As seen on SmackDown LIVE last week, The Undertaker made his long-awaited return to WWE.

The Deadman hadn't been seen since WrestleMania 32, where he overcame Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match, but his appearance on the blue brand was worth the wait.

After interrupting an episode of 'Cutting Edge', The Phenom sent an unsettling message to Team SmackDown LIVE ahead of Survivor Series.

He warned every member of the men's team that they would have him to fear should they let the brand down at the pay-per-view.

Luckily for Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, and McMahon, Team SmackDown LIVE overcame Monday Night Raw, with Orton and Wyatt the survivors.

However, with Styles and Ambrose turning on each other during the match, they might have a reason to fear The Undertaker, especially the WWE Champion.

During the episode of Cutting Edge, Undertaker sent a fierce warning to Team SmackDown LIVE, but also mentioned his future in WWE.

The Phenom admitted that WrestleMania will no longer define him as a superstar, insinuating that he will no longer just wrestle at The Grandest Stage of Them All.

There are some reports suggesting Undertaker could wrestle at the Royal Rumble in January, and according to Wrestling Observer, AJ Styles could be his opponent.

However, there is one stumbling block for the match.

Timing could be a real big issue for WWE, with 'Taker only just recovering from a recent hip operation, which forced him to walk around with crutches for a few days.

WWE officials have a legitimate reason to fear 'Taker not being fully fit for January's pay-per-view, but if he is, he could be sharing the ring with the WWE Champion.
