Everyone was shocked when The Undertaker was rumored to return in the middle of the summer and then ended up coming back for a match with Brock Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam. He ended up winning that match and has now disappeared from the scene yet again. A lot of people believe that he’s now gone again until WrestleMania 32, but that doesn’t appear to be the case, and he should be back soon.
According to Wrestling Inc., The Undertaker is being promoted for a WWE tour of Mexico in the middle of October. That tour won’t be televised, but it looks like “The Deadman” will actually be around even more than that.
According to Cageside Seats, The Undertaker is going to continue on as a part-time wrestler for WWE until past WrestleMania 32. As long as he is healthy enough to perform, especially considering how he felt after SummerSlam, Undertaker is ready to keep going.
Rumor has it that he actually believes he could go a few more years at his current pace, and that may put an end to rumors that WrestleMania 32 will feature his retirement match.
The ending of the match between Lesnar and Taker at SummerSlam ended in controversy, and that pretty much means that feud isn’t over. For those who don’t remember, The Undertaker did tap out, but the ref didn’t see it, and it led to shenanigans.
This is going to likely lead to a third match between the two, and rumor has had it that it will happen at WrestleMania 32. That has yet to be confirmed, though, but it appears a tie-breaker between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker is in the future.
In early August, WWE began teasing an appearance by The Undertaker at this year’s Survivor Series in November. It will be the 25th anniversary of his debut in WWE, so it’s very likely the company makes a big deal of it.
Let’s not forget that this year’s Survivor Series will mark the one-year anniversary of Sting’s debut in WWE as well. Some believe that this could lead to an eventual feud between the two and possibly a match at WrestleMania 32, but again, that is just a rumor too.
The Undertaker looks to be doing better than he has in quite some time, and he’s not ready to give up life in the ring yet. WWE has to be thrilled if one of their long-time stars actually has a few more years left and continues in the ring, and fans are now hoping The Deadman is back sooner rather than later.
