Ahead of his scheduled appearance on this coming Tuesday’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live from Madison Square Garden, The Undertaker appeared on yesterday’s edition of ESPN College GameDay.
College GameDay is a weekly preview show that covers college sports such as American football and basketball.
The video below shows ‘Taker, donning a Texas Longhorns shirt, making his entrance onto the show:

He would go on to discuss Texas football with the hosts ahead of their match against the Louisiana State University Tigers.
The Tigers won the game 45-38.
Despite his current battle with WWE over the use of the term, Ric Flair might be happy to see that the ‘Phenom’ believes he is “the man”:

As noted, Undertaker is scheduled for an appearance on this coming Tuesday’s SmackDown from MSG, reportedly a move made for storyline reasons, although we don’t yet know specifics.
In contrast, fellow WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin will be appearing on Monday’s Raw, which also emanates from MSG, but he was reportedly added purely to drive ticket sales and ratings.
It was announced on last week’s Raw that Austin will moderate a Universal Title contract signing for Clash of Champions with champion Seth Rollins and challenger Braun Strowman.
The two were set to sign the contract last week, but the segment was crashed by the O.C.
We will of course have live coverage of Raw and SmackDown Live, as well as Clash of Champions, here at WrestleTalk.com this coming week.
