The Undertaker isn’t done wrestling just quite yet. After his appearance at the WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble pay-per-view in April in Saudia Arabia, the company has today announced Taker will be back in the ring on Saturday, July 7th.
The house show, taking place at Madison Square Garden in New York City as part the WWE Live SummerSlam Heatwave Tour, will mark The Undertaker’s first appearance in The World’s Most Famous Arena in eight years.
“The Undertaker has waged many unforgettable battles at MSG, including his melee with Mankind at Survivor Series 1996, his WWE Championship clash against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at SummerSlam 1998 and his collision with his brother Kane at WrestleMania XX as part his legendary Streak.”
WWE has not yet revealed who The Undertaker will be going up against in his in-ring return, but they have revealed some other details for the house show, including Ronda Rousey’s opponent for her MSG debut.
Rousey will be taking on Raw Women’s champion Nia Jax. By then, Rousey could very well be the champion, as she is slated to face Jax for the title at the upcoming Money In The Bank PPV on June 17th.
According to Wrestling Inc, another match that is scheduled for the MSG house show on July 7th features Finn Balor vs. Elias vs. Intercontinental champion Seth Rollins. The following WWE stars are also being billed for the event: Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Dolph Ziggler, RAW Tag Team Champions Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy.
