#5 Former WWE Superstar Savio Vega to appear at Survivor Series for The Undertaker's final farewell
As reported by Super Luchas, former WWE Superstar Savio Vega will be at the Amway Center for The Undertaker's final farewell at Survivor Series.
Savio Vega was one of the members of Bone Street Krew in the WWE and a close friend of The Undertaker when he was a part of the company from 1994 to 1999. BSK was a prominent backstage group in the WWE in the 90s similar to the infamous Kliq. BSK featured the likes of The Undertaker, Rikishi, Godfather, Paul Bearer, Mr. Fuji, Brian 'Crush' Adams, Yokozuna, and The Godwinns.
Savio Vega is expected to be one of the many special guests that have reportedly been invited to be at Survivor Series. There are currently no updates on if Vega is scheduled to make a televised appearance.
Super Luchas reported the following:
"The Puerto Rican Mayor, who participated in WWE as Kwang and Savio Vega is set to return to WWE to be present for the retirement of his great friend The Undertaker. Taker will end a great run exactly 30 years after his first [WWE] appearance at Survivor Series 1990."
There is also no word on whether The Undertaker will have a match at Survivor Series or set up a future bout at the PPV.
The Undertaker will officially draw curtains on his iconic career at Survivor Series on November 22nd, and the WWE is making sure the PPV feels like a special occasion. The appearances of the close acquaintances of The Undertaker will be a great way to cap off an emotional night for the fans and the Deadman himself.
