The Undertaker and Edge to return for SmackDown’s landmark 900th episode
As SmackDown celebrates its milestone 900th episode at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Nov. 15, The Deadman rises to commemorate the momentous occasion, appearing in Wilkes Barre, Pa., for the first time in a decade.
The Undertaker has long been a cornerstone of Team Blue, and his emergence on this special episode of SmackDown LIVE is undoubtedly linked to The Phenom’s storied history with the brand. This marks The Undertaker’s first appearance in a WWE ring since he defeated SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania 32, so whatever The Deadman has planned, mere days before Raw and SmackDown LIVE collide at Survivor Series, you won’t want to miss it.
The 900th episode of SmackDown LIVE airs Nov. 15 at 8/7 C on USA Network. To experience it live, order tickets by clicking here.
It has also been announced that WWE Hall of Famer and SmackDown LIVE legend Edge will return to Team Blue for the 900th episode to host his always memorable talk show, “The Cutting Edge.” WWE.com has learned that The Rated R-Superstar will welcome SmackDown LIVE’s entire 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men's Elimination Match team: SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon, who agreed to fill the final spot on the team last week; WWE World Champion AJ Styles; Dean Ambrose; New Wyatt Family members Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt; as well as team mascot James Ellsworth. It is possible for Edge to contain this group’s combustible energy? Can these five competitors and their chinless inspiration possibly co-exist against Team Red at Survivor Series? Well, “The Cutting Edge” has never been known for being peaceful, and we are not willing to bet it will be next week.
In addition, following another heated altercation last week, the captain of the 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women's Elimination Match, Nikki Bella, will square off against longstanding adversary Carmella. Will The Fearless Nikki finally teach some respect to The Princess of Staten Island?
And it will start at 8/ 7 C with an Intercontinental Championship Match, as Dolph Ziggler would defend his title in a major rematch against The Miz. Can The A-Lister regain the championship he lost at No Mercy on one of the biggest stages in SmackDown history? Or, will The Showoff show up and prove why he is the definition of a fighting champion?
Be sure to tune in next Tuesday on USA Network to see how it all unfolds on SmackDown’s 900th episode!
