The Undertaker made its presence felt on the road from WrestleMania to Elimination Chamber.
AJ Styles – Undertaker’s longtime opponent for WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida – faced Aleister Black in a DQ-free game with his OC mates on the ring.
As you would expect, Styles and Black have set up an absolute pay-per-view clinic.
The Phenomenal One worked on Black’s legs so that the former NXT champion could not use Black Mass. They had a lot of chemistry and the action was quick and punchy throughout.
However, when the Good Brothers – Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows – finally got involved in the action, the iconic gong went off.
Take a look at the appearance of “Taker” below:
There is no doubt that The Deadman looked energetic – ironically – and motivated for his appearance and his match with AJ Styles at WrestleMania should be huge.
However, there is also speculation that “Taker may well tag Black against The O.C. with Kane maybe helping them too.”
Take a look at how Twitter reacted to the return of Undertaker:
The Phenom had a poor creative performance in Saudi Arabia earlier this month – which isn’t really their fault – but the match with Styles is highly anticipated.
Many questions arise as to whether a 55-year-old “Taker” – as he will be on March 24 – can really have a great head-to-head match.
However, if there is a talent with the ability to bring him to a big game, he would be one of the first workers of the generation in AJ Styles.
Oddly enough, Undertaker said he thought he would retire after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 while talking to Stone Cold Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions.
“I thought it was over,” said Taker. “It will be worth more than going out and making a speech because it is wrong.
“I said it would make more sense to our audience – of course, I started coming back and once I start training and preparing for something, you find yourself in the game.
But in this moment [at WrestleMania 33] I’m not coming back. “
Of course, he has returned several times since then and he insisted when he retires, he will do so on his own terms.
