Fans want to see the “Dead Man” climb into the ring one more time but is an Undertaker return unlikely?
After his loss at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans, many fans thought an Undertaker return was more than likely. Not just at the next Wrestlemania, but maybe even the next night on Raw, to avenge the loss against Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker didn’t show up on Raw or Smackdown the next night. He hasn’t shown up on WWE TV at all since WrestleMania 30.
Sadly, an Undertaker return might not happen at all. This news comes straight from the mouth of the man himself.
“According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Undertaker has been training at the gym in recent weeks, leading one to believe that he could be preparing himself for a return to the ring at WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, CA. When asked about the possibility of having one more match, Undertaker said “it’s not looking good.'”
Undertaker return — never say ‘never’
Now let’s put this all into perspective — every year around WrestleMania time, an Undertaker return is mentioned and teased in the dirt sheets and even by the WWE. The possibility of an Undertaker return “never looks good” until three weeks before ‘Mania and MIRACLES! Undertaker appears on Raw or Smackdown to face his next opponent.
Granted, the phenom is 49 years old, and his body is broken down from the years of service to the WWE, but a Undertaker return certainly isn’t out of the question. Sure the Undertaker’s best WrestleMania matches are behind him but it’s one night, one match, and with the right opponent to carry the match the Undertaker could have one last match left in the tank.
Maybe he could even talk Shawn Michaels into one last go? Probably not, but, an Undertaker return would most likely have to involve Brock Lesnar. Especially with the weekly reminders from Paul Heyman that his client, Brock Lesnar, defeated the Undertaker at WrestleMania.
WrestleMania 31 still more than nine months away. All fans can do is wait and see.
