Original ‘Taker Return Plans For SSlam, Morale In TNA

Ryan Clark

One source is reporting that the Undertaker actually wanted to return to WWE at SummerSlam, however, Vince McMahon pushed his return back to the Unforgiven pay-per-view next month. McMahonâ<80><99>s reasoning for not letting Undertaker return was because he felt like by letting him return at SummerSlam would send the message that superstars needed to rush back from injuries and now is not a good time to send that message.

Backstage morale is said to be at an all-time low in TNA. At a time when TNA’s home grown stars are being featured less and less, the company is dropping huge money and giving valuable television time to former WWE castoffs (Test, Matt Morgan) and disgraced celebrities (“Pacman” Jones). Last week’s Hard Justice PPV was another example that exciting, state-of-the-art wrestling and differentiating itself from WWE are not part of the company’s overall direction.
