Report: WWE possibly interested in Undertaker working SummerSlam

"The Deadman" at the biggest party of the summer? It just might be happening.

When WrestleMania 29 came and went and Undertaker, who upped his streak to 21 and once again had the best match on the card, came away relatively healthy, the decision was made to keep him around for an extra month or so. Seeing as he's business and a respected veteran of the locker room, it's kind of a big deal that he helped put over The Shield before heading back into hibernation.

But that hibernation may not last very long.

From Bryan Alvarez in the latest edition of Figure Four Weekly (subscription required but recommended):

It appears Undertaker is off TV for the foreseeable future after being destroyed by the Shield on Smackdown. There is interest in having him do a match at SummerSlam if they can get it to work out.

The idea of Undertaker working SummerSlam is a scintillating one, and it makes sense for WWE considering its options. The Rock was rumored to be working the show at one point but the injuries he suffered in his match with John Cena have him contemplating retirement, one that would actually stick this time.

As if they ever do.

"The Deadman," meanwhile, is still banged up but as full of vigor as he's been in years. Or at least that seems to be the case, as any fan with two fully functioning eyes can tell he's been operating with fire in his appearances on WWE television this year.

Let's assume he works SummerSlam: Who should the promotion set him up in a match with? Perhaps something else with The Shield and Team Hell No? Or maybe a hot singles match we haven't seen yet?
