— Ronnie Godfrey sent this one in: The Undertaker has been spotted arriving at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home of tonight’s RAW. He arrived in a Black Tahoe. The vehicle pulled in the gates and stopped where he was greeted by security. He got out of the vehicle and waved at all of us on the other side of the gate. There was another person with him, not sure who that was. We have 3rd row ring side seats, so I will def. be keeping you informed.
We can’t confirm this report but we figured we’d throw it out there. Ronnie has emailed us reports in the past and they’ve always been right on. As of last word, The Undertaker was expected to appear on RAW tonight.
