It's been an interesting couple of months for The Undertaker.
Not too long ago he was snapped using crutches to get around, sparking online fears that his time with WWE was coming to an abrupt end.
The photos of The Deadman didn't look good, but it was then confirmed that he had just undergone hip surgery, which meant he needed the crutches to help him move about.

Then just last week, 'Taker appeared on SmackDown LIVE and sent a word of warning to the blue brand ahead of their battle with Monday Night Raw at Survivor Series.
The message clearly worked as SmackDown LIVE defeated Raw in the five-on-five main event, with Bray Wyatt pinning Roman Reigns to conclude the bout.
However, that message wasn't the only thing interesting about The Phenom's appearance.
He also stated that WrestleMania will no longer define him. Over the past few years, Undertaker has only really been known to appear for 'Mania, but that looks like it's about to change.
His comments on Cutting Edge hinted at more wrestling and more appearances rather than just the one-off ones at The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Since then, 'Taker's role with WWE has been discussed and reports have emerged claiming he could face AJ Styles at the Royal Rumble.
According to NoDQ, the current plans could see The Phenom take on The Phenomenal One for the WWE Championship, and should Undertaker be victorious, he would then defend the title against John Cena at WrestleMania 33.
It's by no means a done deal that 'Taker will face AJ Styles, but if he does and if he does beat the champion, it would then set up nicely for Undertaker vs Cena at 'Mania.
That would then give The Face That Runs The Place a chance to tie Ric Flair's championship record.
As reported earlier this week, timing may be an issue for WWE, especially with Undertaker's recent surgery.
