Why would WWE have taker return at a house show.. ffs
The WWE would have UT return at a house show probably to have him see how he feels in the ring, wear off some ring rust since he's been out a year, and so UT can gauge for himself whether or not he may be able to physically show up and go at WM. Plus the house show was in Texas near where UT lives IRL so it is the height of convenience for him. Makes perfect sense, especially being four or five weeks out from WM. WWE needs to start setting the plan for WM in stone so they now how to build for it. Personally, I think CM Punk - Taker is perfect, Punk will give Taker a great match and...wait for it...I think Punk should be the one to end the streak with minor interference or a distraction from Lesnar/Heyman. Personally I'd like to see UT locked in anaconda vice and ref drops the hands three times with no response from UT. Lesnar heat sets the stage for a final WM30 match against Lesnar for UT to win. Both Punk AND Lesnar would get so much heat from ending the streak it would be UNREAL.
UT gets inducted into WWE HOF next year and wins last match at WM avenging Lesnar interference and riding off into sunset. Punk gets to claim he's only one who ever beat UT at WM. It would put Punk over the top.

Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads
Undertaker has been in negotiations with WWE about working Wrestlemania 29 this year. While his health is obviously a factor, the main reason he was holding out was over money.
We can confirm Undertaker met with Vince McMahon and Triple H about Wrestlemania two weeks ago in Nashville, TN. We reported on February 14th he was still a possibility for the show.
As of this writing we are unable to confirm Undertaker for Raw on Monday or that he is officially in the plans for Wrestlemania 29. He lives just over an hour and half from Waco, Texas (the site of Saturday night’s live event) and it’s doubtful he returned for one non-televised bout.
A source that has been following the negotiations said Undertaker wanted to test his body before a match and given the fact he worked a tag bout [at Saturday's Smackdown live event], it makes sense.
