In the WWE, The Undertaker is one superstar who always seems to be on the verge of a medical scare based upon health reports. Every fall it seems fans are speculating whether The Undertaker will make it to WrestleMania once again. Fortunately, The Undertaker’s wife, Michelle McCool, and some lucky WWE fans have some good news for the WWE Universe on that count.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, the WWE has already started advertising The Undertaker for WrestleMania 31 on the side of their trucks, so it seems highly likely he has been contracted to make some sort of appearance. In addition, the wrestler Sting is all but confirmed to have a WrestleMania 31 match, and Sting himself once said the story line of The Undertaker’s streak being broken is unnecessary for their match. It just needs to happen.
Unfortunately, while that does sound like one plus one equals two that does not necessarily mean it will happen as WWE fans desire. The Undertaker’s health is the largest factor in whether or not any match will take place and rumors about his health always seem to make their way around the world.
For example, earlier in the month rock band Limp Bizkit claimed The Undertaker was feeling ill.
“This next song goes out to our friend Mark Calaway, The Undertaker. He’s not doing real well right now and we want all our fans to keep him in their thoughts and prayers.”
When this news went out, everyone immediately thought of the injuries the The Undertaker sustained during his WrestleMania 30 match with Brock Lesnar. But as everyone knows, if you want the straight story, then you should go to the source, not a rumor of a rumor.
In this case, The Undertaker’s wife made the pronouncement that all was “good in the hood,” but this did not exactly tell the WWE Universe whether or not his physical condition was good enough for a match. After all, when McCool started showing us The Undertaker’s “non-dark side” on Instagram, everyone immediately seemed to think the photos indicated he wasn’t in that great of a shape.
Well, it’s possible The Undertaker got the hint that he better start showing the WWE Universe his healthy side, since the latest photos show the big man himself running in the 2.62 mile CC4C Micro Marathon 4 Inspiration.

Of course, running a relatively short family marathon is world’s apart from being able to take a 300 pound beefcake on their Last Ride. Still, it’s at least some good news since even light jogging tends to agitate neck and back injuries. If he can handle a short marathon that’s at least one step toward the ring. But assuming his health isn’t up to the challenge, we’ll still likely see the character of The Undertaker perform in some manner at WrestleMania 31.
Do you think The Undertaker should retire from the WWE?
