The Undertaker showed up on Raw following Stomping Ground that nobody saw coming. He targeted the heel alliance of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre who made Roman Reigns life hell for the past several weeks. This set up a huge tag team match at Extreme Rules PPV where we will see the dream team of Reigns and The Undertaker.
It was an unprecedented return for The Phenome that surely delighted the WWE audience. He also made two back to back appearances on Monday Night Raw helping to pull the TV ratings up for the show. The same tradition may just continue considering that WWE will be using him in at least a couple of matches, this year.
A report from Brad Shepard confirmed that The Undertaker will wrestle in one or two more matches in 2019 even after Extreme Rules. This will help to build a big match at WrestleMania 36 and also will prevent any ring rust for him. This points out the major botches that happened at Super ShowDown in his match against Goldberg.

Going by the reports by Shepard, we may assume the two more events of 2019 where we’d see The Undertaker wrestling. One of them should happen at Summerslam in Toronto and the other one must be the next Saudi Arabia edition in November. Additionally, reports also revealed one of his future opponents.
Unlike the previous rumors, speculations suggest that The Undertaker will be facing Baron Corbin at Summerslam 2019. Previously, Drew McIntyre was the choice for the Deadman since these two are going against each other in a tag match at Extreme Rules, anyway. But Vince McMahon loves Corbin’s work too much and hence he might sanction this contest despite a potential fan backlash.
Here’s a report from wwfoldschool.com,
“While fans were expecting that WWE was going to book The Undertaker vs. Drew McIntyre, it wouldn’t be surprising at all if WWE officials go with Corbin because Vince McMahon is very high on Corbin (because of his ‘good looks’) and that’s the reason why he was chosen to retire Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 35.”
Corbin is currently feuding with Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship in the main event scene which may come to an end at Extreme Rules.
