Watch Undertaker’s MSG Return, Paul Heyman On Brock Lesnar – Daniel Cormier
– Undertaker made a rare live event appearance, teaming up with Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman in the main event from Madison Square Garden (MSG) against Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin and Elias. The final sequence saw Undertaker hit the tombstone on Owens for the victory. After the match, Reigns and Undertaker had a short stare-down. It concluded with Undertaker offering a handshake, which Reigns accepted.
Many though Reigns retired Undertaker at the conclusion of WrestleMania 33. That ended up not being the case as Undertaker returned at WrestleMania 34 to make quick work of John Cena. Since then, Undertaker got the better of Rusev in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble and will challenge Triple H at Super Show-Down from Australia on October 6.
Unlike previous years, Undertaker is working more than just WrestleMania season. He has been pitched a match for SummerSlam, but no word if he’s accepted and who the opponent would be.
Below is footage of Undertaker getting the win for his team from MSG and showing Reigns respect.

– Brock Lesnar wasn’t advertised for UFC 226, but his name will be something people associate with the event forever. After Daniel Cormier won the UFC Heavyweight Championship via first round KO, he cut a promo on Lesnar; who was sitting cage side.
This caused Lesnar to enter the Octagon and push Cormier as both went into WWE mode. The two traded words on the microphone and UFC President Dana White later said Lesnar vs. Cormier is the plan. Lesnar has also re-entered the USADA testing pool, so he should be ready to compete in six months. Whatever card those end up on, it has the chance to be the biggest MMA fight on pay per view.
Paul Heyman took to Twitter to congratulate Cormier, but also let him know that “The Beast” is coming for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
First of all, profound #RESPECT for @dc_mma, achieving his lifelong dream and cementing his legacy in @UFC. On a completely different note, just for the record … ahem …. BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCK LESNAR!!! #UFC226 @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar
