Roman Reigns and The Undertaker will team up on Sunday night at Extreme Rules and all signs point to this being a one-time thing as a team but that hasn’t stopped WWE from coming up with a name for them for merchandise purposes.
Just in time for their big match against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, WWE has created shirts to represent the team. As you can see below, they are being dubbed “The Graveyard Dogs.”
So The Undertaker and Roman Reigns are officially now known as the “Graveyard Dogs” even though they’re only going to be teaming together for one night and wow, oh wow this T-shirt is amazing and I want it now. Thanks, bye. #ExtremeRules #WWE pic.twitter.com/QZ9MFG2cc7

It’s actually a clever shirt and clever marketing to sell some shirts in Philadelphia and through WWE.com.
The Undertaker has always talked about the ring being his yard and Roman Reigns has done the same in recent years.
Taker returned to action at Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and then he shocked the fans when he apperaed on Monday Night Raw when Reigns was being beaten by McMahon and McIntyre. From what I’m told, Taker’s new contract includes more appearances and matches this year so we’ll see him in the ring at least once more after Extreme Rules. In fact, he is advertised for a big match at SummerSlam. Click here to see who WWE says he is scheduled to wrestle on the show.
Meanwhile, Shane McMahon is feuding with Kevin Owens on SmackDown Live while also feuding with Reigns. I’m told that the Reigns/McMahon feud is about to wrap up because tey have other plans for Reigns as WWE begins the hype for SummerSlam in a couple of days.
