Fans have been clamoring for The Undertaker’s return to the wrestling world, however, this seems more and more unlikely. WWE News reveal the Dead Man was recently seen in his crutches, dropping rumors of his return this year.
A recent photo of The Undertaker has been swirling online lately, showing the former WWE champion in crutches. This has raised speculations on whether he can still return to the ring or if his Wrestlemania 32 match was his last already.
According to Pro Wrestling & MMA, the images is a “recent photo” of the wrestler in what looks to be a Starbucks shop. So does this mean an end of an era for the WWE?
While nothing has been confirmed yet, several possible plots have been thrown in the mix about the legendary wrestler’s return. Hall of Famer Sting has recently revealed that he plans to face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33.
“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 an interview.
It was also hinted that Brock Lesnar could be the American Badass’ opponent when he returns to WWE. While this may seem unlikely, given Lesnar’s scheduled match against returning Goldberg, fans are still hoping this would happen before The Undertaker retires.
However, Forbes noted that there’s no confirmation of the photo’s date nor has WWE revealed any information about the wrestler. Moreover, if ever The Undertaker retires soon, given his legendary career, fans can expect the WWE to make a big deal out of it.
“Given the potential dream matches still waiting for him at WrestleMania 33 and beyond, it would be surprising if he didn’t wrestle at least one more match before calling it quits,” the site noted.
For fans, the WWE News of The Undertaker return to the ring is still very possible. He may just return when nobody expects it — Dead Man style.
