P.S. The above link has a lot of pics of Taker too.
* A promo from The Undertaker aired to promote his match tonight.
* Kane and The Undertaker defeated Luke Harper and Braun Strowman. Big pops for Taker and Kane for their entrances. Kane was beat down most of the match. Taker got a beer while on the apron, chugged it and rallied for the tag. He came in and went at it with Harper, kind of botching Snake Eyes. Harper took a DDT and a leg drop but kicked out at 2. Taker chokeslammed him but turned around to Braun coming back in. Kane came to assist and they tried for a double chokeslam but he fought them off. He hit the ropes but Kane and Taker dumped him to the floor. Taker turned around to a chokeslam from Harper. Harper dumped Kane to the floor but turned around and got caught in Hell’s Gate, tapping out to end the match. Taker and Kane posed under a spotlight to end the match
Not that Taker always has to be the closing match, in fact knowing how he puts business first and ahead of himself, he probably would not want to always close out shows, but since this is Taker’s first live event in 2 years and his Mexico appearances are rarer than in US appearances, plus the fact that this is the first time the Brothers Of Destruction have been together since RAW 1,000 in 2013, I figured this match would close out the show. Surprised it didn’t. If I had to guess why, I assume it’s either because Braun Strowman, who’s still green is in the match. If it was Bray Wyatt, maybe it’d have closed the show. Or Taker wanted to leave Mexico to get home to his family. And if the latter is true, it’s possible he requested the match to happen when it did.
As for the beer chugging, I honestly thought his beer days were over. But I guess it’s just a rarity for him now. Nothing wrong with that. He probably used it to cool off as wrestlers are usually sweating during and after matches.
Enjoy the pics and video clips.
