The Undertaker returning soon and appearing on Smackdown?

Summer Slam is this Sunday and it looks to be a completely different show from last year's event where it was headlined by the surprise return of the Undertaker.

The Deadman seems unlikely to be at this year's event and since he also wasn't drafted by either RAW or Smackdown, most fans have assumed that we won't see him again until WrestleMania 33.

Early return

That may prove to not be the case however as a recent fan upload to Instagram showed Taker and Shane McMahon meeting up in a bar.

Shane - the current commissioner of Smackdown could have discussing the Deadman's return at their meeting.

Even more interestingly than the fact that the two were meeting - some thing that could have been a mere catch up between old friends, was Undertaker's appearance.

Taker appeared with black hair which is normally a sign of an impending return from the Deadman - meaning he could be preparing to return to the ring.

Could the Undertaker be about to not only return to the ring, but also make the move to Smackdown as oppose to the flagship show?

Ever since the draft, WWE has put a clear emphasis on increasing the popularity of Smackdown and by putting superstars like John Cena, AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt and WWE Champion Dean Ambrose on that brand, they got off to a good start.

However the Cena vs Styles feud has lost some of it's intensity, Ambrose and his #1 contender Dolph Ziggler haven't exactly lit up the screen.

But an emergence from the Deadman could breath new interest into the show and if the Instagram post above and the one from Taker's wife Michelle McCool is anything to go by, it is an almost certainty.
