from WWE TV because Akam has been struggling with a leg injury and the company has been reluctant to push Rezar without his partner.

Like many teams who have been brought up to the main roster, AOP has been somewhat underwhelming and Sean Ross Sapp recently noted on
The List & Ya Boy that there was an interesting original plan for The Authors of Pain and new NXT recruit Stokely Hathaway.

“He was pitched by several people to manage Authors of Pain last year after when they abandoned Ellering it was pitched by several people,” he said via Ringsidenews.
