WWE News: Will The Undertaker Compete At Summerslam 2019?
The Undertaker has competed in this year’s Extreme Rules PPV event teaming up with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre. He picked up the win in style removing the bad memory of Super ShowDown that had several botches in it. It’s true that The Phenome has never looked better in terms of physical state in quite sometimes.
WWE bringing him back for Extreme Rules was definitely an indication that he would be competing at Summerslam, too. After all, this is the biggest event of the summer and you never know whether it’d be the last time that we’ll see The Undertaker performing. A ‘big-four’ event like Summerslam certainly demands something special like this.
Local ads around the show started promoting The Undertaker vs. Drew McIntyre so to make the event a sellout. They have been successful as the no tickets are left at the host venue of Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada. But as the event approaches, it looks like the match is out of the card. As per the latest updates from a reliable source, the anticipated match is not happening.
Nothing but RESPECT.

On a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer opened up about the Deadman’s status for Summerslam 2019 which is not positive, at all. WWE has not included The Undertaker on the match card, for now. The only good thing is that plans could change on the upcoming episode of WWE Raw where a bunch of legendary superstars is returning.
But to date, we have not witnessed any storyline progression between The Undertaker and Drew McIntyre since Extreme Rules passed by. It was pretty surprising considering that a match between these two seemed evident. McIntyre even hinted the same with a post on his Twitter handle. But Meltzer could not help but come up with a negative answer when Guest co-host Garrett Gonzales asked him about ‘Taker’s Summerslam status,
“I need to find out more. To me it makes no sense, why do you have Undertaker on Extreme Rules and not SummerSlam. You would put him on Extreme Rules to build for SummerSlam. And again. Things can change as we still got a month, but whatever it is, they have a line-up for the show, and he’s not on it.”
