While many are speculating that Undertaker’s return is confirmation that he will be competing at WrestleMania 29, that is not necessarily the case. A WWE source believes that Undertaker was “testing the waters” to see if he could actually work a quality match for WrestleMania. No word on what decision was made following the match, however the source said that he expects Undertaker to work WrestleMania.

Last October it was reported that the hip replacement Undertaker had done several years ago was badly damaged during his match with Triple H at WrestleMania 28. Undertaker was so beat up last fall that WWE flew doctors to his home in Texas instead of having him see specialists in New York. Over the last year Undertaker had major shoulder and hip surgery, which made it impossible for him to do any serious training for some time according to reports. It was reported that he couldn’t work his upper body because of shoulder rehab, and couldn’t do any lower body because of the hip rehab.

The Undertaker has also reportedly stated that he doesn’t want to return and have a mediocre match, and would only make a come back if he could give a good performance.

Don’t be surprised to see Undertaker work more live events to help him get back into ring shape if he does end up competing at WrestleMania 29.
