Rumor Killer On Big Undertaker Match At SummerSlam

The Undertaker will team up with Roman Reigns this Sunday at Extreme Rules, where they'll go up against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre in a tag team match.

There is already speculation that The Deadman and McIntyre will one-on-one down the road. In fact, Taker vs. McIntyre is already being advertised for the Aug. 11 SummerSlam pay-per-view in Toronto.

But according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t WrestlingInc.com), there aren't any plans in place for a match between Undertaker and The Scottish Psychopath.

The two superstars may not be square off in Toronto next month, but WWE insider Brad Shepard recently reported that there were plans for Undertaker to go up against McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 next year. Shepard noted that The Deadman even handpicked McIntyre to be his opponent for next year. Of course, it remains to be seen if that match will actually happen.

SummerSlam is only a month away, so we'll find out in short time if Undertaker will compete. He missed WrestleMania 35, but The Phenom took part at last month's Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia, defeating Goldberg in the main event. Sunday will mark his second match in only a matter of weeks.

So would WWE have Undertaker gear up for his third match over a two-month span? He is 54 years of age and has been fighting through numerous injuries - so it might be best for Undertaker to have more time off before his next big match comes around.

For now, all eyes are on Sunday at Undertaker teams up with the man who defeated him on the Grandest Stage of Them All two years ago. After that, we should find out in short time when Undertaker's next match will be - and who he will be up against.

What This Means

If Undertaker isn't facing McIntyre, it's anybody's guess who the latter will face in Toronto next month. McIntyre is in the midst of a big push, but his program with Reigns can't continue much longer - since they're on opposite brands. There are plenty of options on the table for McIntyre, but we'll just have to say how things play out after Sunday.
