The Undertaker's Summer Slam opponent confirmed?
- Jan-Jaap Abbink
The Undertaker's recent return to WWE television will lead to him teaming with Roman Reigns to face Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre at this weekend's Extreme Rules pay-per-view (14 July), but it doesn't look like this will be the last stop on 'The Deadman's' latest Sports Entertainment voyage.
Per local advertising in Toronto, Ontario, 'Taker will compete against McIntyre at SummerSlam on 11 August.
This comes just over a week after reports that Undertaker had handpicked 'The Scottish Psychopath' to work alongside in the future. Now, it looks like Extreme Rules will serve only as a teaser for what's to come later.
The Undertaker's facial expression after Super Show-Down's botchy mess versus Goldberg looked like one of two things at the time: either the 54-year-old was getting his Danny Glover on, or he immediately knew he that had to right that bout's wrongs against future opponents. The McIntyre situation makes it seem like the latter.
If the bout comes to fruition, Drew makes sense as a young, strong, athletic opponent who can hopefully guide the battle-ravaged legend to a solid match. Here's hoping he's able to do so should they collide.
