Undertaker's Health the Cause for the Uncertain WrestleMania Build & Short Match

Posted By James Walsh on 04/14/18



In the build to Wrestlemania, The Undertaker never showed as John Cena repeatedly called him out and challenged him to a match. Even at Wrestlemania, it took the Dead Man some time before he came out. Once the two actually had a match, Undertaker won in under three minutes (2:46). According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via Wrestling Inc), the reason for that is the Undertakerís health.

WWE wanted everyone to know that Undertaker would be in New Orleans, but they also wanted to downplay its status as a big match, as people would expect a more epic encounter if it had a normal build. Undertaker had hip replacement surgery after his match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33 in 2017. Thereís no word on how heís doing now or if heís going to be able to work a longer match against Chris Jericho at the Greatest Royal Rumble. The two will have a casket match on April 27 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Itís also unknown when or if Undertaker will make another WWE appearance.
