The Undertaker Showed Up for the Cavaliers Season Opener

LeBron shouted out the Undertaker during the Finals, so now he's back (back!) to return the favor.

There is a lot going on in Cleveland on Tuesday night. Obviously, Game 1 of the World Series between the Indians and the Cubs gets underway at Progressive Field, but the Cavaliers also open the NBA season at Quicken Loans Arena against the New York Knicks about 30 minutes before first pitch. It's a Cleveland sports day fit for a dude known for resurrections: The Undertaker.


Most likely in a nod to LeBron shirt-checking the Taker in practice during the Finals and then later during a press conference before Game 5 where the Cavs trailed the Warriors 3-1 in the series—what happened next will shock you!—the Undertaker stopped by The Q on Tuesday to offer some…well wishes?

Yes!!! It's the Undertaker! Wishing the @Cavs good luck as they leave the locker room.

Wtf that isn't really the Undertaker in Cleveland for Cavs/Knicks tonight right?….

I think I recognize that guy. Undertaker is in the house, right outside #Cavs locker room.

As we all now know, the Cavaliers have not lost a game after LeBron wore that shirt (and then he wore an Ultimate Warrior shirt to celebrate). Now the inspiration for the shirt is in the building to keep the streak going. All good things, even streaks, must come to an end though, ri—

Come on, they're playing the Knicks.
