The Undertaker was an iconic figure in the history of SmackDown, so it was surprising to see that The Deadman wasn’t one of the guests or special returns on the day of their big network shift to Fox. It’s been reported through various sources that The Usos, Tamina Snuka, and Drew McIntyre were backstage but not used on the show.
The Undertaker was also said to have been backstage, but left the show at some point and did not make an appearance. Reason why Undertaker wasn’t on SmackDown was because he wasn’t needed according to The Deadman himself.
