The Undertaker looks nowhere near capable of Wrestlemania comeback

Rumours that The Undertaker will make another incredible return at Wrestlemania 31 next year have gathered some considerable pace over the last few weeks, with Bray Wyatt and Sting strongly mentioned as potential opponents for the Phenom.

WWE fans would love to see nothing short of Wrestlemania's biggest modern icon make one final appearance at the biggest pay-per-view of the year, but a leaked photo that's taken social media by storm early this week proves it's time for the legend to move on.

In a photo uncovered by PWMania.com over the weekend The Undertaker was snapped waiting to board a flight at an airport and looked in pretty bad shape, although that's hardly a surprise when you consider a punishing career int he ring that's lasted the best part of 25 years.

Time to take a backseat

WWE officials recently made the decision to use the Undertaker's distinctive image in promotional material for Wrestlemania 31, thankfully for them it wasn't the airport image of a man fast approaching 50 and ready for retirement from one of the toughest industries imaginable.

There's no reason that a man with 21 successive victories at Wrestlemania can't be involved in the March 29th showpiece at Levi's Stadium, but just not as an active performer.

Hall of Fame is calling

The 49-year-old may have a desire to make sure last year's defeat to Brock Lesnar isn't his final Wrestlemania moment, but a legacy that makes him a shoe-in for the WWE Hall of Fame will only be further damaged not salvaged by another match.

Quite frankly Taker doesn't look in the kind of shape required to take part a big match at Wrestlemania in the revealing snap above, even if Wyatt or another youngster superstar is willing to carry the workload.

WWE chiefs may be desperate to use a man still on a seven-figure retainer in the biggest spot possible at Wrestlemania 31, but one look at The Undertaker's current state should be enough to make sure urgent changes are made to those plans moving forward.
