— Will The Undertaker appear at WrestleMania 35?
WWE’s biggest show of the year is just three days away and it remains unclear whether “The Deadman” will appear.
According to a report tonight by PWInsider.com, The Undertaker is slated to be in New Jersey for Wrestlemania. While there’s still no word on whether he’ll appear on camera,
Dave Meltzer noted Wednesday in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that if The Undertaker is scheduled to appear at WrestleMania, it’s being kept very quiet because “those high on the food chain have outright said no Undertaker on this show.”
According to Meltzer, The Undertaker will be in action soon as he is scheduled to appear at WWE’s upcoming spring show in Saudi Arabia. He’s pretty much working the show due to “the ridiculous money involved.”
While WrestleMania is promoted as the biggest show of the year, the shows in Saudi Arabia are WWE’s most profitable events by a wide margin.
