The reason why The Undertaker was booed by sections of the audience at SmackDown 1000

For the first time in nearly two long years, The Undertaker returned 'home' to SmackDown Live.

The Deadman last appeared on the blue brand to address the 2016 Survivor Series team that were set to take on Raw, and warned them that they would pay the price if they were to lose.

But they were victorious, so there was no need for Taker to extract revenge on anyone on a Tuesday night.

We've seen The Undertaker on television a lot more in recent months than usual though, with his match at Super Show-Down against Triple H the reason for his airtime.

His interactions have taken place on Monday Night Raw though, and he could even make another appearance before his November 2 bout against D-Generation X, when he teams up once again with his Brothers of Destruction partner Kane.

Taker only appeared at the back-end of the show for a few minutes, his entrance characteristically lasted longer than his actual promo, which lasted a whole 22 seconds.

And with Becky Lynch setting a precedent earlier in the evening by being CHEERED for mocking popular Hall of Famer Edge over his neck issues, The Undertaker was never, ever going to get a negative reaction from this, or any crowd.

But we were highly mistaken, as he mentioned the two words that WWE fans don't seem to like at this current moment - Crown Jewel.

With WWE not mentioning where the event is supposed to be located on both Raw and SmackDown this week, it's creating speculation that the company are set to either move the show to another country, or they're just quietly keeping Saudi Arabia's name away in the hope that the audience will forget it is ever happening there.

And the mere mention of its name drew ire from the audience, with audible displeasure ringing around the area whilst Taker paused.

When Undertaker gets booed, you know it's a bad sign, and WWE will need to seriously consider the future of the show as it continues to receive considerable backlash over their deal with the Saudis.
