Aiden English responds to injury reports after being tombstoned by The Undertaker

One of the highlights (aside from Titus O’Neil’s entrance botch) was The Undertaker’s return to action, his first match since WrestleMania and a very rare non-WrestleMania appearance for him.

Taker looked good and the match went longer than his Mania match John Cena. Clearly, if he is up for it, he has at least a few more matches left in the tank and there is a good chance that we’ll see him at Mania 35 in NY/NJ.

The finish of the match was Taker stuffing both Rusev and Aiden English into a casket. There were some fans worried about the Tombstone spot that English took during the final seconds of the match but English seems to be ok.

Someone on Twitter noted that PWInsider reported that English was fine after the match. English responded, “Thank goodness for them!! I’m so glad they reported on my condition after talking to no one who knows me or was there!”

It’s not 100% clear if he is shooting down PWInsider’s report with that tweet or if he is taking a shot at people claiming that he was injured during the match. Either way, it doesn’t look like he was seriously hurt.

In another tweet, English talked about how honored he was to take the Tombstone piledriver from Taker. Only a handful of wrestlers over the years can say that they were buried by The Undertaker and English’s name is now on that list.

So what is next for Rusev and Aiden English? Rusev’s merchandise sales are still doing great and the great sales figures are what led Vince McMahon to add him to the United States title match at WrestleMania. Aiden English has proven that he has more to offer now that he is no longer paired with Simon Gotch. Let’s hope that this is the start of a bigger push for both Rusev and English.
