• The Undertaker Confirmed For Major Upcoming WWE Show
According to the Wrestling Observer, The Undertaker will be working the post-WrestleMania 35 PPV, which is set to take place on May 3rd in Saudi Arabia.
As we have noted before, The Undertaker is an integral part of WWE’s deal with Saudi Arabia, as the Saudi Arabia officials are big fans of Old School Legends and “The Phenom” is the biggest active Old School Legend in the WWE today.
No word yet on who The Undertaker will be facing at this PPV.
Speaking of The Undertaker, we noted yesterday via Slice Wrestling that “The Deadman” is interested in facing “The Demon King” version of Finn Balor at WrestleMania.
WWE officials are discussing whether to do this match at WrestleMania 35 or next year’s WrestleMania 36.
With only two RAWs left before WrestleMania 35, it’s safe to say that this match isn’t going to take place at this year’s WrestleMania and it looks like Balor is going to get his Intercontinental Title rematch against Bobby Lashley as “The Demon King” at WrestleMania 35.
Speaking of The Undertaker’s WrestleMania status, he will be making an appearance at WrestleMania 35 and word going on is that he’s going to have an impromptu match (which will be his record 27th match at WrestleMania).
