The Undertaker hasn't been seen in the WWE since WrestleMania, after he beat Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell.
That match made sure that Vince McMahon retained control of Monday Night Raw as Shane looked to open up his big black suitcase of secrets to pry control away from his old man. After the match, Shane was given the running of Raw anyway, making the match between him and Taker utterly pointless.
Apparently, the WWE want to bring The Undertaker back ahead of SummerSlam, but it isn't looking likely.

Dispute with Vince
According to Richard Gray of Wrestling News World, The Undertaker has not even been taking Vince's phone calls as the WWE's second biggest pay-per-view of the year draws ever nearer.
"From what I’ve been told, Undertaker and Vince had a dispute about the finish to his match at WrestleMania 32 and Undertaker ended up cancelling his scheduled dates to work for WWE after the pay-per-view of the year."
One Match A Year
While Taker is contracted to the WWE, he has an amazing deal that says he only has to wrestle one match a year. Last year, when he performed more than once, was entirely up to him. After WrestleMania, the WWE can't force him to return for SummerSlam.
"Undertaker is under WWE contract but his contract only stipulates that he works once a year, a commitment that has already been fulfilled."
Gray went on to add that the WWE want Taker to face John Cena at "the biggest party of the summer." That match was apparently in the works for 'Mania before Cena got injured.
Other reports have stated that Undertaker is claiming WrestleMania 32 as his retirement match. Hopefully, for fans everywhere, that isn't the case.
