Every year WWE fans look forward to watching WrestleMania. For over a decade now, one of the show’s star attractions have been The Undertaker. What makes him so special is his undefeated streak at the event. However, his appearance at this year’s WrestleMania 29 event is still up in the air.
It was expected a few months ago that Undertaker was fit and ready to be able to wrestle at WrestleMania 29. WWE does not force him to appear every year, but Undertaker instead decides for himself. He usually returns if he’s healthy enough and if he thinks it’s worth his time to do so.
Ever since his last match at WrestleMania 28 with Triple H, his body has not been able to recover from injuries as fast as it used to. Obviously as you get older, your body becomes more fragile too. This is currently what Undertaker is experiencing right now and his appearance at WrestleMania 29 is looking doubtful. It’s speculated he’s able to wrestle at the event, but he keeps changing his mind on his decision.
Undertaker was due to face CM Punk at the event. Punk is the company’s top heel and it was a natural fit for him to face off with Undertaker. The two previously feuded back in 2009, but Punk was not a huge star back then as he is now.
If Undertaker decides not to wrestle, this puts a dilemma to Punk’s spot at WrestleMania 29. Most of the top guys are already booked to face each other at the event. WWE should decide on an alternative opponent for Punk soon if Undertaker does indeed decide not to wrestle this year.
