I never in a million years thought I’d see this one coming. The Undertaker has reappeared after going A.W.O.L. since having his streak broken by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. The Undertaker has resurfaced as part of the ice bucket challenge with a mysterious video that you would expect from the dead man.
The Undertaker is arguably the most protective of his character in the pro wrestling business. Rarely do you see this man out of character. While he is out of character here, he still keeps it mysterious. The lights are kept dim but you could hear what I would guess is his little girl’s voice in the background having a great time with her daddy and the challenge. Check it out for yourself!
As far as an actual update or status on the Dead Man that is unknown at this time. The rumor immediately after WrestleMania was that Taker would indeed retire and not lace up the boots again. However, there have been rumblings lately that he may possibly be up for one more match. Sting has certainly been pushing for that match. Any chance Sting gets a chance he drops the fact that he’d love to wrestle Undertaker at WrestleMania.
I still think the money is in a Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker rematch. I have not heard a peep about it but I think after a year of Heyman and Lesnar mocking the victory, revenge for Taker would be a huge money match. There are all kinds of scenarios you can book to accomplish this. I do think that should be the last match with a stipulation made that if Taker loses he retires. The Sting match is nice but the money is on Taker-Brock 2 in my opinion.
In the meantime the best we are going to get is a dimly lit Undertaker pouring ice on his head. I’ll take it!
