The November 15 episode of SmackDown Live is one fans simply cannot miss, with The Undertaker set to make his return for the first time since his Hell in a Cell win over Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.
The occasion marks the 900th episode of SmackDown, and The Deadman has been synonymous with the blue brand ever since the first brand split many years ago.
THE DEADMAN VS THE VIPER?
It’s expected that his return will be used to set up a potential match with Randy Orton, who looks to have joined The Wyatt Family after hitting an RKO on Kane for two weeks straight, and that could be used in the storyline.

It’s not clear as to when that match will take place; some reports say the return is taking place before Survivor Series so ‘Taker battles The Viper at the historic event, but it seems too early to build towards a match for WrestleMania 33.
However, with The Undertaker widely expected to compete in Orlando next year, RingSideNews are reporting that the WWE will be promoting it as The Undertaker’s final match with the company.
WRESTLEMANIA 33 RETIREMENT
He’s recently had his surgery, and as every month passes by, it continues to look less and less likely that he’ll be able to keep going, so it would be a wise move for the WWE to book WrestleMania 33 as his final match.
If Orton vs. The Deadman takes place at Survivor Series; then he’s also expected to stick around at the Royal Rumble, as the WWE want to go all out for this event, so it makes sense having him part of the historic occasion.
Then the build begins to his reported final match, with John Cena as the current frontrunner to work the event, but plans will be made clearer closer to both events.
Along with Cena; Goldberg, Sting and even Kevin Owens have been discussed as potential opponents.
But considering it’s his final match, Cena feels like the best option from the speculated list.
