Undertaker and Team Hell No vs. The Shield booked for Raw next week in London

Undertaker will work a match on Monday Night Raw next week when he hooks up with Team Hell No to take on The Shield in London, as announced on tonight's episode of Raw.

After finally moving on from their seemingly never-ending and completely pointless feud with Randy Orton, Sheamus, and Big Show, The Shield decided to turn their collective attention to Undertaker one night after he ran his WrestleMania record to 21-0 by defeating CM Punk.

And, of course, he was saved by his brother in destruction, Kane, and the "Big Red Monster's" partner in Team Hell No, Daniel Bryan.

This led to standoff of sorts and the tease of a payoff with a match between the two teams. But while Undertaker has been advertised for the April 23 episode of SmackDown in London, it was expected that would simply be for a dark match -- or even just an appearance -- to help drive ticket sales.

Well, since he'll already be in town, WWE revealed on tonight's episode of Raw that he'll be working a match on next Monday night's episode, teaming with Kane and Bryan to take on The Shield.

That's surprising for a number of reasons, the least of which is "The Deadman" actually wrestling on Raw again. It's interesting, really, that there was very real doubt he would work WrestleMania this year due to his declining health and not only did he work it but he came away from it with less injuries than the guy he worked against, CM Punk, and it still looks likely Punk will be taking time off while Undertaker will be wrestling.

Oh this crazy pro wrestling world.
