Undertaker advertised for SmackDown on April 23 in London

David Seto

Well, this is interesting: Undertaker is being advertised for the WWE SmackDown taping on April 23 in London, England, a full two weeks following his WrestleMania 29 match against CM Punk.

When dealing with advertising in pro wrestling -- really, when dealing with anything in pro wrestling -- it's best to exercise extreme caution. After all, plans change at a moment's notice and the card, as the famous disclaimer states, is always subject to change.

That said, this is too interesting to pass up.

When WWE returns to the O2 Arena in London, England, for a SmackDown taping on April 23, a full two weeks after WrestleMania 29 on April 7 in New Jersey, Undertaker will be there. From the arena advertising:

"The Undertaker returns! It's official, WWE SmackDown on 23 April will feature one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time, The Undertaker, in a London exclusive not to be missed. See The Phenom live for the first time in over four years."

WWE is also pushing the date on Twitter:

What does this mean? It's hard to say, really. Undertaker is almost surely going to go over CM Punk at WrestleMania to run his streak to 21-0. Punk, for what it's worth, isn't advertised for any shows after 'Mania and is strongly rumored to be taking some time off to heal some nagging injures, not to mention battle burnout.

As of yet, there's no word on any plans for Undertaker to appear on any shows following WrestleMania outside of the aforementioned SmackDown taping.

Any of you Cagesiders care to venture a guess as to what he'll be doing there?
