WWE had a few appearances from legends of the past at Elimination Chamber 2022 with Lita and Goldberg competing in matches, but reports suggest that another company icon was at one point supposed to appear – The Undertaker.
According to PWInsider The Undertaker did not travel to the Middle Eastern country for the show, but at one point he was going to be involved.
They said that plans called for The Undertaker to appear at Elimination Chamber in a non-wrestling capacity to celebrate his upcoming induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, which was announced by WWE earlier this week.
Plans allegedly called for ‘Taker to just make a cameo appearance, with PWInsider adding that this wasn’t going to be an angle, but evidently WWE decided against it as The Deadman didn’t get on a plane.
A video package for The Undertaker and his Hall of Fame spot highlighting his career in the company was played during the show, much to the delight of the Saudi crowd. Although, there is some speculation there was a big cheer because the crowd thought he was coming out.
Which WWE ‘Legends’ Did Appear At Elimination Chamber?
It certainly wasn’t a good day to be a WWE Hall of Famer in Saudi Arabia as two inducted wrestlers took part in matches at the event and both of them walked out of the Elimination Chamber having lost.
The first was Goldberg who took on Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title, but despite wins over Kevin Owens and The Fiend Bray Wyatt for the title in the past, it was Roman Reigns who would emphatically topple Goldberg by choking him out with a Guillotine, his first ever submission loss.
The other Hall of Famer in action was Lita. She took on RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch for the title but ultimately ended up failing to capture it after getting Manhandle Slammed by The Man herself. She did get a standing ovation though.
