Commemorate the 30-year anniversary of The Undertaker’s WWE debut with 30 Days of The Deadman, a month-long celebration that begins Sunday, October 25 and wraps on Survivor Series Sunday, on the award-winning WWE Network and all WWE digital and social platforms.
WWE was forever changed on November 22, 1990, when the funeral dirge signalling The Undertaker’s arrival rang out for the very first time at Survivor Series. Since then, The Phenom has etched one unforgettable moment after another, carving a legacy in sports-entertainment that has no rival.
WWE Network’s 30 Days of The Deadman celebration will feature a full month of original programming dedicated to The Undertaker. A new documentary will be released every Sunday, capped off by The Undertaker’s much-anticipated return to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on Sunday, Nov. 22.
The programming schedule, which was first revealed by Variety, is available below. In addition to these and other WWE Network offerings, look for unique Undertaker content throughout the month across all of WWE’s digital and social platforms.
