The Undertaker pulled off a controversial win over Brock Lesnar at Sunday's SummerSlam pay-per-view, but once again, the Deadman walked away from a match with the Beast Incarnate worse for the wear.  

According to fan videos taken from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Undertaker can be seen noticeably struggling to make his way up the ramp before collapsing to the ground:

WWE has not given an update on the reason for Taker's collapse or his status for Monday night's Raw, which is also in Brooklyn. However, Lesnar's advocate, Paul Heyman, boasted about the incident on Twitter:

Astute fans remember when Undertaker faced Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, he was taken to a hospital with a concussion and was not seen on WWE programming for nearly a year. The Deadman, motivated by endless prodding by Heyman, returned at July's Battleground pay-per-view, interrupting Lesnar's WWE championship match with Seth Rollins to set up Sunday's rematch.

While Taker looked far better this time around and got the win, there were times his body appeared to be on the brink of giving up—both in kayfabe and shoot. His gasps for air late in the match were audible on ring mics, and much of Raw will likely be built around Taker tapping out to Lesnar's kimura lock, unbeknownst to the referee.

We could get a good idea of Undertaker's medical status based on whether he appears on Monday's SummerSlam postmortem.
