• Vince McMahon Requested The Undertaker To Return, WWE’s Plan Heading Into SummerSlam 2019
As seen on last week’s episode of RAW, The Undertaker made a surprise return and saved Roman Reigns by laying out Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre and this set up their tag team match at Extreme Rules 2019.
You can watch it below:
According to Slice Wrestling, Vince McMahon personally requested The Phenom to return to WWE programming for Extreme Rules 2019 and SummerSlam 2019 because WWE is dealing with poor ticket sales (WWE did a horrible attendance number at WWE Stomping Grounds PPV).
WWE plans to use The Undertaker to build great momentum heading into SummerSlam 2019 as they want to give a solid competition to AEW’s All Out PPV, which also takes place in August.
