Rumors of the Undertaker’s return for the Royal Rumble match are in fact accurate, as the Deadman announced Monday night that he’ll enter the match with 29 other competitors on Sunday, January 29.
‘Taker’s career was thought to possibly be over after his Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas, but WWE may be prepping the legend for one more run.
Rumors have also spread that Undertaker’s opponent may be none other than John Cena, who happens to challenge A.J. Styles for the WWE championship at the Royal Rumble as well.
If Cena wins and ‘Taker is able to outlast his opponents, WWE could be preparing a sendoff for the Deadman with a WrestleMania main event between the two superstars.
If Undertaker doesn’t end up with Cena as a WrestleMania opponent, other potential options are Styles, Roman Reigns, or even Randy Orton.
Other matches that Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer mentions as likely for WrestleMania: Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar (again), Seth Rollins vs. HHH (finally), and Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal.
