Update On Undertaker’s Return, Christian’s Status, Jerry Brisco
— WWE.com published a storyline-driven article on Thursday that brought The Undertaker into the conversation. The writer of the article – Kevin Powers – is wondering if the Deadman will return to WWE at Survivor Series, the same event where he made his debut in 1990 and where he won his first championship one year later.
Powers also wonders if The Undertaker will hold off on returning until WrestleMania 28. “If The Phenom is to reemerge in time to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All, he will be attempting to extend The Streak to 20-0. With that in mind, it is possible that The Deadman may not be seen until The Show of Shows.”
WWE sources believe that if Undertaker returns before WrestleMania he will not be wrestling yet, and it will only be to promote his match at ‘Mania. Even so, it’s still not 100% that he’ll be returning for WrestleMania at all.
— Jim Ross updated his Twitter account with the following: “As I understand it Christian did not break his ankle while on tour.”
He then tweeted an update on Jerry Brisco: “Spoke w/ Jerry Brisco today. Drs found reason for his strokes & repaired it. Jerry will be home Saturday. He’s feeling great today. Relieved”
— The official website of the Cauliflower Alley Club states Killer Karl Kox, a headliner in the 1960s and 1970s, died Thursday at the age of 80.

The National Wrestling Association issued a statement regarding his passing: “The Cauliflower Alley Club is reporting the death earlier today of Killer Karl Kox. Kox wrestled all over the world and was a huge star in Australia, feuding with the likes of Spiros Arion, Mark Lewin, and others.
