WWE News: Triple H comments on the Undertaker's longevity and fans wanting to see The Deadman
The Undertaker will finally return to the WWE later this month, for the first time since Wrestlemania 33.
What’s the story?
WWE COO and former World Champion ‘The Game’ Triple H was recently interviewed by The New York Post in order to promote the WWE Raw 25th Anniversary episode. During Triple H’s interaction with The NY Post, ‘The King of Kings’ talked about the return of The Undertaker for the first time since last year’s Wrestlemania 33 loss to Roman Reigns.
In case you didn’t know…
It was on 2nd April 2017, when the entire world last saw The Undertaker step into the wrestling ring and compete in a match. The Deadman was last seen in action at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida last year when he competed and lost against ‘The Big Dog’ Roman Reigns in a match which turned out to be Mark Callaway’s second ever defeat at The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Undertaker has not been seen in a wrestling ring since then, however, the former World Heavyweight Champion has been booked to make a special appearance on the upcoming Monday Night Raw 25th Anniversary special episode.
The heart of the matter
While speaking with The New York Post, Triple H decided to address the WWE fans who have been wanting to see the return of The Deadman for a while now. The Game started off by saying that he totally understands why people can’t let go of The Undertaker’s exit from the WWE and knows that it’s a hard thing to admit the end of such a legendary career. Furthermore, The Cerebral Assassin also said that he doesn’t know the exact reason why Undertaker has decided to leave and claimed that the fans and everyone else associated with this company will now have to wait and see what’s next for The Deadman.
"You talk about longevity and the ability to change and morph all those things, he is a measuring stick of all of that. That's why 25 years later they want to see him maybe more now than ever. As a performer, he is the measuring stick in a lot of ways, and as a human being as a performer in what we do, as a locker room leader. I respect him more than anybody."- Triple H stated.
There have been speculations that upon his return to WWE later this month, The Undertaker could possibly ignite his much-awaited rivalry against John Cena and there is also a strong possibility of the two men facing off later this year at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans, which could turn out to be Taker’s last and final match.
A match between John Cena and The Undertaker is quite possibly going to be the greatest match in the history of the modern era in WWE. It will be regarded as two icons of this generation going head-to-head against each other at the biggest stage of wrestling, that is, Wrestlemania.
