The man once viewed as "invincible" is now "vincible."
On Monday Night Raw this week, The Undertaker opened up the show with an interview. In it, he wanted to raise the stakes a little bit. He challenged Triple H to a "No Holds Barred" match at Wrestlemania XXVII. In the wrestling business, that means that the match has already been confirmed.
On the surface, it sounds like a very appealing change to the match because it means that we're going to be seeing a lot more brawling than usual.
Beneath that, though, lies a secret that most wrestling fans don't want to admit.
The Undertaker is almost done.
Kevin Nash recently revealed to the internet wrestling community that The Undertaker is not at 100 percent right now. Being an old-school tough guy, he's opted to work through his injuries before taking time off. Doing that, though, meant that his shoulder was taking more punishment than it should have. Initial tests have revealed that it's damaged beyond repair.
If he was at 100 percent (or even close to it), The Undertaker would be able to pull out another classic match—especially since he'll be in there with a capable in-ring performer in Triple H.
Unfortunately, though, we now have to lower our hopes to prevent ourselves from being disappointed.
