Photos of The Undertaker on crutches have surfaced and people on the web are freaking out.

Back on April 3, Taker supposedly stated he was calling it a career after he defeated Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 32. Recent photos could possibly explain why we haven't seen the Dead Man since then.

Taker has been out and about in his native Austin, and photos show that he is using crutches to get around.

Some are reacting to the photos by leaving comments expressing sympathy and compassion for the wrestler, while others are just leaving sad face and tear emojis.

Apparently, if you are on crutches it means that your body is breaking down—and while that may be true about The Undertaker given his 30+ year career as a professional wrestler—isn't it possible that he's just recovering from a recent surgery or injury?

Back in 2009, the WWE star had hip surgery but has continued to work in a reduced role over the last seven years.

Has mortality caught up with The Undertaker? I guess we'll have to keep an eye on next big WWE pay-per-view events to see if he makes a return.
