WWE Examiner has learned from a reliable source that both the Undertaker and Triple H will be on hand tonight as World Wrestling Entertainment presents Elimination Chamber at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.
At this time, it is likely but not confirmed that one or both legendary superstars will return in some capacity – Triple H to promote his new film “The Chaperon” and The Undertaker to begin his official promoted return tomorrow night on WWE Monday Night Raw.
* WWE WANTS JOHN CENA AND THE MIZ TO SWITCH ROLES?
As the last pay-per-view before WrestleMania 27, sources believe The Undertaker and Triple H will return imminently, most likely even tonight, to set the stage for their WrestleMania 27 appearances.
The final promoted card for tonight’s WWE pay-per-view:
WWE Championship Match
– The Miz (c) vs. Jerry Lawler
Elimination Chamber Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
– Edge (c) vs. Kane vs. Wade Barrett vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Yet-To-Be-Announced Competitor
Elimination Chamber Match for a WWE Championship shot at Wrestlemania 27
– CM Punk vs. John Cena vs. John Morrison vs. Randy Orton vs. R-Truth vs. Sheamus
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
– Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov (c) vs. Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel
Non-Title Singles Match
– Alberto Del Rio vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston
The WWE Universe began buzzing last Friday in response to the news that World Wrestling Entertainment executives have apparently decided on a storyline for the Undertaker at WrestleMania 27. And it could result in one of the biggest WrestleMania matches in the event’s 27-year history.
* WWE AND STING ARE ‘SCREWING’ WRESTLING FANS WITH ELABORATE HOAX
Given Triple H’s plan to retire “soon,” the WWE may hive the “Game” his opportunity sooner than anyone expected.
As it now stands, The Undertaker will face Triple H in a “career vs. streak” match. Shawn Michaels will serve as the guest referee, a situation rife with drama as WWE fans will be forced to speculate if HBK will either “screw” The Undertaker (the man who ended his career at WrestleMania 26) or count the shoulders of his best friend (Triple H) to the mat, effectively ending his career while extending The Undertaker’s streak.
It could high drama in Atlanta, Georgia on April 3rd, at WrestleMania 27.
* THE ROCK AND STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN WILL WORK WRESTLEMANIA 27 TOGETHER
On January 26th, WWE Examiner reported that WWE CEO Vince McMahon informed an individual who reported to pro wrestling blog Rajah that current WWE WrestleMania 27 plans call for The Undertaker to wrestle Wade Barrett in the main event. Those plans have now been scrapped.
Last year, the Undertaker became 18-0 at WrestleMania against Shawn Michaels – HBK’s final match in WWE.
* THE ROCK RETURNS… BUT WILL HE WRESTLE AGAIN?
Given The Undertaker’s decreased health, he is no longer expected to perform on the same level as previous years. Wrestling Wade Barrett of WWE SmackDown would have reduced expectations for the match and guarantee The Undertaker a relatively easy contest and likely victory. That may be difficult to pull off if The Undertaker is challenged by Triple H.
