Almost 30 years after making his WWE debut, The Undertaker has shocked the wrestling world with his first non-sanctioned WWE booking in nearly three decades.
Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, will be appearing at the Starrcast II wrestling convention in Las Vegas on May 25, one day before eagerly-anticipated show Double Or Nothing.

While Undertaker won’t be wrestling at the convention, this is a historic moment as he has never made an appearance like this before.
Reporting last week in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer revealed that Undertaker had begun taking non-WWE bookings, with his fee reportedly  $25,000 per hour for his appearances.
The news is notable after he removed all WWE references from his social media profiles, which came as a surprise considering his long-time affiliation with the company.
Undertaker last wrestled for WWE last November at WWE Crown Jewel, where he and Kane lost to Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
At 53, Undertaker is not likely to wrestle much in the future, but he has been synonymous with Wrestlemania over the years, and was expected to compete at the 35th Wrestlemania in April.
The Starrcast II convention takes place in Las Vegas at the same time as All Elite Wrestling’s first show, which has led to some fans believing that there is a chance Undertaker could wrestle for them.
Owned and funded by Fulham owners Shad and Tony Khan, All Elite Wrestling is partially named after popular wrestling group The Elite, consisting of The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, Marty Scurll and Adam Page.
AEW have already signed the liked of Chris Jericho and Pac to exclusive deals, but signing The Undertaker would be one of the biggest wrestling news stories of all time.
