WWE Hall of Famer Booker T gave his take on why he believes The Undertaker made a sudden return to WWE television.
He made it known that he thinks the reason is due to Taker being unhappy about his latest match that was heavily criticized. He elaborated on his mindset during his Hall of Fame Podcast.
Booker stated that no one thought Taker would be back this soon but he thinks Taker wants to get the memory of his match against Goldberg at Super ShowDown out of his mind and do something else as a re-do.
“So I say come back out, and wash that little dirt off of you, and give the people what they want to see. Is this The Undertaker’s last match? That is the one thing. If it is the last match then you don’t want it to go down like it did at Super ShowDown. You don’t want that for yourself, or for your kids, or legacy. So you say, ‘Hey man, I have to go out here and do a re-do.’
The Undertaker made his sudden return on Monday’s RAW when he made the save for Roman Reigns from Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre during their 2-on-1 Handicap Match.
WWE would later announce a tag team match that will see Taker and Reigns vs. McMahon & McIntyre take place at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event.
