The Undertaker‘s match against Goldberg at Super ShowDown almost three weeks ago didn’t gain the reaction that either man expected, which led to speculation that The Deadman wouldn’t be appearing on WWE TV anytime soon.

Of course, The Deadman has never been one to dwell on the past and re-appeared on Monday Night Raw this past week when he saved Roman Reigns from a two-on-one assault at the hands of Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon. It was later announced that The Undertaker will team with Reigns against McIntyre and McMahon at Extreme Rules in less than three weeks time.

Undertaker’s match with Goldberg at Super ShowDown was the first time that The Deadman was seen on WWE TV since the night after WrestleMania 35 since he opted to return for a match in Saudi Arabia rather than a match at The Biggest Show Of The Year.

This doesn’t seem as though it will be the case next year since Brad Shepard recently revealed on the Oh, You Didn’t Know Podcast that Undertaker had already handpicked his opponent for WrestleMania 36.

“According to a source in WWE Drew McIntyre is currently scheduled to be The Undertaker’s opponent at WrestleMania 36. They decided to start the program early to boost ratings which is why you saw Undertaker on Raw this past week. Shane is likely to play into it somehow.”

“I’m told The Undertaker hand-picked Drew and it works out well for Drew because they had no creative plans for him after Roman,” he said via Ringsidenews.

This means that there could be a match set up between the two men at Extreme Rules next month and The Undertaker then wouldn’t need to appear on WWE TV until 2020 and would allow Drew McIntyre the push that he deserves and has been waiting for over the past few years.
