This past Monday night on Raw, the main event segment was that The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar would have some sort of ill-defined confrontation. Lesnar and Paul Heyman came out, a bunch of druids wheeled out a casket as Gregorian chants played and nothing really happened for several minutes.
Lesnar finally opened the casket, but it was empty. At this point, one of two things could happen:
- Undertaker tears through the ring from underneath to attack Lesnar and/or Heyman from behind.
- Undertaker turns out to be in the casket the next time they check.
It was the second option. Undertaker popped up, overwhelmed Lesnar with a large volume of strikes and dumped him over the top rope, with Lesnar taking a nasty bump on the casket. All the while, the crowd chanted "Happy Birthday" at The Undertaker, killing the mood.
This was definitely the weakest of the angles so far. This feud needs as little Undertaker mystical wackiness as possible. I was OK with what happened the week before on Main Event since he could have found ways to get in the ring when the lights were out besides teleportation, but this was too much. Plus, on top of that, barely anything happened.
The original draw behind this match was that people thought there was something "real" based on what happened at the UFC event a few years ago. When you involve druids and multiple forms of teleportation and all that, it hurts the appeal.
