The Undertaker’s minor hip surgery was a success. He had been suffering from hip and back pain from quiet some time, but just worked through it. The goal of the surgery was to relieve the pain in both areas.
WWE isn’t pressuring Taker to come back early. Rather, they feel that it’s a good time for Taker to take time off, despite the fact that there are other top guys currently taking time off as well.
With Taker out of the picture, wrestlers such as Chris Jericho, Edge and Rey Mysterio have been stepping up as locker room leaders.
