The Undertaker, one of the most legendary wrestlers ever to enter a WWE ring, looks set to take up a new role in the organization in the coming months it has been reported today.
'Taker has been part of the WWE for over three decades now having signed up to the then World Wrestling Federation in 1990, and in the proceeding 24 years the veteran star has been through it all in order to take his place as one of the true greats.
And now it looks like he is set to use this wealth of experience in order to guide, advise and identify the next batch of talent that can help the WWE continue to grow.
A helping hand
As reported by Wrestling Inc., The Undertaker told people at Thursday night's WWE NXT taping that he will be taking on an advisory role within the developmental program in the coming months.
This is believed to involve the now 49-year-old wrestler visiting the NXT Center in Orlando in what is for now set to be a limited capacity, in order to help young talent and offer any advice he can to those looking to make a name for themselves in the industry.

Perfect role model
The Undertaker may have, over recent years, seen his WWE appearances restricted to annual match ups at WrestleMania as injuries and age begin to take their tole on one of the best wrestlers of all-time.
But in being a key part of Vince McMahon's roster as the WWE has evolved into the biggest sports entertainment businesses on the planet over recent years, there is no doubt that he is the perfect candidate to offer help to those trying to emulate his achievements.
Seeing his streak come to an end at WrestleMania 31 - a match up against Brock Lesnar that left The Undertaker with severe concussion - he may now though be ready to take an even bigger step back from the wrestling side of things.
