WWE legend The Undertaker stunned many with a surprise return to competition at WWE's live event in Waco, Texas, according to Global News Sports reporter Arda Ocal on Twitter:

Ringside News also posted on The Undertaker's shock return, relaying photos of the legend's return to competition from #WWEWaco on Twitter:

The Undertaker returned to the ring at tonight's WWE live event in Waco, Texas. The following photos come from #WWEWaco on Twitter.

It looks like Taker teamed with Sheamus to defeat Damien Sandow and Wade Barrett. Stay tuned later for more details. 

Only last week, The Undertaker was declared to be at "less than 50 percent" for his annual appearance in WWE, and it looked like he would miss WrestleMania 29 (per PWMania.com)—thus making his showing in Waco a completely unexpected occurrence.

What impact his return will have on WrestleMania 29 is unknown, but his return certainly raises some key questions and decisions as a result. 

The Undertaker is a remarkable 20-0 at WrestleMania events and draws a plethora of attention and anticipation to any event, being one of the stars of WWE.

He would no doubt do the same at WrestleMania 29—should he compete—and would definitely add in further gloss to an already star-studded card.

His age and health in the big events have been questioned, and it seemed that the WWE may not get many years left from The Undertaker. However, his latest return has thrown all of that back into the mix, with a return to WrestleMania 29 now the most logical move for the legendary wrestler to make.

After all, it wouldn't be WrestleMania without The Undertaker.

Will The Undertaker return to WrestleMania 29?
