Great news for UK fans and beyond. WWE has announced that The Undertaker will hold its own event on Friday, September 2 in Cardiff, the day before the big Clash at the Castle event. This is the "1 DeadMan Show" format, already successfully tested during the SummerSlam weekend in Nashville.
The Hall of Famer will tell unpublished stories about his career and answer questions from the audience. The event will be held inside the New Theater in Cardiff, which has a capacity of over 1000 people. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
It will be the first time ever that Undertaker will hold such an event outside of American soil.
New details on The Undertaker
The presence of The Undertaker in Cardiff, however, should not make WWE fans dream. At the moment there are no plans for his cameo on Clash at the Castle: John Cena, a recent guest at Wales Comic Con, has also confirmed that he will not be part of the big British event.
Undertaker was recently the protagonist of the last match of Ric Flair, filmed at ringside together with Mick Foley, Bret Hart and DDP. The Deadman then posed with Andrade backstage, a shot that quickly became viral. The AEW star said she received great advice from her and compliments for her performance with the "Nature Boy"
We remind you that Clash at the Castle will mark the return of WWE to a UK stadium after more than thirty years. The last big event, in chronological order, was SummerSlam 92, which went down in history as the main event, valid for the intercontinental title, between British Bulldog and Bret Hart.
There are currently no plans to change the Clash at the Castle cartel match, which should remain a "one on one" battle between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. The Scot is also working with BT Sport on a special project (most likely a documentary) in which his wife will also appear.
Dan Madigan recently recalled how WWE canceled plans for The Undertaker to face Mordecai at WrestleMania 21. “‘Taker liked the idea of having a religious zealot who is the complete opposite of who he is,” Madigan said.
“I think it would have matched up well and stuff if it just had the legs to go. If they pushed it, they should have kept pushing it. I think they got nervous with something, plus there was an incident with Kevin outside of the ring, a little dust-up at a bar room, which didn’t help”.
