The Undertaker returned to a WWE ring on Saturday, teaming up with Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman in six-man tag action.
Even though WWE's events at Madison Square Garden are rarely televised anymore, the promotion still has a long, storied, and special relationship with the arena. It's where Bruno Sammartino defended the WWE Championship almost 200 times, it was the backdrop of the first-ever WrestleMania, and is basically considered the spiritual home of Vince McMahon's company.
WWE's latest visit to MSG took place this past Saturday and it was a very special show indeed. Dolph Ziggler defended his Intercontinental Title in a triple threat match against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, a bout we are all hoping makes it to television eventually. Plus, Ronda Rousey made her MSG debut, forcing Nia Jax to tap out after locking in her patented armbar.
The biggest moment of the night came during the evening's main event. It marked the return of The Undertaker, the first time he has competed or even been seen in WWE since vanquishing Rusev at Greatest Royal Rumble. The Deadman joined forces with Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman to take on the heel team of Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, and Elias. Naturally, it was Team Taker who left MSG with the victory.
It Was The Phenom himself who earned the win for his team, delivering a Tombstone Piledriver to Owens while his teammates watched on. After the match, Undertaker, Reigns, and Strowman took part in a three-way staredown. The trio all has history with each other so tensions were understandably high despite their win. Eventually though, they all shook hands and did not come to blows.
After his match with John Cena at WrestleMania 34, there was talk that The Undertaker would be competing more for WWE and it would appear those rumors were true. This is his third match so far this year and he has at least one more scheduled. That will be in Australia later this year when he takes on Triple H at Super Show Down. You would have to imagine that a rematch with Cena is on the cards somewhere down the line too.
