Will he? Won't he? That was the deal surrounding The Undertaker and whether or not he would be competing for the WWE during their European tour over the next couple of weeks.
The WWE Universe went a tad crazy when The Deadman was pulled from all events except for the London and Newcastle shows on April 19 and 20 respectively. It was then reported that he was then pulled from those dates as well, sparking speculation that his Hell in a Cell match against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32 might have been his last ever match.
After WrestleMania, The Undertaker reportedly had told his close friends, family, and company officials that he had wrestled in his last match, adding fuel to the fire of his possible retirement.

However, according to F4Wonline.com, via Wrestling Inc, WWE fans can now breathe a sigh of relief as the company has changed their minds on their decision regarding The Phenom's tour dates.
According to the report, The Undertaker will now be competing on the SmackDown tapings in London on April 19, and during a house show on April 20, possibly teaming up with his Brothers of Destruction tag team partner Kane, against Wyatt Family members Braun Strowman and Erick Rowan, although this has not been confirmed.
Despite these appearances, fans at home might not be able to see The Deadman compete, as the report has also speculated that his SmackDown appearance could be exclusive to the live crowd in attendance only, and it will not be taped to be broadcasted.
It comes as no surprise that possible retirement talks for The Undertaker are being discussed. Having turned 51 within the past month, his body isn't as resilient as it used to be. Indications of this started to occur when he was defeated by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, a match which he picked up a scary concussion.
But his match against Shane-O-Mac at WrestleMania 32 showed he can still put on a show when required to do so. The Phenom won the match after Shane jumped off the top of the cell, trying to hit The Undertaker on a table below, only for him to move at the last second. This win meant he would be allowed to compete at WrestleMania again in the future.
However, despite the loss, Shane McMahon has been given two chances to run Raw over the past two weeks, a reward he was only supposed to be given if he had won the Hell in a Cell match at The Showcase of The Immortals.
If The Undertaker decides to stick around for longer, he could confront Shane-O-Mac and Vince McMahon on the issue, asking why he is still being rewarded after losing the match. This could spark another feud between the two if the WWE decides to go ahead with it, but it is unlikely to happen.
