Bengaluru, Dec 4: We did not trace the Undertaker on Smackdown Live for a couple of weeks. It was expected as we have already got the main event match announced for the TLC PPV in November.
Since the championship scenario is all set to culminate within a day from now, it was expected that no sort of renewal in the title picture will happen.
So, quite evidently, the Phenome did not appear even if he reminded that he will show up if betrayal happens for the Smackdown brand at Survivor Series.
But, latest reports do suggest that we don't have to wait longer for his return. According to a report from cagesideseats.com, The Undertaker will show up on Smackdown live once the TLC PPV is over.
The result from the TLC PPV will cause him his return to the blue brand in some capacity. Since AJ Styles will need a new opponent after his supposed championship-win, WWE might schedule the Undertaker for him.
The Deadman hinted that he is back on his home turf of Smackdown when he appeared on the 900th episode of the show. The indication was that he will be available for regular appearances on the brand, further.
So, it is inevitable that he will be included in the championship scenario in the near future. It was reported earlier that Taker is rumored to face AJ Styles at the Royal Rumble PPV. The big match will help to sell out tickets at Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Pro-wrestling News.com further reported that the Undertaker will win the WWE World championship from Styles at the Rumble event.
This would further set up a title match with Cena at Wrestlemania 33. It might turn out to be the career ending match for him whereas Cena will get his monumental occasion of tying Ric Flair's 16th world title reign.
As of right now, the scenario looks so perfect from WWE's perspective. However, plans can change anytime and we have to wait for Cena's return during the end of this year.
