In case you didn't know...
This will mark the third match that The Undertaker has wrestled for the WWE this year. He made his return at WrestleMania 34 in a three-minute squash match against John Cena and defeated Rusev in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble a few weeks later.
The heart of the matter
The Twitter account for Madison Square Garden broke the news on Monday morning. Take a look at their tweet below:
The last time The Undertaker was at Madison Square Garden was on September 25th, 2010, when his brother Kane defeated him in a New York Street Fight for the World Heavyweight Championship. Kane obtained the championship three months prior when he cashed in his Money In The Bank contract on Rey Mysterio the night he won the briefcase.
WWE.com also posted an article regarding this breaking news this morning. The stop at Madison Square Garden is part of the WWE Live SummerSlam Heatwave Tour. The article also mentioned other classic matches that Undertaker had at MSG, including Mankind at Survivor Series in 1996, a WWE Championship match against Stone Cold Steve Austin at SummerSlam in 1998 and a match with Kane at WrestleMania XX.
An opponent for The Undertaker will most likely be announced within the next week. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further details on the return of The Deadman.
I really hope the WWE starts to air these Madison Square Garden shows live on the WWE Network because they are always full of great match-ups. As for who I would like The Undertaker to face, I'd like to see a match with Kevin Owens as it has never happened before.
