The Undertaker Reveals When He Learned About WWE WrestleMania 40 Appearance WWE

The Undertaker made an appearance at WWE WrestleMania 40 chokeslamming The Rock during the night two main event.

The moment (which can be seen below this news story) took place during the Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes match which saw the American Nightmare become the new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

Speaking on the Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker revealed when he found about about the plans, saying:

“It happened pretty spontaneously. We got to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

“I got a call on Tuesday from Triple H. ‘Hey, a lot of things are going on and a lot of thoughts are being put into this. Would you want to be part of it?’ ‘If it works and if I can be a help, I don’t know how, but if I can help, fine, whatever you guys need. Just let me know.’ ‘We don’t have anything yet, we’re just putting ideas together.’

“I don’t hear anything else until Thursday. I get a text from Michael Hayes. ‘We’re coming up with some ideas.’ ‘Cool, let me know.’ That was it.

“I’m at the One Deadman Show. I get a text from Paul Heyman. ‘Interesting.’ I told Paul originally, ‘This isn’t about me. If the guys want me involved in it, whatever I can do, let me know. If they don’t, it ain’t going to hurt my feelings. I’m good. Don’t feel like there is any pressure.’

“It had gone back and forth. I get a text during Sunday, and that’s when you see me get up. At that point, I knew there was a good chance.”

The Undertaker would reveal that got a text about a quarter of a way through Sunday’s WrestleMania 40 telling him that things were moving forward.

In the same episode of his podcast, The Undertaker said his WrestleMania 40 appearance gave him closure.

It has recently been revealed that Stone Cold Steve Austin was earmarked for the spot taken by The Undertaker but both parties “couldn’t reach a financial agreement.”
