World Wrestling Entertainment veteran superstar The Undertaker will be making his return on Monday Night RAW next week, February 29<sup>th.

In a report by WWE.com, ‘the Deadman’ will be appearing on the said RAW episode, which will be held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

His appearance will happen just a week after head honcho Vince McMahon made the announcement that his son Shane would be facing the Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 32. Earlier, in last week’s RAW episode, the younger McMahon appeared and declared his intent to take control of RAW, which led to Vince giving the condition that in order for Shane to do so, he had to win against the Undertaker. 

WrestleMania 32 will be taking place on April 3<sup>rd at the AT&T Stadium (also known as the Dallas Cowboys Stadium) in Arlington, Texas.

In another report by Geno Mrosko for Cageside Seats, the upcoming RAW appearance will be the Undertaker’s first one in 2016. The last time he was seen on television was last November; around the time Survivor Series 2015 was about to take place.

Meanwhile, an update on former WWE heavyweight champion Roman Reigns’ physical condition was released, in the light of the most recent RAW episode.

In the said show’s storyline, current champion Triple H was beating Reigns up, where the latter was seen with blood coming from his face. The day after that, the WWE announced that Reigns’ nose had needed surgery. Speculations then arose about Reigns’ real condition, but a report by Geno Mrosko for Cageside Seats clarified it all.

Mrosko’s report gave analyst Dave Meltzer’s opinion on the matter. Meltzer noted that news circulating among the talent said Reigns’ did have surgery on his nose, as reported by WWE.com, the day after the said RAW episode. But it wasn’t because of what happened on that episode. Rather, it was from a pre-existing condition he had that needed medical attention.

In a follow-up report by Mrosko, it was confirmed that Reigns underwent nasal reconstruction surgery for his deviated septum.

“He also had a turbinate that was also fixed as well as a reduction of a nasal fracture Reigns will continue to undergo observation as he recuperates but a timetable for his return to action has not yet been discussed,” said WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann.
