The Undertaker Not Being Used At WWE SummerSlam This Year?

While there is still a month left for WWE officials to change their minds, it looks like The Undertaker won't be featured on the card for this year's WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view.

Dave Meltzer noted on an episode of Wrestling Observer Radio this weekend that the latest on the situation with The Dead Man is that he is still not scheduled for WWE SummerSlam 2019 next month, which makes his participation at the recent WWE Extreme Rules 2019 PPV a bit confusing considering that the original thought was that one would build to the other.

It was noted that WWE has plans for WWE SummerSlam 2019 in terms of the matches they have in mind for the full lineup, and it does not currently include The Phenom.

Whether or not things change between now and the PPV remains to be seen, as the card is always "subject to change" (read the fine print!), however if they do, we will of course keep you posted right here at eWrestling.

The current lineup in terms of officially announced matches thus far for the WWE SummerSlam 2019 PPV looks as follows:


* Brock Lesnar (C) vs. Seth Rollins (WWE Universal Title)
* Becky Lynch (C) vs. Natalya (RAW Women's Title)
* Bayley (C) vs. Ember Moon (SmackDown Women's Title)

WWE SummerSlam 2019 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, August 11th from Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
