Ladies and Gentlemen, brace yourselves for a thrilling climax to the week-long WWE spectacle. As the thunder of wrestling fervor echoes across arenas, the company aired a cryptic ad during Friday’s WWE SmackDown show in St. Louis, Missouri that indicated we might see the “Deadman” rise once again. Yes, the chilling church bell at the ad’s end hinted strongly at the possible appearance of WWE Hall of Famer, The Undertaker, at the NXT show on Tuesday, October 10th.
Not merely a stab in the dark, this notion received further fuel from PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, who disclosed that undisclosed sources confirmed Undertaker’s scheduled presence at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida on the same day. While the capacity of his role remains uncertain, wrestling enthusiasts are abuzz with anticipation.
This forthcoming NXT show gains even more significance as it goes head-to-head against AEW Dynamite’s Title Tuesday show, which has been preempted from their normal Wednesday timeslot due to MLB Playoffs coverage on TBS. All eyes are fixed on NXT show to see if the “Phenom” graces it with his ominous presence.
On another front, last Friday’s SmackDown also unfolded a revised feature in the WWE Fastlane 2023 card, set to take place on October 7th at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The spotlight shone on a tantalizing Six-Man Tag Team match featuring The LWO (Santos Escobar, Rey Mysterio & mystery partner) squaring off against the formidable Bobby Lashley & The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford).
The identity of the mystery partner, though originally speculated to be either Joaquin Wilde or Cruz Del Toro, was shrouded in mystery again when Mysterio revealed in a backstage update that injuries suffered during a brawl with the Street Profits had taken Wilde and Del Toro out of contention for the Fastlane 2023 event. Mysterio assured that a solution was in the works, sparking questions about who the replacement will be.
So, as the wrestling world whirls in feverish excitement, every update only further whets the appetite of the fans. The potential Undertaker appearance, the sudden shifts in lineup, and the tantalizing promises of stunning matches keep the magic of wrestling alive and make us eager to witness what WWE Fastlane 2023 and the upcoming NXT show have in store.
