At WWE's latest Pay Per View Battleground we saw the return of a legend, The Undertaker, and I don't think we have to look too far to figure out why.
The Return of The Phenom
We hadn't seen The Undertaker since his match against 'the new face of fear' Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania earlier this year.
He made his return during the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match, just as Brock Lesnar was about to defeat Seth Rollins and reclaim the title.

Just as Lesnar went for the cover, the lights went out and the gong sounded. This was no Bray Wyatt farce, this was the real deal and I practically wet my pants with excitement.
The effect of The Undertaker
We've become so used to The Undertaker only appearing once a year, at WrestleMania, that I had forgotten how bone chilling it was when he appeared out of nowhere.
I am not one to deny that when the music of certain superstars hits, it sends a shiver down my spine. However there are only a very very small number that have this impact, one of which being The Rock.
However when I heard the sound of the gong, my entire body went cold and all of my hair stood on end. He was back.
Is this a wise move?
I have seen a lot of people questioning whether or not this is a good move by WWE, and it is something that I have given some thought to.
I think getting Lesnar away from the title picture is a brilliant move, this may not sit well with some people but I think it's time to give someone else a run at the title, otherwise Lesnar is going to have it for the next two years.
Do I think having a rivalry between Taker and Lesnar is a good idea? I'm not sure, this could go anywhere however WWE creative will almost certainly have to turn one of these stars heel. I don't think this can be The Undertaker.
Lesnar is hitting it off with the fans brilliantly right now, however as soon as The Deadman returned we were all behind him, no matter who he was beating down on.
It appeared that the idea was to turn Taker heel, with the low blow and hitting the finisher twice, however that didn't work, the fans loved it.
Ultimatley I'm not sure if this has the potential to be a great storyline, but I know that the kid in me says that I don't really care about the storyline, I'm just thrilled that The Undertaker is back and I can't wait to see him again.
