We noted before how the Undertaker was spotted heading to New York a day before SummerSlam. While he did not appear on the PPV, it was later reported that he was backstage during it.
Though now it appears that Taker did more than just hanging out backstage at SummerSlam and a new report about his activities has started the rumors of the former Champion returning to ring once again.
Per report from Pwinsider (Via Wrestlezone), while the Undertaker stayed away from cameras, he worked out in the ring before the SummerSlam PPV went on air and the site notes that it’s a possible sign of his in ring return.
Furthermore, it’s being said that Taker could make his return as soon as next month’s No Mercy PPV to set up a possible match with John Cena at Survivor Series.
It’s worth mentioning here that according to a report, one of the reasons why WWE is filling up No Mercy card with some strong matches is to head into the NFL season strongly and avoid massive drops in the ratings.
So the return of Undertaker certainly feels like a move which the company can pull off to create some massive headlines and keep the ratings up in the upcoming months.
However, it’s notable here that these reports seem a little overblown at this stage and unless WWE gives any hint of The Dead Man’s return, it should only be considered a possibility.
