Baron Corbin Could Face The Undertaker At SummerSlam [Rumor]

Baron Corbin has been embroiled in a feud with Universal Champion Seth Rollins, but his next opponent and feud could be something even bigger.

According to wrestling insider Brad Shepard, WWE wants Undertaker to appear more frequently so that he can avoid "ring rust." Not only that, but there have been talks about having Undertaker and Corbin facing off at the SummerSlam pay-per-view.

Even though he didn't compete at WrestleMania 35, Undertaker has since made numerous appearances and doesn't seem ready to hang up the boots any time soon. He defeated fellow WWE legend Goldberg at the Super ShowDown event three weeks ago, and we'll see him in the ring again very shortly.

Undertaker will team up with Roman Reigns - who defeated him at WrestleMania 33 -- at Extreme Rules, where they'll go up against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre. The Deadman came to Reigns' rescue and fought the two men off after they engaged in an attack on The Big Dog.

Like Corbin, McIntyre has also been rumored to be part of a big push for a while, so going up against The Undertaker will help immensely. Both Mcintyre and Corbin have spent considerable time in the main event picture, but neither of them have endured Universal Championship reigns yet.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that it wouldn't make sense to have Undertaker compete at Extreme rules but not SummerSlam, so it wouldn't be a surprise if we saw The Phenom at the latter event as well. And a match against somebody like Corbin or McIntyre makes plenty of sense, with both trying to get over as main event heels.

What This Means

It's also been suggested that Undertaker could face McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, so the future Hall of Famer could indeed be tasked with aiding the pushes of McIntyre and Corbin. Both would be quality opponents for The Deadman, given their statuses as two of the top heels in WWE.
