Cody Rhodes and Steve Austin are not listed on the current WWE Raw runsheet, FightfulSelect.com reports, but ‘this does not mean anything’ and they could return. Logan Paul is listed to return tonight.
Sadly, we won’t see The Undertaker on Raw, as he is retired. The Undertaker is truly in the world of professional wrestling as he gave more than thirty years of his life to the business. He ended his career at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view back in 2020, bringing an end to his legacy. The Undertaker’s Elimination Chamber rumors were also leaked recently.
The Phenom has worked with the top pro wrestlers in the history of the business throughout the years and has had great matches with many of them. After shedding literal blood, sweat and teras, The Undertaker was recently announced to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame ceremony his year. For many fans and pro wrestlers alike, this was a long time coming as he had worked very hard and sacrificed his body for the pro wrestling business.
The Undertaker was not present during the WWE Elimination Chamber event and that is likely due to the fact he appeared during a Bad Bunny concert at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, where he came out riding a motorbike.
According to Ringside News, a tenured member of the creative team confirmed that “Undertaker was never booked” to be in Saudi Arabia. This would shoot down a report that suggested The Undertaker was going to appear during the WWE Elimination Chamber event.
In other Undertaker news, in speaking with SportsKeeda’s Riju Dasgupta, the former WCW Executive stated that there are only three wrestlers who are at the level of the Undertaker. Bischoff’s comments can be read below. Credit to the outlet for the following.
“I think anybody that says they’re surprised is kidding themselves,” said Bischoff. “I think we all knew it was going to happen. It was just a question of when. I don’t think anybody in this industry, outside of perhaps Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin, have had the career that Undertaker’s had. I would throw Ric Flair in that group as well.”
There was a report that Undertaker was planned for Elimination Chamber. They played a Hall of Fame video package for him, but he didn't show up.
Taker was in Texas for the Bad Bunny concert. We can confirm that there were never any plans for Taker to appear in Saudi at all.
