The Undertaker could be making his return to WWE soon.
For years now, The Undertaker has been a top guy for the sports entertainment company. He has feuded with the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling including Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and the list goes on and on. He has held nearly every title that the company has to offer.
Over the past few years, he has gone from being a full-time talent to a part-timer. After years of speculation of when Taker would retire from pro wrestling, it appears that he had his farewell at WrestleMania 33 in the main event against Roman Reigns earlier this year in Orlando, Florida. After the match, Taker put his gloves and hat in the middle of the ring before leaving.
Keep in mind that Taker nor WWE has come out publicly and stated that “The Deadman” is retired, but that is the belief. As seen in the history of the business, retirements often don’t last forever which is why the “one more match” question gets asked to so many wrestling legends after they retire. Obviously, the fans would like to see Taker go one more time before he gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
WWE decided to move John Cena over the Raw brand to put him in a program with Reigns and during their sparring sessions on the microphone, Reigns stated that he has done something that Cena was not able to do, which is retire the Undertaker. Cena shockingly responded, “I’m not the Undertaker. I’m not a battered veteran at the end of his career with a bad hip.”
PWinsider.com is reporting that the comment may seem tasteless, but it could be leading to something in the future. Taker was working out in the ring before SummerSlam, and despite the fact that he did not appear at the PPV event, his working out in the ring off-camera could perhaps be a sign of preparing for a return.
There has been some speculation that Undertaker may be back for one more WrestleMania match to compete against Cena. According to the report, if you noticed, there is a gong sound at the end of the No Mercy promo vignettes, so this may further indicate an Undertaker return in the near future. There is also speculation that WWE books a Taker against Cena at Survivor Series to bring a better draw to the pay-per-view.
