WWE Rumors: The reason Undertaker vs. AJ Styles may not happen soon
The Phenom's hip surgery seems like the only thing preventing this dream match from happening.
When The Undertaker returned to last week’s episode of SmackDown Live, he warned each and every Superstar, involved in the Brand vs. Brand, traditional Survivor Series match, that they would feel his wrath, if they let Team Blue down at the PPV.
His warning did not fall on deaf ears, as the Blue brand overcame the odds, and emerged victorious, over their counterparts.
While things ended favourably for Team SmackDown, the altercation between Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles left a blemish on their victory. Both the Superstars now have a reason to fear The Deadman, albeit the WWE Champion is expected to take the major brunt of The Undertaker’s fury.
According to Wrestling Observer, a feud between AJ Styles and Undertaker is in works, and the two Superstars might round it off at Royal Rumble, in January, in a WWE Championship title bout.
However, according to a report by givemesport.com, there is one obstacle, which could stumble WWE’s plans.
Undertaker underwent a hip surgery, in October and was seen using crutches as a support, after the surgical intervention. Taker is still recovering process, and whether he’ll be fit for Royal Rumble is a matter of primary concern for the WWE Officials.

The Phenom vs. The Phenomenal One is a dream match for many, but with Taker’s injury struggles, the match now appears a vague possibility.
The Phenom, on his return, established that is is no longer a Wrestlemania spectacle, but is back digging holes and taking souls. This was his first in-ring appearance, since Wrestlemania 32, where he overcame Shane McMahon in a spot infested, Hell in a Cell match.
While he was absent for the major part of the year, his much-awaited return, was worth the wait.
