The Undertaker Signs New WWE Contract To Restrict Outside Appearances?

According to Dave Meltzer on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE have signed 'Taker to a new contract that will likely prevent him from announcing any new appearances at third-party events, though his existing Starrcast booking should remain intact.

Quote:
Anyone looking forward to The Undertaker making more non-WWE appearances following his much-hyped Starrcast II showing best brace themselves for disappointment, because it looks like Vince McMahon has locked 'The Deadman' down again.

This story comes on the back of news that Undertaker had been pulled from an upcoming Q&A tour in the United Kingdom, though it looks like he'll still be allowed to appear at meet and greets.

The 54-year-old's 2019 has been interesting so far. His Starrcast announcement came with rumours that he'd become a free agent, and these were followed by the usual premature retirement stories. 'Taker himself caused quite the storm by removing all references to WWE from his social media bios earlier this year, but it looks like he's back in the promotion's ecosystem, having re-emerged on the Raw after 'Mania.

Whether or not he'll actually wrestle again remains to be seen, but Undertaker has been linked with a match against Elias on WWE's next Saudi Arabian show.

All this for a match with Elias !

Just looked into the UK thing and that seems really odd.

Taker cancelled the Q&A part, but they now have Mick Foley to talk about his career. But Taker is still coming over but just for the photos and autographs??

YA LITTLE WEIRDOS!

Kinda funny how Taker stayed loyal for all these years, and then he does this near the end of his career.

Okay serious question, Taker was supposed to be at the Niagara Falls Comic Con on June 9th, just two days after his Saudi Arabia show. Between that and this new contract he just signed, is it a safe bet he's going to cancel the NFCC appearance? I wanted to meet him but I'm not going to risk it if he's likely to cancel.

From what I read, he's still going to do the bookings he already committed to, but he's not accepting any new bookings due to the WWE deal.

All this for the SA payday. Elias just happens to be the guy Vince wants him to squash.

Re: The Undertaker Signs New WWE Contract To Restrict Outside Appearances?

he'll be wrestling again, taker aint resisting those pay cheques otherwise he would be either retired or wrestling at mania.

He will be still active until at least next year now and probably until hes 60.

not sure what undertaker of 2002 would be making of his future self but he comes across like nothing short of a hyprocrite in 2019.

I don't blame the guy if Vince is willing to spend millions of dollars on him.

1.5M for two or three matches a year. Why should he turn that down?
