Bengaluru, Oct 27: The Undertaker was seen in public for the first time after this year’s Wrestlemania. He made an appearance at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ championship celebration.
The celebration of the winners of the NBA 2016 was held at the Quicken Loans arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Phenome made a surprising appearance to add more glow to the event.
He was accompanied by his wife, Michelle McCool at the event. Michelle is a former WWE Divas champion and was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The event also saw Dana Warrior, wife of the late great The Ultimate Warrior by Taker’s side. The appearance was more surprising because the Undertaker was present in his in-ring gear and the persona he plays on-screen and not his real-life (Mark Calaway) avatar.

There was a lot of excitement going on amongst the fans after spotting the Phenome at the event. WWE.com published the following regarding Undertaker’s appearance:
The Undertaker and the family of Ultimate Warrior joined the Cleveland Cavaliers' Opening Night Championship Celebration at Quicken Loans Arena Tuesday night.
The Deadman was in the house as LeBron James and the NBA Champions tipped off their season on a high note. Before the game, Undertaker, as well as Dana and Mattigan Warrior, met Kevin Love, Chris Andersen, Richard Jefferson and many of their Cavs teammates.

The post also mentioned that it was Lebron James who wore an Undertaker t-shirt in the NBA finals to bring back the luck to his team at a time when Cleveland was lagging behind with a 1-3 score. They won the match overcoming the odds. So, Taker showed up at the event out of mutual respect.
It was good to see Taker in his complete attire as he was completely fit and walked without a crutch. It also can be a sign to make a comeback in the near future.
