There is no denying that WWE wrestlers hope to be in the best shape possible ahead of the biggest night on the professional wrestling calendar; WrestleMania.
This year's event which takes place on 29th March in the Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, California will prove to be no exception for the stars of WWE. However, it has today been reported that one of the company's legends is not in the best condition ahead of WrestleMania XXXI.
None other than WWE idol, The Undertaker, is rumored to be in bad shape despite supposedly being on course to face Bray Wyatt on The Grandest Stage of Them All next month.
According to a source, as reported by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Undertaker's vast amount of experience in the ring, is starting to take its toll:
“For what it’s worth, someone saw Undertaker recently and said that he looked 60 and moved like his knees were gone and it was almost shocking."
This news is not entirely surprising, given the years of hard work The Dead Man has put into his extremely physical occupation, as well as the fact he will be celebrating his 50th Birthday just five days before WrestleMania 31 in March.
WWE will doubtlessly still be hoping for a huge return from one its most legendary names, as Wyatt has been continuously referencing him in several promos.
It may well be the case that The Undertaker's limited range of movement means he has been well-matched with Wyatt, as he may well be able to carry the 49-year-old well in what could be an incredible match on the biggest night of the year for WWE.

There is no argument that The Undertaker's body has had to go through a lot over several years, as he has undergone several surgeries having suffered several injuries.
Bray Wyatt however, may well be the ideal WWE superstar to somewhat cover-up The Undertaker's physical limitations, but we are sure nonetheless, to be in for an exciting match-up at the end of next month.
In addition, another very intriguing rumour which has been circulating is that Vince McMahon is looking to book a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania XXXI for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
This would see Brock Lesnar look to retain his title against Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan. Although this is currently just speculation, we are sure to be in for, as ever, a huge night when the time comes for the legendary event.
