The Undertaker and Sting Expected to Return at WWE SummerSlam

WWE Battleground may be only a few days away but all of the talk is about SummerSlam. A recent report confirms rumors that not one but two big superstars are expected to return for the biggest party of the summer.

Rumors started swirling earlier in the week about the Undertaker returning as early as Battleground. While those rumors are red hot, the only confirmed report places the Undertaker at SummerSlam. Dave Meltzer confirmed the report on several posts and podcasts on F4WOnline.com.

Meltzer reported that the Undertaker’s angle is expected to be a part of SummerSlam as he is included in future advertisements. While Undertaker’s role has not been confirmed, most suspect that he will be wrestling. A recent tweet posted a picture of Undertaker training and he looked to be in great shape and ready for an upcoming match.

Undertaker was rumored to be slotted with Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 32. Meltzer shot down that report in a recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Meltzer and others suspect that Undertaker will pick back up on his feud with Brock Lesnar and seek revenge. Most have commented that it was no coincidence that Paul Heyman recently started mentioning the streak, WWE announcers have made recent mentions of Undertaker and Kane as brothers, and Lesnar broke Kane’s leg this week.

This goes back to something I blogged about shortly after WrestleMania 30. I predicted that a Lesnar vs. Undertaker rematch would be absolutely huge. I do think it would have been bigger at Mania 31, yet I still think there is a lot of money on the table here. Many have predicted that Undertaker will get involved in the finish of the Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar match at Battleground. The waters are a little muddied with Lesnar and Heyman as babyfaces, although fans booed Heyman recently when he did bring up the end of the streak.

The Undertaker isn’t the only big name reported to return at SummerSlam. Sting is expected back in the ring at SummerSlam. Meltzer also confirmed those reports. Meltzer mentioned on a recent podcast that Sting was slotted to wrestle someone who was recently injured, thus causing a change in the booking. I can only guess who Sting will wrestle but it could be anyone at this point.

The WWE are really bringing out the big guns here for SummerSlam. This could also explain why the company bumped Lesnar vs. Rollins up from SummerSlam to Battleground. Regardless, with Lesnar, Undertaker, and Sting all expected on SummerSlam, the event will likely go down as the biggest SummerSlam event in recent memory.
