After missing out on WrestleMania for the first time in 19 years, The Undertaker surprised fans in Brooklyn last night by interrupting Elias' latest attempt to perform. The Deadman laid the singer out with his patented chokeslam/Tombstone combo, before menacingly posing and trotting back off into the night.
Though the skit seemed like a one-and-done deal as a simple follow-up to John Cena's similar intrusion on Sunday night, there's speculation that it could lead to, if not greater, at least more things.
Speaking on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer suggested 'Taker's cameo on Raw is tentatively designed to parlay into a match between the veteran and Elias come WWE's next show in Saudi Arabia.
"I presume that's the angle for the Saudi show," the journalist mused. "I was told he was going to be back doing [an angle]."
It was reported at the end of last month that The Phenom has already agreed to compete during WWE's next trip to the Middle East, and given his increasingly limited dates, it's perhaps safe to assume last night's beatdown was said angle.
We don't advise anyone holds their breath for a match beyond the two-moves of doom 'Taker dished out yesterday, mind.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
