Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, Undertaker was asked when he knew he could make a surprise appearance in the match.

"It happened pretty spontaneously. We got to Philadelphia on Wednesday. I got a call on Tuesday from Triple H. 'Hey, a lot of things are going on and a lot of thoughts are being put into this. Would you want to be part of it?' 'If it works and if I can be a help, I don't know how, but if I can help, fine, whatever you guys need. Just let me know.' 'We don't have anything yet, we're just putting ideas together.' I don't hear anything else until Thursday. I get a text from Michael Hayes. 'We're coming up with some ideas.' 'Cool, let me know.' That was it. I'm at the One Deadman Show. I get a text from Paul Heyman. 'Interesting.' I told Paul originally, 'This isn't about me. If the guys want me involved in it, whatever I can do, let me know. If they don't, it ain't going to hurt my feelings. I'm good. Don't feel like there is any pressure.' It had gone back and forth. I get a text during Sunday, and that's when you see me get up. At that point, I knew there was a good chance," he said.

Undertaker noted that he got the text on Sunday that things were moving forward about a quarter of the way through the show.
