The Undertaker could be physically present at the Royal Rumble, intended as an event. But not necessarily as part of the show, as he may not be involved in any of the segments WWE airs. These are the indications that are emerging more and more frequently from America, where however it is expected that WWE will be able to give fans a big announcement during the night of the first Big Four of the year.
'PWInsider' has indeed confirmed the suggestion already reported in the past few hours, namely that the presence of Undertaker behind the scenes of the Royal Rumble now appears almost certain. A courtesy visit to friends and colleagues from the past, of course, but also a possible moral support to his wife Michelle McCool who will take part in the women's fight.
But somehow Undertaker could be involved in an even more direct way by WWE, which during the Royal Rumble could announce its induction into the Hall of Fame.
New details on The Undertaker
The Undertaker basically retired during the 2020 Survivor Series, exactly thirty years after his debut on the same show.
However, he did so without the presence of the public, as the event was held in the ThunderDome. This denied him the crowd experience he deserved so much after making generations of wrestling fans throb, dream and tremble for three decades.
Undertaker could also take part in the recordings of some content for WWE and its Network, with the federation usually using the backstage of the big PPVs to stage some new programs from its on-demand collection. With this year's edition of WrestleMania based in Dallas, Deadman's home state of Texas, it is very likely that WWE will introduce it to its Hall of Fame right in 2022, with such an announcement that it could come directly.
on the night dedicated to the Royal Rumble, to start the company's Road to WrestleMania in the best possible way. After completing a massive three decades in WWE, The Phenom had his final farewell at Survivor Series 2020.
Since then, fans have been wanting to see him take his rightful place in the Hall of Fame. With WrestleMania 38 set to take place in Dallas, this could be the perfect opportunity to honor him for his contributions to the business and induct him into the Hall of Fame.
His appearance at Royal Rumble next weekend could be for the same as Vince McMahon's promotion usually starts announcing the Hall of Fame inductees around this time.
