WrestleMania 32 was a few weeks ago and in one of the biggest matches of the night, The Undertaker defeated Shane McMahon to keep control of Monday Night Raw in the hands of Vince McMahon.
However, ever since ‘Mania, Undertaker has been nowhere to be seen, while Shane-O-Mac has been running Monday Night Raw – and also that one episode of SmackDown – with Triple H and Stephanie also out of the picture.
NO TAKER IN EUROPE
‘Taker was scheduled to appear on the WWE’s annual post-WrestleMania European tour, specifically the SmackDown at the O2 Arena in London, but was removed and replaced by Shane. Now, we might know why Undertaker wasn’t there. And it is incredible.
SCARED OF TERRORISTS
According to a report from the most recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s a rumour going round that ‘Taker pulled himself from the European Tour because he was scared of terrorist attacks.
No, seriously. Apparently, “The Deadman” has been spooked by the attacks in Paris and Belgium and refused to travel to Europe.
“For what it’s worth, the word going around WWE is that Taker decided against going on the tour, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, because of the recent terrorist activities in France and Belgium,” Wrestling Inc said.
This is just a rumour, but still it is pretty amazing.
“No word on if this was Taker’s legitimate reason but it should be noted that it came down to him being scheduled for just two events in England but he was pulled from those as well.”
Now, ‘Taker has a wife and kids so you can imagine him being cautious of pretty much anything. But this is a man who regularly puts himself in harms way just by getting inside the squared circle and he had a hell in a cell match just two weeks ago.
If this does turn out to be true, it will be yet another interesting tidbit in the career of The Undertaker and the WWE.
