What Will Happen During The Undertaker’s Farewell?
Mark Justice: This farewell is obviously a way to provide closure for Undertaker’s legendary career and official retirement from in-ring competition at the exact PPV he debuted. Since the WWE was incapable of building up a must-see PPV in a progressive manner with stars of the future, this company decided to take a shortcut at a ratings boost by advertising this PPV in a regressive manner with a major star from the past.
Nonetheless, there is a silver lining to all of this. Undertaker’s last match was against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Usually, a superstar’s last match results in a loss as a way of passing the torch to the next generation. Since Taker won this match, he did not put anyone over. Instead of burying King Corbin or Elias with a ChokeSlam or Tombstone PileDriver (which is something WWE would book), The Fiend should instead attack Undertaker and assure that he ‘rests in peace.’
Prediction: The Undertaker Will Pass The Torch To The Fiend
Kevin Parvizi: Look, the Undertaker is a legend, and I am not about to disrespect him and get hit with some sort of a supernatural curse. Like, as if 2020 hasn’t been bad enough for us already.
But nothing is happening at Survivor Series as far as the Undertaker is concerned. We might get a little showdown between Taker and AJ Styles or someone else, or we will get a nice interaction. The Fiend attacking the Undertaker and taking the torch? If Roman Reigns couldn’t take the torch after “retiring” that man in the main event of WrestleMania, that torch is staying unpassed until the flame flickers off.
It’s going to be a nice night for Undertaker fans and nostalgia, but I don’t see anything beyond that happening. And in many ways, it is good to set yourself up for low expectations.
Prediction: Absolutely nothing
