Big Update On The Undertaker’s Return & WM27 Plans



With The Undertaker scheduled to return to WWE television on the Monday, February 21st episode of WWE RAW (the night after Elimination Chamber), we’ve got an update on his health and what’s being discussed for him for WrestleMania.

The planned Undertaker vs. Wade Barrett WrestleMania main event has been reportedly scrapped. This feud made sense as Wade Barrett was the leader of Nexus when the group destroyed the Undertaker and put him out of action at Survivor Series, but WWE now has a totally different direction for the Dead Man.

According to a very reliable WWE source, the current plan is for The Undertaker to wrestle Triple H, with Shawn Michaels serving as the special guest referee. The match would have a stipulation of Career vs. Streak, with Triple H being forced to retire if he cannot defeat the Dead Man.

The Undertaker has been doing a lot of rehab on his surgically repaired shoulder and WWE is very confident he’ll be on track to compete at WrestleMania. While nobody is expecting a WrestleMania classic as in previous years, he should be able to work a good singles match.
