Big news coming out about "The Dead Man" as he is expected to return later this year.

That's right, folks, it appears The Undertaker will be making his return prior to his normal WrestleMania spot.

According to WrestlingInc.com:

WWE's creative department are targeting Survivor Series on November 18 for the return of The Undertaker.

After undergoing two major surgeries in the past year and performing suitably at WrestleMania XXVIII, many company employees believe he has several more matches left in the tank and will almost certainly compete at WrestleMania XXIX.

If this indeed proves to be accurate, I would expect to see a huge buildup as Survivor Series was the official debut of The Undertaker and obviously his first pay-per-view. So they could easily break down the lineage of his career, stemming from Survivor Series on.

This move would also prove that the WWE is invested in Survivor Series as it will be the second year in a row that they bring in the big guns for the event. Last year, The Rock made his triumphant return to the ring at Survivor Series and it proved to be a profitable move by the WWE.

Ultimately, we will have to wait and see if The Undertaker is even ready to come back that early. However, if this proves to be true a Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match, it could be an ideal feature match for this pay-per-view.

Do you think bringing The Undertaker back prior to WrestleMania is a good move?
