With rumours running wild that The Undertaker is going to return at this year’s WrestleMania, could his real life wife and former WWE diva, Michelle McCool be dropping hints?
In recent weeks WWE fans have witnessed Bray Wyatt deliver cryptic promos about a superstar that everyone guessed was The Undertaker, then at WWE Fast Lane, Wyatt finally said the Deadman’s name.
In a show-stealing promo, truly one of the best moments of the pay-per-view, Wyatt who delivered his intense, dark promo from the confines of a coffin said; “at WrestleMania, I will claim the soul of The Undertaker”.
It is this time of year that Deadman usually resurfaces in time for a showdown at WrestleMania, but after his first loss at the event last year at the hands of Brock Lesnar, it wasn’t clear whether or not he would return. In fairness, it still isn’t confirmed that he is actually going to show up.
However, former diva’s champion McCool has been updating her Instagram profile a lot lately, and some of the posts appear to show The Undertaker working out. It could mean he is training to get in shape for his WrestleMania return but that is unclear at the moment.

Her latest post shows her holding a copy of wrestling legend Shawn Michaels’ new book, ‘Wrestling for my Life’. The Undertaker had a storied rivalry with the Heartbreak Kid and had two epic matches at WrestleMania 25 and 26, which led to the Deadman retiring Michaels in their last match.
Could the Deadman be reading HBK’s book to get some tips ahead of comeback or is it to just pass the time as he waits to make his comeback?
Will he actually show up?
The Undertaker is yet to respond Bray Wyatt’s challenge and it suggested that he won’t actually accept his challenge at all. In past years when there has been a situation like this, Taker dramatically reappears on Raw after not being seen for months to accept a challenge.
However this year the WWE might be going with the idea that we do not see or hear from the Undertaker until the big event itself. That way more mystery will surround the match. Bray Wyatt would come to the ring first and wait for The Undertaker to appear but the hope is that WWE fans won’t know whether or not he actually going to show up, then when his infamous bell rings and the lights go out, the crowd will pop massively.
It is an interesting route to take for the WWE after all the fans aren’t stupid and they would have seen the Instagram posts, and read the dirtsheets like the rest of us, and will know he is training for a comeback so it won’t be as much of a surprise as the WWE would hope for. Regardless of that, the WrestleMania crowd will go wild no matter what when The Undertaker appears because that is just the effect he has.
