Backstage Update On Reason Why WWE Booked Undertaker On Mexico Tour
December 13, 2020 | News | No Comments
Back in July, it was revealed that The Undertaker would work the 2015 WWE tour of Mexico. The event just wrapped this past weekend where Undertaker teamed with Kane to face Luke Harper and Braun Strowman on three different shows. The matches took place in Mexico City, Monterrey, and Merida.
According to one WWE source, one of the main reasons WWE put The Undertaker and Ric Flair on those shows was due to the heat they received from Mexican promoters Ocesa. The promoters in Mexico were having major problems with WWE. They were upset that after the shows were first sold to them, they did not book any top talents or any real Mexican stars (as they don’t have that many).
A little background into the way it works, WWE books the tour and then sells the tour to local promoters and then receive a certain amount of the profit. After all that takes place the promoter must then sell tickets to make a profit, with them banking on the fact that what WWE sells will draw in fans. WWE receives any profits over a certain pre-determined percentage.
Until WWE was willing to book big name Superstars, the promoters of the Mexico tour pulled all support. which is why The Undertaker has since been added to the tour.
