WWE SmackDown: 3 questions from the episode before Clash of Champions (September 10, 2019)
- WWE left us with way too many questions at the end of an eventful episode of SmackDown Live. #SmackDown #ClashofChampions
#3 What was the point of The Undertaker's return to MSG
Has Sami Zayn not be paying attention to what has been going on in WWE in the past few months? Did he not watch what happened at SummerSlam?
Dolph Ziggler mocked Goldberg for taking the spotlight away from newer and younger superstars and returning whenever he liked. He got served by Goldberg at SummerSlam for using those words against him and the rest is history.
Similarly, WWE used Sami Zayn to interrupt The Undertaker on SmackDown Live in the middle of the latter's return to address the Madison Square Garden crowd. He asked Undertaker to leave the ring and let him take the reins. As comeuppance for verbally disrespecting The Phenom, one of the greatest Superstars of all time, Zayn got hit by a Chokeslam to the mat, closing out a relatively weak segment.
Whatever WWE wanted to do with The Undertaker, other than helping with ticket sales, did not materialize. The segment did not provide any indication regarding The Undertaker's future, did not give any momentum to Zayn's character, and the speculation of The Fiend coming after The Deadman is still just speculation.
