Big news coming out of Nashville, Tenn, as it appears that the Undertaker took in a Nashville Predators game Sunday night. Keep in mind, this would normally just be a throwaway news story.

However, Monday night's Raw also happens to be live from "The Volunteer State," so, this very well could mark the return of "The Dead Man."

According to WrestlingInc.com:

It looks like The Undertaker may be appearing on tonight's RAW. Below is a photo sent in by reader Justin, taken backstage at the Nashville Predators hockey game on Sunday night in Nashville, the site of tonight's WWE RAW.

Ultimately, if this is the case, it would seem to me that he is a lock for WrestleMania 29, which is great news, especially considering recent reports that had him less than 50 percent ready to return.

Overall, I will be a bit surprised if he does return Monday night. Mostly, because WWE did not put together any sort of vignette to promote his comeback. The fact is, he has almost always had some sort of mysterious video package letting people know to watch for his return.

So, if Monday night is indeed the night for his return, it would mark the first time in recent years that he returned with zero build-up.

Keep in mind, WWE is in full-blown WrestleMania mode right now, so having a surprise return of this caliber isn't completely out of the realm of possibility.

Let's face it, WWE has been doing a solid job at bringing back big-name stars this year. Having "The Phenom" return Monday night would only add to the company's prowess and really give it some juice as "The Grandaddy of Them All" draws closer.

In the end, this is just speculation at this point, so anything is possible. That being said, it couldn't hurt to watch Monday night's Raw, just in case.
