The Undertaker is an American professional wrestler signed to WWE. He is the company's most tenured performer, and he's also the only remaining active competitor from the very first episode of WWE Raw in 1993. Calaway began his wrestling career with World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) in 1984. In 1990, Calaway signed with the World Wrestling Federation and The Undertaker was born. The rest, as they say, was history!

Rumor: Is WWE Planning Goldberg vs. The Undertaker?
P.S. Credit to danja20101 for posting a link to the following report in the comments board under the previous report.
There have been rumors for the last several months about former WCW World Champion Bill Goldberg potentially returning to WWE for a final run.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that WWE has selected The Undertaker’s opponent for this year’s Wrestlemania, but he was not an active member of the WWE roster.
Although there have been a few other names that the rumor mill has caught such as Kurt Angle, or Sting. The past rumors of Goldberg returning to WWE have heated up with many believing that WWE plans to have Goldberg vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas.
In the past, we’ve thought about the potential for Goldberg to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, but a return seems strange right now.
Perhaps at one point, this would have been an epic match of two men with two of the greatest streaks in wrestling. Today, both of these men aren’t in their prime and neither one has wrestled a full-time schedule in many years.
The great issue is what does it accomplish for either man? The Undertaker isn’t going to gain anything from defeating Goldberg, especially when he hasn’t appeared in WWE since 2004.
If Goldberg were to return for this match at Wrestlemania and defeat The Undertaker, is he going to stick around WWE for an extended period of time. Won’t a loss like that hurt The Deadman.
Despite all the reasons this match may not happen, it would be an amazing and electric atmosphere and provide a great Wrestlemania moment. If this is what WWE has in store for The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, we’re going to know within the week.
For a guy who hasn’t wrestled since 2003 (no I don’t count his WM20 match with Lesnar an actual match because of what took place from bell to bell, not much wrestling there if I remember correctly), he did a good looking Spear on Scott Steiner at the Legends of Wrestling event that was held at Citi Field not that long ago. But WWE will not have Taker lose to one Spear so Goldberg will have to shake off the ring rust if he’s gonna get in the ring with Taker. Here’s some point to consider:
1. Goldberg must have ring rust and may not be in his prime due to not wrestling a match in over 10 years.
2. The Invasion angle and Sting vs HHH are living proof that WWE will put its own talent over WCW talent. Goldberg had a run in WWE, but is mainly remembered for his run in WCW. I do not think they will have Goldberg beat Taker.
3. Goldberg’s been openly criticizing WWE as a company and his run there. But Vince is known to doing whatever it takes for business. Warrior, Sammartino, Bret Hart left, had people believing they were gone forever, but eventually came back. Maybe Goldberg will follow. Then again, maybe not.
4. Goldberg’s said he’s open to discussing with WWE, but it has to be a respectable business discussion and he wants to be treated with respect. HHH may be the man to have that talk as Sammartino stated he came back to WWE (for the HOF) because of how HHH came and spoke to him about it.
5. Goldberg said he’s open to one more match so his son could watch him. Would Goldberg be okay with losing in front of his son or does he not care?
6. On JR’s podcast, Austin and JR agreed Goldberg should return and they’d love to see him back in WWE and in the HOF. And Goldberg recently teased a return of sorts to WWE by a WWE 2K17 appearance. Could one of either of these be hints to a return, HOF Induction and match? Anything’s possible.
I believe the report is wrong about Taker. I’m not saying that as a fan. I’m saying that purely as a viewer who has seen recent photos and matches of Taker. Yes, he’s a part-timer. So what? Fact is he is in better shape now then I’ve ever seen him (well maybe aside from 2007) and is most definitely still in his prime. His performance proves that. Being a part-timer doesn’t mean you’re not in your prime. It means you don’t work a full-time schedule for whatever reason(s.) Taker vs Goldberg is a dream match I wouldn’t mind seeing. I don’t know how safe Goldberg is or ever was in the ring. He seemed stiff and unsafe to me in all honesty. I don’t want a concussion or Taker to be forced to retire due to some kind of injury as he deserves to go out on his own terms.

There was a poster out a couple hours ago that someone posted about Undertaker’s Wrestlemania 32 opponent and it has John Cena. Now, a lot of people are saying it’s fake because the poster doesn’t have the WWE Network Logo on there. If you guys look at it, let me know what you think. Thanks.

I feel sorry for brock . He got no suitable opponent this year
Brock vs bray watt …!! His match is wasted
What i think is bray wyatt will beat brock by strong intrference of strowman and by this way wwe will get a huge push for a wrestler I mean Wyatt and
will also build up a match for brock against strowman for summerslam In which brock will win .. I guess
If Goldberg is really coming . And not facing taker . I hope he faces brock once again.. after that worse match between them in history of wrestlemania when stone cold was the guest ref.
I felt it’s a joke not a match
They were just finishing Thier contracts.
So may be we can see a true match now
Between Goldberg and brock

Poster’s are made in advance to promote something. In pro wrestling, with injuries and whatnot, things can and often do change at the drop of a dime. The poster has Taker pictured with long hair. He hasn’t had hair of that length since WM27. Sure his hair was a bit longer late last yea at Survivor Series than it was at WM31, but wasn’t at the length shown in that poster. The Taker pic in that poster is used by WWE for promotional purposes.
It is definitely something. We’ll have to wait and see as to what that something is. Either what the poster suggest will happen, or WWE created it to tease us and create talk, or it’s just fan-made.
People believe Taker will return tomorrow night on RAW. That’s a possibility. But he didn’t return on the post-Fast Lane RAW last year, in fact he didn’t appear in person till WM31. I can see him appearing in person prior to WM this year, doesn’t mean it’s tomorrow night though. We’ll have to wait and see.

“All directions are pointing to Cena vs Undertaker at Wrestlemania 32 and the lead up of that feud, will very well start Tonight on Raw.”
That is a totally wait and see deal, Mark.
@Taker’s #1 fan:
If you can get hold of the actual contents of the report and post a link to the report here, I’ll post it and credit it you.

I know, it is a wait and see kind of deal but something will happen Tonight. Obviously, I can’t confirm that but something will happen I think. Maybe that award Tonight, will be given to Cena and then Undertaker interrupts and returns on Raw Tonight and then he looks up at the Wrestlemania 32 sign and then Cena looks up at it too and then we get, John Cena vs Undertaker for Wrestlemania 32. Who do you think Anan, will win the award Tonight? Do you think, it’s to start a feud like John Cena vs Undertaker or what? Let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks.

@Deadman Inc & Taker’s #1 fan:
Taker’s #1 fan may be right. But if Shane does face Taker, it’d be suicide to go at it alone.
I don’t see the following happening, but it’d be cool if after the match, not during it, Sting’s seen in the rafters during Taker’s celebration with the cameras catching him just silently staring Taker down. Sting will appear at WM32, but aside from the HOF class of 2016 making an appearance, I see nothing else for Sting that night. Certainly not as far as Taker goes.
