WWE held the Elimination Chamber PPV outside the USA this year. It was at the Jeddah Dome, Saudi Arabia. The PPV saw many good matches happen throughout the night, like the Women’s Elimination Chamber match, Becky Lynch vs Lita, etc. Also, WWE showed the Hall of Fame video of The Undertaker in the arena.
The fans in the arena started cheering the name of The Undertaker after watching the video. The Deadman is one reason WWE is famous worldwide. Saudi fans were hoping Taker to show up this year too for the last time at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Originally, The Undertaker was in talks to be in Saudi Arabia for an appearance. They planned him to be a part of a non-wrestling segment, celebrating his Hall of Fame induction after they showed the video. Maybe it was a last reception type segment from The Phenom to the fans of Saudi Arabia.
Apart from The Undertaker, another Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was also in talks to appear at Elimination Chamber. Angle was scheduled for 3-4 weeks prior to the Elimination Chamber event, obviously in a non-wrestling role.
PWInsider confirmed this news on their website yesterday. They planned both the legends to have an appearance on the show. However, The Undertaker did not make the trip to Saudi Arabia, so they dropped his segment from the show and showed only the video.
Kurt Angle’s return plans were canceled weeks ago, which canceled his segments and appearance at Elimination Chamber. It would have been great to see both the legends at the show, especially The Undertaker, after his Hall of Fame induction announcement.
