The Undertaker has not been seen on WWE television since defeating Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas. The latest WWE rumors have revealed an update on the status of The Undertaker and the possibility of returning for another match at next year’s WrestleMania.
There were several reports in the past several months that The Undertaker is done with wrestling and he has officially retired. However, a recent photo of him with Shane-O-Mac in a Texas bar surfaced and WWE rumors about his return increased, per Pro Wrestling Sheet.
As seen in the photo above, The Undertake dyed his hair black, which is something he does when he is about to the WWE. There some WWE rumors that suggested The Deadman will be with SmackDown Live.
However, The Undertaker might have dyed his hair black for a different occasion. You can see in the photo below that The Deadman and his wife, Michelle McCool, attended a wedding.

The WWE does not need The Undertaker right now and vice versa. The 51-year-old needs to be beside his wife, who is undergoing treatment for skin cancer. But if all things get cleared up by 2017, expect The Undertaker to have a match at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando.
According to The Inquisitr, The Undertaker was scheduled to face John Cena at WrestleMania 32 but those plans were scrapped when Cena injured his shoulder. However, it is very possible that this dream match will happen next year.
But it should be noted that these are just WWE rumors at the moment. The WWE is on a roll right now and they don’t need The Undertaker for now. They will need his star power at the Grandest Stage of Them All wherein his name is synonymous with the event.
