Report: Undertaker Needs More Surgeries

After wrestling in what appeared to be his retirement match this past Sunday at WrestleMania 33, The Undertaker reportedly will be headed back to the operating table.

Dave Meltzer, on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, said that Undertaker "is getting more surgeries now."

Meltzer observed Undertaker had been delaying a hip operation. He is thought to need a full hip replacement, a procedure that had been postponed until after he retired.

Undertaker had surgery last fall, and was photographed on crutches in pictures that were posted on social media. 

The Undertaker faced Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 33, a contest that Reigns won, handing The Undertaker just his second loss in a WrestleMania match. After the final bell, he removed his hat, gloves, and jacket, leaving them in the center of the ring as he made his exit. He then went to ringside, briefly visiting with his family before making his way back up the aisle as the fans chanted in a salute to him.

With an in-ring career dating back more than three decades and a career in WWE that began in 1990, The Undertaker has been working a part-time schedule for the past several years, working less than 20 matches between his first WrestleMania match with Triple H at WrestleMania 27 in 2011 and what appears to be his retirement match against Reigns.
