The Undertaker and CM Punk wrestled a terrific match at WrestleMania 29 but many figured we wouldn't be seeing The Deadman until the Road to WrestleMania XXX.

It was a pleasant surprise when he turned up on Raw and had a standoff with The Shield. Unfortunately, don't expect this to lead to anything in the near future.

PWInsider (via WrestlingInc.com) is reporting that there are no plans for The Phenom to enter another feud soon:

"The Undertaker was said to be doing fine after WrestleMania 29, considering his physical condition. Despite the tease with The Shield on Raw, word is that he isn't expected to wrestle anytime soon."

There were concerns about his physical condition months prior to WrestleMania (via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter) but 'Taker quelled them with his outstanding performance at the Showcase of Immortals.

It's remarkable that Undertaker didn't get injured during his match considering The RockTriple H, Brock Lesnar and CM Punk (each via WrestlingInc.com) all found themselves hurt in some way after 'Mania. 

Given that, it's disappointing to see The Deadman not return to the ring for another feud. However, it's not surprising and perfectly understandable.

With over 20 years in the WWE, The Phenom has earned the right to pick and choose when he works.

This does raise a few questions though. Was Raw the last time we'll see The Undertaker until next year in any capacity? And who will team with Team Hell No to take on The Shield?
