We're only three days away now from sign-pointing season in the WWE, where all roads lead to WrestleMania - and they start at the Royal Rumble in Phoenix.
But there's been no news or sightings surrounding the man synonymous to performing on the Grandest Stage of Them All; and that is The Undertaker.
Taker was last seen in a WWE ring at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia last November, where he and Kane lost in a tag team match to D-Generation X.
His previous 2018 matches against John Cena, Rusev and Triple H showed that there was life in the old dog, with an apparent hip replacement surgery helping his mobility inside the squared circle.
Having not been seen since the Saudi event though, there's been no hints that he will be at the Royal Rumble this Sunday, nor any chatter about apparent WrestleMania matches this year.
An email sent by WWE to fans promoting the release of episodes of Superstars on the WWE Network suggested that Undertaker was already a Hall of Famer, and thus people believed that he would be the headliner for the 2019 Hall of Fame class.
Whether that happens remains to be seen, but once you go in the Hall of Fame in WWE you normally don't compete again in the ring, which has finally brought up talk of Taker's involvement this year in New York.
In Dave Meltzer's latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, per The Mirror, he's stated that as of right now, there's currently no plans for Taker to have a match at the upcoming WrestleMania.
Yep, you heard that right - a WrestleMania without The Undertaker.
It would be the first since 2000 that Taker would not be a part of, that was back when he was a full-time superstar recovering from injury as he switched from his Ministry of Darkness gimmick to an American biker.
One particular Raw superstar - Finn Balor - teased the idea of facing the Deadman at Mania via his Instagram last week, but that's seemingly not going to happen.
Plans can always change - especially in WWE - but maybe Taker feels like he doesn't really have anything more to give in the ring in 2019.News Now - Sport News
