The bell tolls once more this Tuesday on SmackDown Live, for one of the most “Iconic” superstars in WWE The Undertaker. This week both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live, make their long-awaited return to one of the Grandest arenas in sports-entertainment Madison Square Garden.
The last time saw The Deadman on WWE programming was at SummerSlam during his No Holds Barred Tag Team Match, with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntrye. Afterward, Taker vanished back into the shadows until WWE beckoned his call.
The Undertaker doesn’t just come back to his yard, without a specific purpose and here are my top three predictions on what that reason may be.
#3 Knock King Corbin Off His Throne
Let’s face the facts folks, “The Lone Wolf” Corbin is one win away from becoming the 2019 King of the Ring…That is if Corbin can get past Samoa Joe and Ricochet tomorrow night on Raw.
Prior to SummerSlam, there were rumors circulating that The Deadman and Corbin were on a collision course heading towards a huge match at the Biggest Party of the Summer.
Of course, those plans were scrapped and the WWE Universe got The Big Dog and Taker teaming up for the first-time-ever.
If you thought Corbin as the GM was aggravating, just wait until he gains the regal robe and crown. There’s only one force strong enough to shut the loudmouth up… The Undertaker!
#2 Interrupt Elias Again
Who could ever forget when The Deadman shocked the world on the Post-Mania-35-Raw and delivered a THUNDEROUS Chokeslam and Tombstone Piledriver to “The Drifter!”
There was speculation that Elias and The Deadman were clashing at Super ShowDown…God don’t we all wish that happened.
How fitting that is it, that The Undertaker just happens to be returning on the same night that Elias faces Chad Gable to advance to the King of the Ring finals. It’s very likely that The Drifter may be seconds away from victory and the lights go and a gong echoes through the arena!
#1 Unfinished Business With The Scottish Psychopath
There’s one superstar in WWE right now in desperate need of a big win: “The Scottish Psychopath” Drew McIntyre.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed McIntrye be the hitman for “The Best in the World” Shane McMahon and company however when the storyline excludes one of the most gifted versatile superstars from being used on weekly programming… THAT’S A PROBLEM!
During the highly-intense buildup for their Anything Goes Match, the Scot proclaimed to the WWE Universe that he was not afraid of The Deadman.
McIntrye definitely held his own against Taker at SummerSlam, but what would happen if the two monsters were locked inside Hell in the Cell? McIntrye could greatly benefit from a “rub” from one of the most Iconic superstars in WWE history.
I’ve heard the rumors that WWE is only bringing back The Undertaker and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to sell out MSG Arena.
Folks, rumors are only that I don’t care if your name is Dave Meltzer or not. Nobody knows exactly what WWE is doing these days, and what better way to gain more viewership than to start the process.
One thing we know for sure is that all eyes will be on The Deadman when he arrives on SmackDown Live as he delivers another bone-chilling ominous promo!
