In a shocking turn of events, The Undertaker came to the aid of Roman Reigns on Raw.

Reigns was wrestling a handicap match against Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon on Monday, one night after beating McIntyre at Stomping Grounds. As McMahon was in position to hit Reigns with his Coast-to-Coast top-rope attack, The Deadman appeared and cleaned house.

The live reaction to The Undertaker's return shows how much he can still generate excitement among WWE fans in the moment.

His return to Raw made little sense from a storyline perspective, though, and comes off as a way for the promotion to turn around sagging television ratings.

It would appear the stage is set for The Undertaker and Reigns to battle McMahon and McIntyre at Extreme Rules on July 14.
