WWE Have Confirmed The Undertaker's Return
WWE have confirmed that The Undertaker will be returning on-screen in January.
The Phenom has not been seen on TV since his main event match with Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33, a bout that was widely viewed as his last with the company given that he left his hat, trench-coat and gloves in the middle of the ring to close out the show.
But he will be making a return when the 22nd January rolls around. WWE confirmed on their official website that when they celebrate the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw in a few months time, The Deadman will appear alongside fellow legends Shawn Michaels and Kevin Nash on a special edition of Raw.
The show will emanate from the Barclays Centre in New York, a venue WWE regularly run, but part of the broadcast will also air from the iconic Manhattan Centre, which was the home of Monday Night Raw's debut episode.

It promises to be a very entertaining show to mark a big milestone for WWE, but fans will most probably The Undertaker's appearance is merely a one-off, cameo deal.
His send-off in Orlando in April following a second loss at Wrestlemania was poetic, as he rode off into the sunset.

The wrestling legend, real name Mark Callaway, slugged it out with Roman Reigns in the No Holds Barred main event in front of 75,000 fans and though it took four spears to put him away, he was beaten by the upstart in a real passing of the torch moment.
Legendary announcer Jim Ross returned and provided commentary for the match, which was said to to be at the request of 52-year old 'Taker'.
For wrestling enthusiasts, it was a special moment full of emotion. If The Undertaker does get back in the ring again, it renders that memorable farewell meaningless. Plus, he didn't exactly look in peak physical condition in his last match.
But still, given what he's achieved in the wrestling business, seeing him make his entrance one more time in January isn't exactly a bad thing - and it's already garnering plenty of excitement and interest.
