WWE News: Major Details On The Undertaker’s WWE Contract Coming To An End
The Undertaker has been part of major speculations, as always in this particular timespan of Wrestlemania. This is that one time of the year when his return seems evident in WWE programming. Wrestling fans wait for an entire year to watch him compete in a dream match at the grandest stage of them all. He managed to be in the same capacity in 2019, too.
Additionally, rumors have been running rampant that his WWE career might have been over. One can’t just can’t think this legendary wrestler stepping outside the familiar zone of the WWE. But he has featured in various outsider events in recent times which might have been the indication for the same. Also, he removed WWE mentions from his bio.
This was the most significant reason why multiple WWE sources hinted that we may not see him at Wrestlemania. Veteran wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer went ahead to discuss the situation. He revealed that The Undertaker is no more under contract with WWE. The existing deal has expired.
It rules out the chances to see him in a match at Wrestlemania 35, logically. But there are still a few weeks to go to the biggest event of the year. A lot can happen within that timespan and Vince McMahon may sign him in a new deal for one more match. Currently, he is neither scheduled to appear at ‘Mania nor at Saudi Arabia show in May.
But WWE may convince Undertaker to work the Saudi event by offering a huge paycheck if the Prince wants him to perform. The demand for a legend like him is always high on outside countries. Previous speculations suggested that Finn Balor might face him in case he returns to perform at Wrestlemania.
But Finn has moved to the Intercontinental Championship picture wiping out the chances of this match happening. We have to wait till the next week’s episode of WWE Raw where Ric Flair’s 70th birthday party will take place in Atlanta. Several legends will grace the ring within which Undertaker may be one. So this might be his return on WWE TV prior to Wrestlemania.
Undertaker will make another appearance at Starrcast II affiliated to All Elite Wrestling. But Starrcast founder Conrad Thompson did not want us to believe that it’s an AEW show,
“I know people might assume this is an AEW event, but that is not true,” said Starrcast founder Conrad Thompson, whose convention is a weekend-long event featuring more than two dozen live wrestling-themed shows. “We have wrestlers appearing from every promotion from all over the world, and Starrcast isn’t just for All Elite Wrestling fans, it’s for all wrestling fans.
