WWE Made The Undertaker An Offer He Couldn't Refuse

It's no secret that WWE was not happy after learning that Taker signed on to appear at Starrcast II and the Inside The Ropes events in the UK.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Undertaker believed his WWE career was over after Triple H beat him at the WWE Super Showdown in Australia last October. The new deal essentially prevents other companies from booking Taker but he will keep his Starrcast commitment and will still do the meet and greet for Inside The Ropes. After the Starrcast thing went public, Vince got mad and when things calmed down between the two, WWE made him an offer he couldn't refuse financially and part of the contract was an agreement he could no longer do those type of dates.

Undertaker will now no longer be able to make appearances outside of WWE due to the new contract, although the Starrcast signing is locked and is a contract he can't legally break. Mick Foley is also replacing him there as well. The promoters would have had to refund all tickets and it could have really hurt them moving forward, and Taker did not want to do that. Undertaker was receiving offers in the $20,000 to $25,000 per hour range for appearances.

The Monday Night Raw appearance the night after WrestleMania 35 was his first appearance under the new contract.

Undertaker has reportedly agreed to work WWE's next event in Saudi Arabia which is expected to take place on 6/7. A match with Elias has been rumored after their recent run-in on RAW, but that could have been changed now that Elias was moved to SmackDown in the Superstar Shakeup. New subscribers can also receive free classic issues.
