It was announced by WWE today that The Undertaker’s “Final Farewell” will take place at WWE Survivor Series on November 22. That date is exactly 30 years after The Undertaker’s WWE debut at Survivor Series 1990.
WWE sent out a press release today promoting The Undertaker’s Final Farewell.
UNDERTAKER®’S FINAL FAREWELL SET FOR WWE® SURVIVOR SERIES®
STAMFORD, Conn., November 6, 2020 – Undertaker’s Final Farewell will recognize The Phenom’s legendary 30-year career at Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 22, streaming at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
One of the most iconic Superstars in WWE history and a sports-entertainment phenomenon, Undertaker made his WWE debut at Survivor Series on Nov. 22, 1990. From his debut with Brother Love to his critically-acclaimed match against AJ Styles at this year’s WrestleMania, Undertaker has been involved in some of the most memorable moments in WWE history. The Deadman rose to the top of sports-entertainment with multiple WWE Championship reigns and recorded an astounding undefeated streak at WrestleMania by winning his first 21 matches at the annual extravaganza.
As part of Undertaker’s Final Farewell and 30th anniversary, WWE is celebrating “30 Years of The Deadman” throughout November, including recently debuted documentaries “Meeting The Undertaker“ and “WWE Untold: The Phenom and The Legend Killer” on WWE Network as well as “The Mortician: The Story of Paul Bearer,” which premieres this Sunday, and “Brothers of Destruction,” which premiered in October at the Austin Film Festival and will stream on WWE Network on Sunday, November 15. In addition, Undertaker will be a special guest on “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions” immediately following Survivor Series.
The celebration will also include special Undertaker photo galleries, video highlights and features on WWE.com, Undertaker TikTok Challenge, Instagram filter and Snapchat lens, two exclusive product opportunities with Funko only available at Amazon, feature space in 2,300 Walmart’s including an exclusive Mattel action figure, national media appearances including “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and blocks of primetime programming from WWE’s distribution partners around the world dedicated to Undertaker.
In addition to Undertaker’s Final Farewell, Survivor Series is the one night of the year where Raw squares off against SmackDown. WWE’s Fall Classic is highlighted by: WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns taking on WWE Champion Randy Orton; Raw Women’s Champion Asuka vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks; Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day against SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits; United States Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn; as well as men’s and women’s 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Matches.
What does that mean specifically? We don’t know right now other than confirmation that Undertaker will be at Survivor Series. My guess is some heel wrestlers are probably going to take some Chokeslams and Tombstones, but other than that, it’s a chance for Undertaker to confirm his retirement.
