The Undertaker has been scheduled to appear during a SmackDown taping next month in Manchester.
The WWE announced on their website today that The Deadman would be appearing at the tapings on November 10 during the 11-day tour of the United Kingdom, from 5 to 14 November.
The statement by the WWE also said The Phenom could bring something special to Manchester, as November marks the 25th anniversary of his WWE debut.

The statement said: "The Undertaker will be on hand for SmackDown in Manchester, U.K., on Tuesday, 10 Nov. at 7 p.m.
"WWE will embark on an 11-day tour of the United Kingdom, from 5 to 14 Nov., and sports-entertainment's top Superstars will visit Manchester Arena for episodes of Raw and SmackDown during the visit.
"With 9 Nov.'s Raw show already sold out, though, the WWE Universe is strongly encouraged to act fast if they want to see The Deadman's first appearance in the U.K. in two years, as well as unbelievable SmackDown action in Manchester on 10 Nov.
"With November marking his 25th anniversary in WWE, what destruction will The Phenom bring when he comes to Manchester?"
It sounds like the WWE wants this to be a big occasion that could have implications for the rumored Survivor Series match between The Undertaker and Bray Wyatt. It could either be The Deadman accepting Wyatt's challenge to a match, or The Phenom announcing who his team will be for the traditional elimination tag team match.
Either way, this is a good move by the WWE, as announcing a big name to appear on the show will surely boost TV ratings which have been slumping recently.
