Only 264 days until WrestleMania in Arlington, Texas. We better get a head start on the Undertaker watch.
Taker's trainer Joe DeFranco posted the following picture to his Twitter account, getting the dirt screens all aflutter at the prospect of a his returning for a shot at a 23rd victory on The Grandest Stage of Them All:
The Dead Man is a Texas native, and his participation, along with fellow Texan Stone Cold Steve Austin, has been rumored since WWE announced the show would be held in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. And seeing as he left his WrestleMania 31 against Bray Wyatt without the usual whispers of being severely banged up or contemplating retirement, seeing him looking ripped so far ahead of next year's show will surely fuel speculation that a showdown with Sting or similar big money match is on the horizon for next Spring.
Of course, we'll probably also hit a patch of "Taker looks horrible!" posts between now and then, too, but this an auspicious start for a 'Mania build, yeah?
