• The Undertaker Had His Final Proper Match 1 Year Ago Today
1 Year ago today, WWE Extreme Rules 2019 took place and it featured The Undertaker’s final, proper in-ring match (unless you want to count with encounter with AJ Styles at WWE Super ShowDown 2020 as a proper match).
The Undertaker teamed up with Roman Reigns to defeat the team of Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre. This ended up being the best match of the night and they absolutely blew the roof off that place that night.
Undertaker won the match for his team with a Tombstone Piledriver on Shane McMahon, and passed the torch to Reigns after the match as he gave Reigns a pat on the chest and said “this is your yard”.
You can watch the complete match below:
