During this week’s WWE NXT episode, the legendary Undertaker made a surprise appearance, gracing the ring with his presence.
His arrival added to the stacked lineup of WWE’s gold brand, which was fiercely competing against AEW Dynamite:
Title Tuesday. To boost viewership, WWE featured notable stars like Cody Rhodes, John Cena, Paul Heyman, and Asuka, all of whom joined the NXT roster for the night.
In the main event, Carmelo Hayes emerged victorious against Bron Breakker. However, Breakker’s competitive spirit didn’t waver, and he retaliated by attacking Hayes after the match.
He defiantly declared to the audience that regardless of the outcome, he remained the ultimate badass in WWE.
Breakker’s bold statement caught the attention of none other than The Undertaker, appearing in his iconic ‘American Bad Ass’ persona, riding into the ring on his motorcycle. The crowd erupted with excitement at the Phenom’s arrival.
Undeterred, Breakker challenged The Undertaker, dismissing him as an old-timer and asserting his dominance as the sole badass in the arena.
The Undertaker observed Breakker, acknowledging he’s been watching Breakker and he’s special but “it ain’t today.”
With a powerful punch, he brought Bron down, following it up with a devastating chokeslam that left the former NXT Champion stunned.
The Undertaker shared a valuable advice telling Breakker, “Young fella’, ya’ see – ima’ give you a little advice. There’s always an older, bigger, badder, badass waitin’ around the corner. You just met the baddest of ’em all.”
In a surprising turn of events, The Undertaker raised Carmelo Hayes’ hand, signaling his approval and bringing the show to a close.
The appearance was especially noteworthy considering The Undertaker’s sporadic presence since his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020.
After his final match against AJ Styles that same year, he had only made occasional appearances, the most recent one being on Raw is XXX in January, where he shared the stage with Bray Wyatt.
