Undertaker's WWE career has been surrounded with mysteries and so has been his status with the company since his Hell In A Cell match at WrestleMania 32.
Many people believe that the 51-year-old veteran has no reason left to step foot inside the WWE ring again, however, there are some who are still hopeful that the phenom will return once again and The Dead Man will rise from his grave when the time for Wrestlemania 33 comes around.
Former WWE commentator Jim Ross recently gave words to the thoughts of the wrestling community while replying to a question in the Q&A section of his website.
JR who is famous for the long blog posts on his website covering various wrestling related topics was asked if the former World Champion is done with wrestling, to which the wrestling legend replied by saying that he sees him wrestling one more match at the 33rd edition of WrestleMania. He said:
"Nope. Taker will retire when he's ready but I assume that well might be sooner than later. I could see one more bout at WM33 but I'm assuming."
It's notable here that Undertaker last appeared in a WWE ring back in WrestleMania 32 where he competed against Shane McMahon in a Hell In A Cell match.
While the former World Champion managed to win his match against Shane'O'Mac, he was heard saying afterwards that it was his last wrestling appearance. Ever since then, we have heard more than half a dozen rumours regarding the health of the Phenom and a possible return.
During the last SummerSlam season, it was heavily rumoured that Vince McMahon wanted Undertaker to wrestle in a match at the biggest event of the summer and he also made an offer to the Last Outlaw regarding this.
Later it was reported that the former Hardcore Champion has declined the offer but it was said that Mr. McMahon and other officials were still hopeful that they would persuade The Lord of Darkness for a match at WrestleMania 33 when the event comes close.
Although these expectations recently took a big hit when some photos of Taker went viral in which he is seen using crutches to walk around.
After seeing these photos many believe that Undertaker will most probably not get cleared to wrestle ever again let alone wrestling at WrestleMania 33 which is about 6 months away.
What really happens and if the American Badass ever steps foot inside a wrestling ring again is yet to be seen but for now, the words of Jim Ross have given new hope to all the people who want to see the phenom fighting at the grandest stage of them all for one last time.
