We go to the ring and Mick Foley is out. He talks about his history with The Undertaker and calls him to the ring for one last encounter on RAW. Foley says he needs Taker to take a trip from the Darkside, to be here… right here in New Orleans, Louisiana. Foley goes on and the lights go out. Fans pop but Stephanie McMahon’s music hits instead and out she comes.
Stephanie apologizes to the fans and says Foley has forced her to give him his Performance Review publicly. She says the crowd reaction is a result of Foley’s inability to produce The Undertaker. She runs down some of Foley’s failures and asks Foley what he has to say for himself. She asks what she should do next. Foley says he’s sorry… the gong hits and the lights go out. Fans pop as the music starts up and out comes The Undertaker.
Fans chant Taker’s name as he takes a mic. Taker says he’s back. It’s important that the world knows he will be entering the Royal Rumble. We see Braun Strowman watching backstage. Taker says he answers to no one, he goes where he wants, when he wants. Nobody controls The Undertaker. Taker gets in Stephanie’s face, says “no one” and the crowd pops. Taker says he’s returned to the city where The Streak ended and he suffered his worst defeat. Taker says his journey continues, to the Royal Rumble. Taker says he’s dug 29 holes for 29 souls and will be bringing The Dark Side to the Rumble match. Taker says after he wins, he will return to the main event at WrestleMania 33 and if anyone, and he means anyone, stands in his way… they will… Rest In Peace.
Couple of videos from the appearance…..
Gr8 segment. Taker’s entrance was the usual awesome awe inspiring legendary entrance it always is. Loved his promo, every word.
