Whilst there is plenty of Royal Rumble speculation, one man has remained quiet, and he is arguably the biggest name of them all. When the Undertaker made a return to WWE in November, he said he was back to “take souls and dig holes,” but then he disappeared again. The Deadman said that he “refused to be defined by Wrestlemania” before helping the blue team to win the Survivor Series against their WWE Raw rivals.
The Undertaker is yet to confirm that he will compete at the 2017 Royal Rumble but chances are that announcement will come on the next issue of WWE SmackDown live.
As Sports Keeda points out, The Undertaker has only emerged from his crypt around Wrestlemania time in recent years. At SmackDown Live 900, the Deadman said he would be back “sooner than usual” in 2017. The Undertaker hasn’t won the Royal Rumble for a decade, so an appearance, and a win, at this year’s event might well set up a huge match with John Cena at Wrestlemania 33.
By the time Wrestlemania 33 comes around The Undertaker will be 52-years-old and it has been rumored that this may be the Deadman’s final year in WWE. If that is to be the case, then the WWE Universe would love to see The Undertaker Vs. John Cena as the Deadman’s final bout.
