This past May, the Undertaker was scheduled to appear at Starrcast II, a non-WWE wrestling fan convention. For a performer who almost never breaks character and has such loyalty to Vince McMahon, this was an unanticipated, but welcomed surprise. But shortly afterwards, the Undertaker canceled his appearance, reportedly at the behest of Vince McMahon.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Ringside News), the Undertaker has signed a new WWE contract, and it is long enough to be considered a lifetime contract. This both a good and a bad thing; it means we'll be seeing the DeadMan for years to come. But it also means that we're unlikely to get the unedited, no holds barred interview that many of us had been anticipating and hoping for.
