WWE officials have confirmed both The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels a for the Jan. 9, 2017, episode of Monday Night Raw in New Orleans, Louisiana.
That will be just three weeks before the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, which is scheduled for Jan. 29 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. There is speculation WWE is trying to beef up the Royal Rumble in 2017 given the size of the event.
If you remember back to Undertaker’s return on the 900th episode of SmackDown he said “WrestleMania will no longer define me” which may mean he will enter himself into the Rumble.
As for Michaels, he’s not wanted to come out of retirement but he did make a special appearance at WrestleMania 32 earlier this year, so it’s entirely possible he’ll get a role at the event.
