THE BIG RUMOR: The Undertaker and Sting are going to be at SummerSlam, according to the Wrestling Observer (subscription required). This comes after rumors that the Deadman would appear at Sunday’s Battleground (sorry, not Battlefield, Daniel Bryan) pay-per-view. That’s according to a Reddit user called Falconarrow, who has a pretty good track record on these things. The Observer‘s Dave Meltzer says it’s unclear whether one or both would appear Sunday. This comes after Undertaker was spotted getting a pump in and looking jacked. Remember, it’s just a rumor, but it’s out there.
