Rumors of The Undertaker’s return to WWE has been clouding the wrestling world for months now. Recent WWE News, however, suggest that his return will be very soon and it will be against wrestling vets, Jeff Hardy or Sting.
The Undertaker has been Missing in Action from the WWE since early this year. Many have been wondering if the Dead Man has already retired or is he just taking time to rest. He hasn’t confirmed any of the speculation, although recent reports reveal the wrestler will be returning to the WWE very soon. Possibly at WWE Wrestlemania 33.
Who will be up against? Sting or Jeff Hardy.
The Undertaker vs Sting
Fans have been wanting to see both Sting and The Undertaker return to the ring. Both WWE superstars have not made an appearance on the network for a while now — Sting was last seen last year at WWE Night of the Champions 2015, while The Undertaker was last seen around April this year. With suggesting that The Undertaker will be having his comeback, many fans hope that his first match would be against the Blade Runner. Fans may see this happen soon!
In a recent interview with Sting, the wrestler revealed that he still plans to face the Dead Man.
“Yeah, that’s the unfinished business. I’ve always wanted to have that match. I know wrestling fans have always wanted to see it too,” Sting told JBL during the interview.
As for his injury, the wrestler said he feels “normal” and may not need to have a surgery anymore.
“I am supposed to have surgery, but I’m having so many mixed messages out there. And the one thing I keep hearing is ‘if you’re not having side effects and you’re okay, then don’t do it,'” he shared, notes Wrestling Inc.

The Undertaker Returns vs Jeff Hardy?
Another name thrown into the mix of WWE returnees is Hardy brother, Jeff.
The wrestler has been wrecking havoc on TNA, carrying the name “Brother Nero.” However, it was in the WWE that Jeff and Matt became household names in wrestling. Definitely, them returning and a possible Undertaker vs Jeff Hardy match would bring in big numbers for WWE.
Jeff noted though, that his fate will rely on how things will turn out in the next few months.
“All the WWE stuff really depends on what happens between now and February with TNA,” Jeff explained to Sports Illustrated.
“When you commit to a WWE contract, you’re committing to some serious time away from home. If it were under my terms, there might be a chance, but I’m really not sure. Of course it would be nice, but what we’re doing right now is so much fun. I don’t want to go back to WWE and burn out within four or five months, and having another run as TNA world champion would feel just as good.”
Hi statement seems to go against WWE News that he and the Undertaker will face off in the squared circle.
Well, one thing’s for sure, whoever The Undertaker faces will be a must-watch fight.
