For the three years following WrestleMania XXVI The Undertaker worked one match a year, and it seemed he would be a WrestleMania exclusive until his retirement.

However, The Phenom surprisingly wrestled on last week's Raw and SmackDown shows, and it may not end there, either.

According to a report by F4Wonline (via wrestlinginc.com) The Undertaker could work a match at WWE's upcoming Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

The Undertaker was not scheduled to wrestle at May's Extreme Rules pay-per-view but with CM Punk missing the show and John Cena possibly being off the pay-per-view due to his injury, there is now talk that Taker may be brought in to add star power to the line-up.

The report is, of course, referencing John Cena's recent Achilles injury, which would be a devastating blow to the company if it means time off for the WWE champion.

As the old saying goes, desperate times call for desperate measures. Depending on how severely Cena is hurt, the WWE could be in a very precarious position.

The event will feature Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H in a steel cage, but that won't be enough to balance the absences of both John Cena and CM Punk.

Should Taker wrestle, it's a fairly safe bet that it'll be against The Shield in some way—we would likely see a rematch from the six-man tag we saw last week but with some stipulation added.

What gimmick would you like to see added to the match? Do you think The Phenom will wrestle in the first place? Let us know in the comment section below.
