The Undertaker debuted at WWE Survivor Series 1990, so this year’s Survivor Series will be his 30-year anniversary as a character in the promotion.
There are few wrestlers who have reached the heights of the Undertaker in WWE. At WrestleMania 36 earlier this year, he showed that he can still be an asset to the company in the right kind of matches, producing a wonderful cinematic match with AJ Styles on the two-night affair’s first night.
On Nov. 22, WWE will air Survivor Series 2020, which falls on the same exact date as ‘Taker’s on-screen debut in the promotion 30 years earlier in 1990.
The Undertaker’s debut in WWE is legendary, so it would make a ton of sense for the company to honor him at this year’s Survivor Series.
According to a report from WrestleVotes, the entire Survivor Series 2020 Pay Per View will be “built around” it being Undertaker’s 30th anniversary in WWE.
The Undertaker will appear but not wrestle at WWE Survivor Series 2020
But critically, WrestleVotes reports that ‘Taker will not wrestle at Survivor Series “as of now”.
The phrasing leaves it open for ‘Taker to possibly compete at the event, but it sounds a lot wiser for him to do something else.
WrestleVotes states that he will, however, make a live appearance at the Pay Per View, which should be exciting for fans.
It’s nice for WWE to honor the Undertaker as a legend by having a 30th anniversary celebration for him at Survivor Series, but hopefully there’s also plenty of focus on the matches at hand. We could have some great storylines emerging from the show in the five-on-five matches, as well as some dream champion vs. champion vs. champion matches. Imagine Sasha Banks/Bayley vs. Io Shirai vs. Asuka.
Or how about a full-on faction war between RETRIBUTION and the Hurt Business?
Nevertheless, we’ll keep our eye out for more updates regarding the Undertaker’s role at Survivor Series, because it sounds like there will be some big moments planned for him.
