WWE's Undertaker set for multiple surgeries, no in-ring return planned


While doing the media rounds for next year's WWE WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, past headliner The Undertaker spoke with The Ticket Sports Radio about his current health status.

Undertaker (Mark Calaway) revealed he is set for multiple surgeries in the coming months and joked about extending the wait time a bit longer.

"Both my hips are partial hip replacements already. I need a right knee. I have surgeries lined up, but I have to wait until hunting season is over," he said.

He noted to the Dallas Morning News recently that while the "wrestling bug" still bites him, he feels that he can't perform at a level and "give people what they expect at this point." Although the passion is still there, he admitted, "Ican’t deliver physically on what people’s expectations are" and acknowledged that his time has "come and gone."

Undertaker hasn't competed on WWE TV since WrestleMania 36 in March 2020 where he defeated AJ Styles in the cinematic boneyard match.
