He walks again. There are legends in wrestling and then there are the real legends. In WWE, there are very few who can hold a candle to the Undertaker. While there are people who have been bigger stars and in more important roles, the idea of having someone wrestle for the company for nearly thirty years is unthinkable. Undertaker is still around and now we know where he will be appearing next.
As announced on WWE.com, the Undertaker will be appearing on the September 10 SmackDown Live from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. This is the first time that Undertaker will appear in the arena on a SmackDown Live in his career. The announcement comes after news that tickets to the events are not selling well. There is no word on what Undertaker will be doing on the show.
Undertaker has been a special attraction there before. Check out Undertaker in MSG last year:
Opinion: That really is the kind of attraction that should draw a crowd, though you never can tell with WWE these days. Things have been getting better on television as of late, but at some point you have to have that transfer over into ticket sales. Having Undertaker on the show will help that, though it would be better to not have to need a special attraction like him to bring the crowds that much higher.
Will WWE sell the arenas out? What else would draw an audience? Let us know in the comments below.
