The Undertaker is due to make his return at WWE Survivor Series 2012 on November 18th.
WWE’s creative department have been informed of Taker’s targeted return and are likely drafting a potential program for him.
F4Wonline.com reports that WWE officials believe Undertaker has several more matches left in him after his fine performance at WWE WrestleMania 28 in his Hell in a Cell match with Triple H. Of course the plan all along has been for The Undertaker to compete at next year’s WWE WrestleMania 29 in April and the current idea is for him to put the streak on the line against Brock Lesnar but by bringing Taker back as early as November, it almost suggests that he will have another program first and perhaps he’ll be involved in the WWE Royal Rumble in January.
It is interesting that if Undertaker does fight Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and they have some kind of showdown at Survivor Series, it begs the question of how they could keep that feud going strong until April? Lesnar is under a limited dates contract with the WWE and by the time he has appeared at the 1,000th RAW and build-up to August’s SummerSlam where he will face Triple H, he will only have a handful of dates left. The last word we heard was that Lesnar would not appear on TV after SummerSlam until January’s Royal Rumble.
The better storyline is obviously Lesnar chasing after Taker’s streak, rather than Taker going after Lesnar, so we have to wonder what WWE have planed here with Taker returning as early as Survivor Series?
Meanwhile WWE officials have spoken to Undertaker about making a one-off appearance at Raw’s 1,000th episode.
