The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
Undertaker Not Scheduled for Summerslam
The Deadman may not have a space on the Summerslam card. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t CagesideSeats), Undertaker is currently not scheduled to be on the show. Previously he had been advertised locally to be facing Drew McIntyre at the show.
It is strange that Undertaker’s match appears to be off. He appeared at Extreme Rules alongside Roman Reigns against McIntyre and Shane McMahon. Undertaker looked good in that matchup as well. Now it appears WWE has changed their mind on an Undertaker-McIntyre matchup.
Dominik Dijakovic Returns From Injury
At an NXT Live Event this weekend Dominik Dijakovic returned to action (h/t WrestlingInc). In April Dijakovic suffered a torn meniscus in a match. After surgery in May, he was expected to miss three months but has come back ahead of schedule. Last night he beat Cesar Bonini in Cocoa, Florida.
Dijakovic had previously been gunning for Velveteen Dream’s NXT Championship. No word yet on if he will continue that pursuit.
