PWInsider is reporting that The Undertaker is expected back on WWE television in the coming week to set up his WrestleMania plans.
As noted, The Undertaker is expected to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 next month. Taker has made a handful of television appearances since defeating Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32, with his most recent being in the Royal Rumble match in January, where he was eliminated by Roman Reigns.
The following is courtesy of wrestlezone:
– As of a few weeks ago, the plan in WWE was for Roman Reigns to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, and if that’s the case, The Dead Man could be making his return to TV at WWE Fastlane tomorrow night, however that has yet to be confirmed.

WZ reader Lee Smith has sent in word that Amazon’s UK website is currently listing a pre-order DVD combo pack consisting of this year’s WWE Elimination Chamber and WWE Fastlane PPV events.
The promotional image for the Fastlane DVD is picturing both The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar, which could be a potential spoiler for tomorrow night’s PPV. You can check out the image below, and the listing on the Amazon site at this link.
Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar has been confirmed for WrestleMania 33, so the listing below could be an indication that Lesnar might get involved in the WWE Universal Title match tomorrow night. Additionally, The Undertaker vs Roman Reigns is tentatively planned for WrestleMania, and with PWInsider reporting earlier today that The Dead Man is planning to return to WWE TV next week, he could also be making an appearance at WWE Fastlane.

The DVD cover photo could just be for marketing purposes to get people to order/preorder the DVD so WWE could make money off of it. I can see Taker appearing at Fastlane. If he does, he could cost Reigns the match against Strowman as a way of getting him back for eliminating him (from behind) in the RR although that was the object of the match. Taker knows that as he’s been in many of them. I think he was angry that Reigns eliminated him from behind and then yelled “THIS IS MY YARD NOW!!” I could see Taker’s involvement in the Reigns/Strowman match making it a 3-Way to include Strowman at WM but don’t think that’ll happen as I think if SHow vs Shaq doesn’t happen, then Show vs Strowman may be the backup plan. Question I have is will Taker’s Fastlane appearance if it happens be a physical one? Many of Taker’s “appearances” over the years have not always been a physical appearance. It could be a bell toll much like it was at the 2004 RR, a speaking promo like he did on RAW the night he accepted Bray Wyatt’s WM31 challenge. I think a physical Taker appearance is most likely for RAW whether he get a physical appearance, non physical appearance or no appearance at all at Fastlane.
