Throughout last night’s Hell In A Cell PPV, WWE advertised this year’s upcoming Survivor Series as the 25th Anniversary of The Undertaker. He originally debuted on November 22, 1990 at the Survivor Series in Hartford, Connecticut.
At the end of last night’s PPV, Undertaker, after losing to Brock Lesnar, was attacked and beaten down by Bray Wyatt and his family: Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman. After the beatdown, Wyatt ordered his family members to carry Undertaker from the ring in an apparent kidnap storyline angle.
As noted above, with Survivor Series being Undertaker’s 25th anniversary, this storyline could possibly lead to a four on four tag team match at the event with the Wyatt Family versus The Undertaker and, as of writing, three mystery partners.
Here’s the video about WWE celebrating Undertaker’s 25 years at Survivor Series.

Ski’s Take – Reports online are already slating the end of last night’s Hell In A Cell, saying that it’s a rehash of an old Ministry of Darkness storyline from the Attitude Era. Me? I’m a glass half full kinda guy. I try and see the positives in everything. If it is a rehash of the old MoD storyline, then the positives I see is that this time, Undertaker is the man in peril.
At this year’s Wrestlemania, Bray faced The Undertaker, and in one of his promo’s leading up to the event, Bray called him a shell of his old self. He wasn’t to be feared. This could be a continuation of that, with Bray in the cult leader role that Undertaker himself was in all those years ago.
If there is a 4v4 or a traditional 5v5 Survivor Series match, who would team up and help Taker? Has he been kidnapped? Will Kane, with no corporate duties to contend with, step up and help his brother in need? Will Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose continue their war with the Wyatt’s and help save “The Consciousness of the WWE?” Do you have any idea? Let me know in the comments below.
