Posted by Steve Carrier on 01/02/2017 at 10:02 AM

WWE officials have confirmed to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com that both The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels will be appearing on RAW on 1/9 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Both legends are being advertised locally to appear on the show. This expected to build something for the Royal Rumble three weeks later in San Antonio, Texas.

Undertaker was largely expected on the show in some form, perhaps in the Royal Rumble Match itself. As of a few days ago, his destination for WrestleMania was a match with John Cena. Vince McMahon was not 100 percent with that match, but leaning in that direction.

Meltzer expects Michaels to appear at the Royal Rumble in some form since the event is being held at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Michaels is the biggest wrestling star who is a native of San Antonio and is currently working for WWE as a coach at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

It is unclear what role Michaels will play in the show. Michaels retired in 2010 after losing to The Undertaker at WrestleMania and has insisted for years that he wouldn’t wrestle in another match. However, there are a number of different roles he could do if he’s not wrestling, such as being a referee or endorsing someone. AJ Styles had said that he would have liked to face Michaels, but with Cena earmarked for that match, that doesn’t appear likely.

As previously reported, WrestleMania 34 is expected to be taking place in New Orleans and that could also be tied in with Undertaker and Michaels appearing on RAW.
