The wait is over, The Undertaker is back! Taker is all set for his return on WrestleMania 29. There was some concern about Taker’s return as he is still not completely cured from his fatal hip injury. So the biggest question around WWE Universe for last few weeks was, “Will he be back?” Well, seems the answer now is given by The Deadman.
The Undertaker’s return was almost certain after he made a shock appearance at Saturday night’s WWE house show in Waco, Texas, teaming up with Sheamus to take on Wade Barrett and Damien Sandow. This marked The Undertaker’s first official WWE appearance since he defeated Triple H last year in a thrilling bout at WrestleMania 28.
In Buffalo, New York, WWE fans were promised to see an old school RAW; and what would have satisfied them more than The Deadman’s gong! The show had just started when The Undertaker walked a few steps outside of the entranceway and raised his arms – the lights came up, and the Wrestlemania graphic appeared on the screen. There were four contenders to choose from – CM Punk, Randy Orton, The Big Show, and Sheamus. When the tension mounted among these four fearless performers, RAW Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero restored order with an executive decision – a Fatal 4-Way match to determine who among them would tempt fate and tangle with The Phenom. Punk won the match after pinning Randy Orton.
While Undertaker’s undefeated streak is a cornerstone of the WrestleMania pay-per-view, WWE Universe wondered if the legend was going to participate in a match at this year’s PPV, with reports emerging that management, even this close to the event, were still unsure if they could count on “The Deadman” to work the show.
Undertaker aka Mark Callaway is 47 now. At this stage in his life and with his physically wracked body, wrestling on the show against CM Punk would certainly be a questionable decision. Could it be up the quality of his previous MOTY bouts? Let’s wait and watch!
