The Undertaker is set to return to WWE at the upcoming Sept. 10 episode of Monday Night Raw at Madison Square Garden, but it's unknown when he'll put the wrestling boots back on.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Ringside News), Undertaker will not be wrestling when he returns to Raw in a couple of weeks. The Observer also outlined that he was not brought back for the sake of helping ticket sales.
Some might wonder if The Undertaker will be added to the Clash of Champions card when he returns, as the Sept. 10 episode of Raw takes place six days before the pay-per-view. However, there aren't any plans in place for him to wrestle at the event, either. As such, it's up in the air as to when he will compete in the ring again.
The future Hall of Famer is one of the many returning legends for the Oct. 4 SmackDown Live 20th anniversary special. That show also mark the first episode on the Fox Sports broadcast.
It was reported earlier this month that Undertaker is under a lifetime contract with the WWE, and since Vince McMahon always gives him a fancy payday, it's hard to envision The Deadman retiring any time soon. He's wrestled a handful of matches this year, and Undertaker has shown that he's still in good wrestling shape.
Undertaker's last match took place at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on July 14, where he and Roman Reigns teamed up to defeat Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre. A month earlier, he defeated Goldberg at the Super ShowDown event. Now, just have to wait and see when he'll compete next. You never know how long it'll be.
What This Means
Perhaps WWE will set up Undertaker's next feud and storyline when he appears on Raw and SmackDown in the coming weeks. Otherwise, it's anybody's guess what will happen when he comes back on the Sept. 10 episode of Raw. Either way, it promises to be another memorable return for the WWE icon.
