The Undertaker has not been seen on WWE television since defeating Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania 32 in April. The latest WWE rumors suggest that his health is deteriorating after recent photos of him surfaced online.
Back in August, photos of The Undertaker with a dyed hair and Shane-O-Mac at a bar in Austin, Texas went viral. Many believed that The Deadman is preparing for his return to SmackDown Live but it was just two friends catching up. Also, The Undertaker attended a wedding that is why he dyed his hair black.
However, a couple of photos surfaced recently with The Undertaker in crutches. Fans are now speculating that the 51-year-old legend’s health is deteriorating which means his wrestling career is probably over.

In a recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer noted that The Undertaker is really hurt and he uses to crutches in order to get around. He added that fans might have seen the last of The Phenom and his last match was with Shane at WrestleMania 32.
“Obviously, The Undertaker is hurt. He was on two crutches, not just one. People are always asking about Undertaker at WrestleMania, and usually, when it’s October, the usual word is when I ask people who are friends with him are like ‘He ain’t coming back this year, he’s done,’” Meltzer said.
“And then around the end of November, it’s like ‘Well, maybe he’s gonna come back,’ and then by December he’s got a match. That’s the cycle every single year. Put it this way, I looked at those pictures and I thought, man, he may be done for real this time,” he added.

According to The Inquisitr, The Undertaker was scheduled to face John Cena at WrestleMania 32 but Cena injured his shoulder. The dream match between the two superstars is still one of the plans for WrestleMania 33 but it will depend on The Undertaker’s health.
Nevertheless, these are just WWE rumors at the moment and should be taken with a grain of salt. The Undertaker still has five more months to recover from whatever injury he has but if he does not wrestle anymore, it is a sad day for wrestling fans.
