The title regin of the Undertaker is about to come to a close, as the Deadman is going to have to shut it down for at least six months as he will have surgery for a torn bicep muscle. The decision was made after Taker saw Dr.James Andrews this past week. Andrews advised Taker that wrestling much longer with the injury was out of the question, and it was at that point the decision to shut him down was made.
With that said, it appears that we will have a new World Champ on SmackDown next week, as Batista is going to get the belt back as the two will go at it in a steel cage. What they do with the belt from there is anyone’s guess. I for one think they may shift a RAW guy over to SmackDown, possibly Randy Orton, who is due to be punished for his hotel room trashing in Europe.
