It was reported yesterday that WWE would be airing a documentary about The Undertaker and Kane that will premiere on WWE Network on Sunday, November 15. It is part of WWE’s “30 Days of the Deadman” programming lineup to honor 30 years of The Undertaker as a WWE superstar. The 30-year mark will be in November around Survivor Series. Earlier in the year, we saw WWE Network’s incredible “The Last Ride” documentary series about Undertaker and now they are providing us with even more content.
Commemorate the 30-year anniversary of The Undertaker’s WWE debut with 30 Days of The Deadman, a monthlong celebration that begins Sunday, Oct. 25, on the award-winning WWE Network and all WWE digital and social platforms.
WWE was forever changed on Nov. 22, 1990, when the funeral dirge signaling The Undertaker’s arrival rang out for the very first time at Survivor Series. Since then, The Phenom has etched one unforgettable moment after another, carving a legacy in sports-entertainment that has no rival.
WWE Network’s 30 Days of The Deadman celebration will feature a full month of original programming dedicated to The Undertaker. A new documentary will be released every Sunday, capped off by The Undertaker’s much-anticipated return to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on Sunday, Nov. 22.
As you can see below, there will be a special Undertaker show on f I’ve consecutive Sundays. The final one on November 22 will be Undertaker’s second appearance on the Steve Austin “Broken Skull Sessions” interview show. That’s also the date of Survivor Series 2020, so look for WWE to promote it heavily.
