It had been previously reported that The Undertaker will be making an appearance at the 2nd Starrcast event, which will take place in Las Vegas on May 23-26. The event is also taking place at the same time and city that AEW is having their “Double or Nothing” event.
While most people are excited about this appearance, the boss is not.
According to the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Vince McMahon is upset about The Undertaker appearing at a non-WWE show.
Here are some of his greatest moments during his WWE career:
Starrcast founder, Conrad Thompson, who is also an announcer for AEW had the following to say regarding The Undertaker appearing on his show (courtesy of Sports Illustrated):
“I know people might assume this is an AEW event, but that is not true,” said Starrcast founder Conrad Thompson, whose convention is a weekend-long event featuring more than two dozen live wrestling-themed shows. “We have wrestlers appearing from every promotion from all over the world, and Starrcast isn’t just for All Elite Wrestling fans, it’s for all wrestling fans.
“The Undertaker is synonymous with wrestling and generations of wrestling fans have grown up with The Undertaker. We wanted to bring something unique to Las Vegas, and there isn’t anyone more special in this business than The Undertaker.”
“The Undertaker experience is its own standalone experience at Starrcast,” said Thompson, who expects a sell out when for the ’Taker event when it is made available later this month and recommended fans interested in attending acquire a platinum or gold bracelet this Friday at noon ET at Starrcast.com. “We are so proud to bring The Undertaker experience to fans this Memorial Day weekend at Starrcast II.”
If he isn’t doing anything and the price is right, why wouldn’t he do this? It could also be a way for him to build some more hype for himself leading into a match at this year’s WrestleMania, should he be having one.
