A few months back, the WWE Universe grew concerned about The Undertaker’s WWE future because he was seen in some pictures walking around on crutches, which naturally made a lot of people think his wrestling career had ended abruptly. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case.

The reason he was on crutches was because The Undertaker recently underwent hip surgery, which has reportedly put him in very good health heading into his WWE return that will begin this Sunday at the Royal Rumble and into Wrestlemania 33. However, there is some concern.
According to F4Wonline.com, The Undertaker’s recent hip surgery is only a temporary fix for his health issues. There is a real possibility that he could suffer an injury over the next couple of months if something goes wrong in the ring, which could be the end of his career.
The Undertaker will likely need full hip replacement surgery at some point. However, he’s trying to put that procedure off until he is able to end his career on his terms. It begs the question of how many more matches The Undertaker has left before something serious happens?
The Undertaker is set to compete in the 30 man Royal Rumble match on Sunday, January 29th, and he’s also expected to work a match at WrestleMania 33, but the identity of his opponent is unknown at this point.
