Undertaker says there could be no one better to be comissioner of Smackdown as the man who has no fear, talking about Shane. He says that Wrestlemania will no longer define who he is, he's back, taking souls and digging holes and that Survivor Series was where The Undertaker was born and Smackdown! has always been his home. Undertaker says there's no reason to fear failure at Survivor Series Sunday, but if they fail Sunday, they have reason to fear him. Undertaker says that Team RAW had better rest in peace as we go off the air.
