Bengaluru, Oct 14: It looks like we will see a number of returns prior to the Royal Rumble event in January 2017. As per previous reports Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Brock Lesnar all are going to show up one by one to hype up the mega event after taking hiatus from the ring. In addition, we are now getting The Undertaker’s name into the mix.
This is after several months that we are getting some positive news regarding the Deadman’s return. Undertaker was supposed to have his last match at this year’s Wrestlemania in his home state of Dallas, Texas. His original opponent as planned by the creative was none other than the franchise of the company, John Cena.
But, in January 2016 Cena had torn his shoulder rotator calf and undergone a shoulder surgery. So, the much-anticipated match was canceled. As a plan B, WWE replaced Cena with Shane McMahon and Taker won the bout that took place inside Hell in a Cell structure.
He was not seen in WWE since then which fuelled up his retirement topic, once again. A recent report from 434.com suggests that the Undertaker would make his return at the Royal Rumble PPV. The first mega PPV in the year 2017 is scheduled to take place from the Alamodome, Texas in which both Raw and Smackdown will participate.
So, it’s still not clear on which brand Taker will finally show up but it is certain that he will appear to give hint about his next and perhaps the final Wrestlemania opponent. John Cena is the automatic choice since he is the only one he has not faced at Wrestlemania. Plus, this year would mark his 25th appearance at the grandest stage of them all which means this might be the last time we will be seeing the Phenome on his home ground of Wrestlemania.
The report also clarifies that Undertaker will show up to start feuding with the Cenation leader from Royal Rumble PPV. This is supposed to be the main event of Wrestlemania 33. If that happens then it will be the second time when Undertaker will main event Wrestlemania from the same venue. Previously, Undertaker vs. Edge was the main event of Wrestlemania 24 from the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
