The Undertaker hasn’t been seen in the last few weeks, but he’s is set to make his return to WWE TV before his SummerSlam 2015 match against Brock Lesnar. Both wrestlers will appear on “Monday Night Raw” just six days before they’ll square off at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The last meeting between The Undertaker and Lesnar produced one of the most entertaining WWE segments of the year. When The Undertaker confronted Paul Heyman in the ring, Lesnar attacked the wrestler that cost him the WWE World Heavyweight Championship one night earlier at WWE Battleground. Almost every wrestler on the WWE roster was sent to break up the brawl, which eventually continued backstage.
WWE has been hyping The Undertaker vs. Lesnar as the biggest rematch of all time. While it might not exactly be that, the SummerSlam main event is certainly highly anticipated. Lesnar shocked the wrestling world when he broke The Undertaker’s unbeaten WrestleMania streak in April of last year, and the match is set to close out a pay-per-view that has been extended to four hours.
John Cena has been the company’s top star for the last decade, and it’s been confirmed that he’ll fight Seth Rollins with both the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the United States Championship on the line. But The Undertaker vs. Lesnar has been built up so much that even Cena’s title match won’t be the final match at SummerSlam.
While The Undertaker has been a staple at WrestleMania, he hasn’t had a SummerSlam match since 2008 when he defeated Edge. Lesnar has been dominant since returning in 2012, winning all three of his SummerSlam matches. He’s beaten three of WWE’s top stars at the No.2 PPV of the year, getting wins over Cena, Triple H and CM Punk.
Lesnar’s record isn’t perfect over the last three years, but his losses have been few and far between. He’s only been pinned twice in 13 matches during his second run with WWE.
