When Will The Undertaker Return?

Triple H was a recent guest on Sky Sports Lock Up podcast and was naturally asked about when The Undertaker may return to the WWE. Triple H stated,

“If there’s one person who has earned the right to call the shots the way they want it to be called – it’s The Undertaker. I think this [his schedule] should, this will all depend on him and I think it should all depend on him. I think at this point it should be what he wants to and feels comfortable doing. I know that he as a performer wants to always be able to give his best, and if he can’t then he doesn’t want to do it, and I think when he’s in a position like he is right now, where he feels great and wants to be out there and show The Undertaker to the world, but it’s again, it really comes down to what he wants to do, as it should.”

WWE No Longer View Roman Reigns As A Top Star?

Blake Oestriecher wrote a Forbes editorial claiming that the WWE no longer sees Roman Reigns as a top star. The contributor of the Forbes’ SportsMoney team, Oestriecher provided a list of five signs as evidence that the WWE may be ending the Roman Reigns experiment. And they are hard to argue against:

  • Braun Strowman’s emergence
  • Roman Reigns’ losing streak
  • The lack of a legitimate Title reign
  • The emergence of other ‘babyface’ stars like Seth Rollins
  • Reigns’ inability to beat Universal Champion Brock Lesnar
