3. The Undertaker faces King Corbin at WWE Survivor Series 2020
The Boneyard Match, between Taker and AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, was a masterpiece from start to finish – the perfect contest for Taker to end his career but what if things come full circle for the master of the Chokeslam and he has his last WWE match at the same event he had his first.
During the “Tribute to The Undertaker” edition of SmackDown on June 26th, 2020, King Corbin cut a scathing promo on Taker – claiming The Phenom had been “stealing money” from the company for years and was “holding superior athletes (like himself) down for a long time”. Corbin berated the SmackDown superstars for paying homage to Taker, he ended the segment by declaring that Taker “sucked”.
If Taker does choose to have his last match this Sunday, Corbin would be a great opponent for him. The commentators could mention what the 2019 King of the Ring said earlier this year, thus giving him a reason the interrupt Taker – and challenge him to a match. Corbin will want to back up his words – proving that Taker is a thing of the past and he is the future.
Doing this on Taker’s special night would give Corbin nuclear heat, which will get him over more as a heel.
The match would not go the distance – similar to The Rock against Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32, short and sweet. Taker could hit a Big Boot, Chokeslam, and a Tombstone Piledriver – it would be great to see him hit that legendary finisher one last time.
Corbin has spoken about getting advice from Taker, noting that he was “very willing to help out” and “gave out some of his secrets” to becoming a better wrestler. It would be a great honor for Corbin to face Taker in his very last match, something he would cherish for the rest of his career.
