After his work in Puerto Rico several weeks ago, there is backstage concern about the health and long-term viability of The Undertaker.
In terms of his last hiatus from the ring, several sources are claiming that The Undertaker actually had hip replacement surgey after WrestleMania, not minor surgery which was originally reported. Regardless, there was concern at the time that the problem may stop him from competitive in the ring again.
Many wondered why his match at Breaking Point only ran around the nine minute mark, and it is because he has been complaining of suffering from pain lately and his visibly slowed down as a result.
Considering all of this, there has been talk that Taker may be looking at retirement after next year’s WrestleMania.
