WWE Rumors: Update on The Undertaker Undergoing Full Hip Replacement Surgery in New York
The Undertaker seemingly retired at WrestleMania 33 after losing to Roman Reigns. He left his signature hat, gloves and trench coat in the middle of the ring before leaving. It was a symbolic gesture for The Undertaker and fans will miss the character on television.
One of the possible reasons for The Undertaker's retirement is his age and health. At 51 years old, "The Deadman" has a lot of wear and tear on his body and he's no longer the performer he once was. His last several matches were not great and it's the right decision to hang it up.
Several reports also noted that The Undertaker needs full hip replacement surgery. He postponed the operation and opted for a quick fix late last year in order to perform at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 33.
The 51-year-old legend was delaying the full hip replacement surgery until his wrestling career is over. Some fans still believe that The Undertaker is not retired but undergoing the procedure will surely and effectively end his career.
According to Jamie Gordon of The Sun, The Undertaker was spotted in New York City on Wednesday with his wife Michelle McCool. They were at the David H. Koch Pavilion Hospital for Special Surgery on 575 East 70th Street in Manhattan.
There are no confirmed reports why The Undertaker and his wife were there, but it is presumed that he will undergo tests. After the presumed tests, he will surely undergo the full hip replacement surgery to relieve him from the pain that has been torturing him for the past year.
David H. Koch Pavilion Hospital is ranked as the best medical facility for orthopedics in the United States and second for rheumatology, per US News. The Undertaker is in really good hands and he will surely make a full recovery from the potential surgery.
Many fans want him to return but it would be better for him to stay retired and enjoy his family life. However, it won't be a bad idea to have him as a guest on the Stone Cold podcast on the WWE Network later this year.
