The Undertaker is likely wrestling again the next time WWE goes to Saudi Arabia. He had agreed to wrestle in May and now that the event was moved to June it’s still likely he will be working that show.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter gave more insight in the on-going situation between Taker and Vince McMahon. The reason why The Dead Man had to cancel his Inside The Ropes Q&A was WWE’s call. He fought to keep doing the shows and to at least do the autograph signing portion of things.
It was thought at first that there is no way that Undertaker would so Starrcast and that was the tipping point for Vince McMahon. He got very angry about it, but eventually calmed down. The Inside The Ropes gig was booked before Taker agreed to do the Saudi Arabia show, but at the time when he agreed to the Inside The Ropes tour he thought his career was over.
Undertaker thought his career was over after the match in Australia and started lining up outside paydays. After the Starrcast thing went public, Vince got mad and when things calmed down between the two, WWE made him an offer he couldn’t refuse financially and part of the contract was an agreement he could no longer do those type of dates.
It appears that The Undertaker will be towing the company line for a little bit longer. The amount of money WWE is paying Taker to keep him exclusive must be a lot because he was making at least $25,000 an hour to sign autographs.
