[Rumor] Undertaker’s Appearance on Raw Sets Up Saudi Match With Elias
One of the big surprises on the post-WrestleMania Raw as the return of The Undertaker. Most believed he looked to be in the best shape he’s been in for some time and he went after Elias who said the next person to interrupt one of his performances was a “dead man”.
PW Insider reports that The Undertaker’s appearance wasn’t without reason. The idea is to set up a future match with Elias at a Saudi Arabia show. The wrote, that while there is uncertainty as to when that would be:
The Undertaker’s appearance on Raw last night appears to have been done to set up a singles bout with Elias for the company’s return to Saudi Arabia.
The Undertaker has also discussed coming back to wrestle again in WWE but working a smarter schedule and not nearly as often. Part of the challenge is the travel and that he wouldn’t do long road trips with consecutive shows.
There is also no word as to whether or not he will be included in the roster for the Superstar Shakeup that starts on next week’s Raw. If he is, that is a clear indication WWE has plans to use him more often than originally thought. If he’s not, then fans can and should only expect him to show up once or twice per year.
