Well, this is interesting.
Looks like Undertaker won’t just be appearing at Cleveland Cavaliers games this Fall, as WWE and the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania are advertising the Dead Man for the SmackDown brand show there on Nov. 15, 2016.
BREAKING NEWS! The Undertaker returns to Wilkes-Barre on 11.15 for the 900th episode of @WWESmackDownLiv at @MoheganSunArena #WWEWILKESBARRE pic.twitter.com/okWlFNw1AH— Mohegan Sun Arena PA (@MoheganSunArena) November 2, 2016
While there’s no confirmation Taker will even appear on the televised portion of the show, the date is significant for a couple reasons.
- It’s the Survivor Series go home show, an event he debuted at 26 years ago.
- It’s the 900th episode of SmackDown, the show the Phenom was synonymous with during the first brand split era.
Rumors are, of course, already swirling about if he’ll play a role at the Nov. 20 pay-per-view (PPV), or if his appearance will be used to set-up his WrestleMania 33 angle.
And it seems like just yesterday we were freaking out about his being seen on crutches...
