Over the past few days, there has been several stories involving The Undertaker that have wrestling fans questioning his future in the ring. Last month, it was already announced that on October 6th, Undertaker will face Triple H live on the WWE Network from Australia. Following that news, Madison Square Garden sent out the following Tweet over Twitter:

We now also know who he will be both teaming with and facing on July 7th. Taker will be teaming with Roman Reigns & Braun Strowman to face Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin, and Elias in the main event. This match will mark the first time Undertaker has appeared at MSG since Bret Hart Appreciation Night on September 25th, 2010, when he lost to Kane in the main event.
Following that Tweet, WrestleVotes tweeted out the following information:
Texting With A Source: The Undertaker has been presented w/ a story & match for SummerSlam. Source said him working MSG next month along with Australia in October should be a good sign for SummerSlam. I can add that the idea is something Taker was pushing for at one point. #TWAS

There is no word yet on who the potential opponent might be, but with the hint of it being against someone in a match that he wanted, we can only speculate that it will be a big name that he has not faced in his career. WrestleVotes has been pretty accurate as of late with their backstage news and stories, so this is something we will be following very closely.
Jester’s Jest: I honestly don’t know what to think about the line of thinking to have Undertaker team up with Roman Reigns. I can see Braun Strowman, but why on earth would WWE include the man that claimed Undertaker’s yard from him at Wrestlemania? Are the fans just supposed to forget about that match ever happening?
As for the SummerSlam match, there is already massive speculation that it will be Undertaker vs Sting. This is a huge match that both superstars have pushed for in their respective careers to make happen. It would also be a massive draw for both ticket sales and viewership. As stated in the article though, we will have to wait and see.
