• WWE Is Working On A New Character For The Undertaker

As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, The Undertaker showed his “Big Evil / American Badass” side on RAW when he signed his WrestleMania 36 contract for a match against AJ Styles.

You can watch the entire segment below:

According to Tom Colohue, WWE is currently working on a new character for The Undertaker:

“As mentioned in the recording they did between The Undertaker and Steve Austin that The Undertaker is leading into another run, shall we say.

He has this particular way of doing things but he wants to have some longevity and maybe The Undertaker character isn’t right anymore. The American Badass is unlikely to return. It was much for the time. It was created to sort of keep him going for the Attitude Era.

But it could be that The Deadman has simply run its course and so he has to now evolve and make something different.

It has been mentioned to me that we are going to see something different, something new, we are not going to see a return to the old Undertaker.

They want a clean slate, they want a refresher and everyone involved wants that as well. Also, it’s too late, the kayfabe age is well and truly gone.”

The Undertaker has been doing The Deadman gimmick continuously for 16 years now (he dropped the Big Evil character and returned as The Deadman in 2004 at WrestleMania 20).
