Let the speculation begin! WWE has confirmed (kinda) that The Undertaker is in Saudi Arabia.
WWE.com posted the following, reporting photographs circulating on social media have revealed The Phenom was spotted in Saudi Arabia—at a market of all places.
Reports have begun swirling in advance of WWE Super ShowDown that The Undertaker has been spotted at a market in Saudi Arabia. Photographs circulating on social media seem to confirm the presence of the legendary Superstar at the site of WWE Super ShowDown. If true, why is he there?
His apparent presence obviously lends itself to more questions than answers. Undertaker’s in-ring appearances are an increasing rarity, and he is not yet advertised for a match at tomorrow’s show. And yet, it would make a certain sense for him to appear, as The Phenom already has plenty of history in the Kingdom and, perhaps, some unfinished business as well.
Not only did Undertaker compete at a pair of 2018 events in Saudi Arabia — defeating Rusev in a Casket Match and falling to the reunited DX alongside Kane — he memorably battled Goldberg at last year’s WWE Super ShowDown event. Goldberg, of course, is scheduled to face “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship tomorrow. Depending on how things shake out, we could be headed from one rivalry straight to the other. It could be equally likely that The Deadman won’t be competing and will instead simply add his presence to the festivities. Tomorrow will bring the answers. Until then, we wait.
This follows a video from Enjoy Saudi recorded earlier this morning that showed him arriving with the WWE crew in Riyadh. The Undertaker is not advertised for tomorrow’s event but POST Wrestling reported he was expected to travel to Saudi Arabia and was seen in Winnipeg on Monday for WWE’s charter flight.
Wrestlezone first reported AJ Styles is scheduled to be his opponent at WrestleMania 36. The Undertaker was also recently spotted at the WWE Performance Center; the reason for his visit was unconfirmed but speculation would lead to the belief it was related to his Mania match.
