Why WWE hero Undertaker is returning to SmackDown – Will he wrestle at Clash of Champions?

The Undertaker will return to SmackDown to help WWE sell more tickets but there is no plan for getting him involved at Clash of Champions next Sunday.

Vince McMahon’s promotion announced that Undertaker will be making an appearance next Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York just five days before the next Pay-Per-View show at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

However, there is yet no indication that Taker will wrestle or that this will lead to a programme that will develop at some point down the line.

The publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer claims that WWE are bringing The Phenom back in order to attract as many fans as possible.

Meltzer added that The Deadman’s return is not expected to lead to another match in the near future.

Therefore, the seven-time world champion may just make a non-wrestling appearance and address the crowd with his usual cryptic promos.

WWE seem to be bringing Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin back on RAW at MSG for the same reason.

According to Ticketmaster, there are still bundles of tickets available for both RAW and SmackDown, which are taking place at an arena that has a lot of meaning for professional wrestling.

Austin is expected to come back and moderate the contract signing between RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman who will face off for the former’s Universal Championship at Clash of Champions.

Undertaker hasn’t wrestled since Extreme Rules last July where he teamed up with Roman Reigns and defeated Shane McMahon as well as British bruiser Drew McIntyre in a No Holds Barred Tag Team Match.

Rumours then suggested that the ex-WWE Champion had handpicked McIntyre as his opponent at WrestleMania 36.

Undertaker still wrestles on a part-time basis despite his advanced age of 54 and the long list of injuries he has suffered throughout his glittering 29-year career.

The former World Heavyweight Champion is the most respected wrestler in the sport’s history as he revolutionised the product with his dark, supernatural and demonic character in 1990.

The Last Outlaw brought sinister gimmicks to professional wrestling and was a driving force behind the introduction of violent clashes, such as the Hell in a Cell, Inferno and Casket Match.
