New Report on Undertaker’s Health, Will He Skip WrestleMania?

Posted by Matt Boone October 24, 2012 10 Comments

- New details are coming out about The Undertaker’s status for WrestleMania 29 and it’s said that The Deadman is not in good shape at all. One thing that wasn’t reported after his WrestleMania match with Triple H this year is that the hip replacement he had a few years back was damaged pretty bad.

There is talk that some of the surgical work he has had done over the past few years is really beat up to the point that he’s back to square one. Taker had been going to see specialists in New York but he is so beat up now that WWE has been flying the doctors to his home in Texas instead.

There is also a lot of talk within WWE that if he does end up doing anything at WrestleMania 29, it likely won’t be a big time physical match like we are used to. As we have noted, there is talk of having Taker work the Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant with the idea he can do a few memorable spots before being eliminated.

Right now The Undertaker is not being figured into any major WrestleMania plans internally. The feeling is if he wants to do it and feels like he can do it, WWE will make room for him. It wouldn’t be the first time but it’s possible could see The Undertaker skip a WrestleMania in 2013.

Some people within WWE are under the impression that the “end of an era” hype from this year’s WrestleMania against Triple H really was the end as far as big time WrestleMania matches for The Undertaker go.

      See, if taker would of just retired a couple years ago he probably wouldn’t be in such bad shape. His fault, now cuz he couldn’t let go he’s probably not gonna be right for the rest of his life. The great ones just don’t know when to let go just as bad as fans not letting go.8’ll probably get so much sh-t, but it’s the truth and this post about taker is the proof.

      Never in the article was it mentioned that Taker will never have another WM match. It’s just telling us that he might skip WM 29, which isn’t the first time he’s skipped a Wrestlemania. He skipped Wrestlemania 2000. Not having him on WM 29 won’t be a big deal since I’m pretty sure The Rock and Lesnar will have all the star power necessary to make WM29 interesting, plus Taker can heal and come back strong for WM30. So yeah, read the article before commenting.

      Undertaker = true legend.

      If he retired tomorrow, I’m sure nobody would complain. Give him an awesome retirement ceremony, where he he is ‘buried’ for one last time!
