I am one who have always favored "part timers" in WWE; but every time Undertaker returns I find myself wishing to see more of him. I actually wished he would have been at the Rumble as a surprise entrant, and wish he would have been on the Chicago Raw last week; and I think his WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar could have been built better had he appeared. 

I also would love to see him in a match on Raw. Yes I know that is a long shot, and I see HBKDX's argument in the Undertaker vs Brock thread that overexposure would dilute the specialness of an Undertaker appearance and/or match (although Russ' comment there was more so about how more appearances would effect his character, but the same principle applies); but I do think that him having a match or two won't hurt. Certainly he can do more than one match a year. 

I guess with Undertaker I'll take what I can get; but I want more than the tease.

Thanks to Pac for the sig.

29 holes for 29 souls. Gotta say I did like Taker spitting a rhyme with his threat.

So even though he was a Smackdown guy in November saying he's going to be around more, he now shows up on Raw and says he goes where he wants when he wants.

He's the bookies favourite to win the Royal Rumble match, which is an interesting thought.

Yeah they obviously pulled the plug on whatever storyline he had going on with Smackdown and how there would be hell to pay of team smackdown lost the survivor series match. Boring.

Whatever, I guess he's on his road to wrestlemania again.

Is this how we get Taker vs Cena? Taker wins the Rumble and Cena beats Styles? If so that's pretty shitty.

The fact that he's showed up on Raw and they seem to have abandoned his being completely loyal to Smackdown angle suggests to me that we might see The Undertaker facing a Raw guy at Wrestlemania.

If they were going with the rumoured Taker vs Cena match then surely it would have made sense to continue with the Smackdown storyline and have him appear on the blue brand. Of course this could have all just been a ratings boosting mission for Raw and the Cena/Taker match is still in the works.

There has been talk of a Roman Reigns/Undertaker match for Wrestlemania, if they are planning a Reigns heel turn having him beat the Deadman would really cement that with him being only the second guy to upset The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, that would be a Mania loss that would actually make sense rather than how they gifted the streak ending win to Brock Lesnar.

Rumours i've heard is it's not going to be Cena vs Taker, it will be Taker vs a Raw guy, and that raw guy isn't going to be Strowman, so whoever eliminates Taker from the Rumble is getting him at WM...so is that going to be someone debuting from NXT ala Samoa Joe, or will it be a returning Finn Balor?

What I would LIKE to see is Reigns vs Goldberg and Samoa Joe vs Brock Lesnar come from the Royal Rumble PPV. Let Lesnar stew in his loss to Goldberg as a punishment for embarrassing the WWE with his UFC drug failure, because make no mistake, whether the WWE understands it or not, it IS a HUGE embarrassment to the WWE, and there really does need to be SOME kind of repercussions to him embarrassing the company like that, and if there isn't it just makes WWE look worse in the eyes of the fans; jobbing him out to Goldberg in a minute a 26 seconds or whatever it was and that being the end of it would satisfy the critics.

That aside Undertaker vs Finn Balor's demon would be pretty sweet actually. But then again how does the demon persona mesh with him as leader of the Balor Club??? I honestly don't know, anyone else here a fan of Balor's before he came to the WWE, because I'm out of my depth there.

Hopefully Cena loses at the Royal Rumble, or wins by DQ or CO or something like that to draw out the feud until WrestleMania so he can tie Ric Flair's record then. It deserves to be a WrestleMania moment.

The beauty of this situation is that the World title scene at Wrestlemania is wide open, no one knows which direction they are headed in with it which is great as usually by now thanks to spoilers and predictable booking most of the major Mania matches are sewn up and pretty obvious.

One possibility is that a debuting Samoa Joe will face The Undertaker at WM, if this is the case they really need to give Joe the big win as what better way to establish him as a killer on the main roster.

I think the best match up, this year, is John Cena. Without anything else specifically being built for him, as of yet, it's the biggest match up I can see for him, and everything else would seem kind of disappointing. AT the same time, it has only been in the past decade or so that 'Taker had specifically HUGE match ups. Maybe I'm being spoiled by the Shawn Michaels, HHH, Brock Lesnar, etc match ups and forgetting the Giant Gonzales' and the like.

Great pop for his appearance. I prefered it more than the other week because I wasn't aware of it, which is always better.

It was shit however that he turned up just to stand there like a statue with his eyeliner and trench coat on.

Wouldn't it have been better if he'd have made some sort of statement?
