After the Undertaker's match with Triple H at Wrestlemania 27, the crowd watched as the Deadman was carted off the stage on a stretcher.
Many thought it was kayfabe, and a storyline reason to keep the Undertaker out for an extended period of time.
However recent reports have surfaced that the Undertaker suffered a very real injury towards the end of the match that lead to him being carted out of the ring.
After he made Triple H tap out the Hell's Gates, the plan was for the Undertaker to do his one-knee eyes roll back celebration, and then walk gingerly up the ramp.
However when he rolled his eyes back, for the first time in history, they got stuck. After frantic, but useless attempts to roll them back, he tried calmly to walk back up the ramp with no sight at all.
After seeing that this plan would not work, he feigned injury and exhaustion, which he lead to falling near the edge of the ring. He signaled under the ring to Hornswoggle, who quickly burrowed through the bowels of the Georgia Dome to alert the doctors of the situation.
An emergency surgery was performed later that night and the Undertaker is slowly regaining full motion of his eyes.
