The Undertaker was last seen at WrestleMania 31 after defeating Bray Wyatt in a rather physical match. No one really expects to see him again until WrestleMania 32 next year in Texas, but now he has been spotted. The Undertaker was actually seen working out recently and looking to be in the best shape he’s been in for a long time. Will the “Dead Man” be back in the ring soon?
WrestleZone brought the pic to attention, and it was a tweet sent out by Joe DeFranco, the owner of DeFranco’s Gym. The gym is located in Austin, Texas, and shows Undertaker looking ripped.

DeFranco has worked out with a number of WWE superstars in the past, including Triple H.
While it may be just a picture and just The Undertaker working out in a gym, it’s a huge change from what was seen last year. After having “The Streak” broken, The Undertaker was not seen for a full year on WWE television, but fans had spotted him out and about.
During that time, The UnderTaker did not look to be in the best shape, and he actually really started to look his age. He also looked to be feeling the effects of decades of wrestling, and it was almost as if he was 80 instead of 50.
He then showed up at WrestleMania 31 and put on a pretty good match with Bray Wyatt. Sure, it was not spectacular and didn’t compare to his last few Mania matches, but it wasn’t a bad one at all.
After the big event this year, everyone has been thinking that Undertaker won’t be seen or really heard from again until WrestleMania 32. Will he face Sting? Will it be his retirement match? No one really knows, but what if he comes back before that?
When Undertaker was seen in airports or charity functions or anywhere last year and in early 2015, he had gray hair and a gray goatee. He looked aged and beaten and done with the world of wrestling. This tweet from DeFranco shows that he’s staying in shape now, but why?
Maybe he is just keeping in shape and enjoying his normal time off from WWE. It’s quite possible and he’s just biding his time until the moment comes for WrestleMania 32 in Texas next year.
The Undertaker is looking ripped right now, and it could be just to feel good and stay in shape. Then again, it could also be for a comeback for SummerSlam or perhaps Survivor Series or a shot at the man who broke his undefeated streak – Brock Lesnar.
