The Undertaker's urn played a large role on "WWE Monday Night Raw" as the company pushed the CM Punk and Undertaker Wrestlemania match. According to a report from PWInsider on March 16, it looks like the WWE will continue to utilize the urn as a prop in the feud.
At a house show in Connecticut, CM Punk came to the ring with Paul Heyman carrying the urn. The two then stood in the ring and played catch with it, mocking the Undertaker the entire time. According to the report, Heyman and Punk alluded to the fact that it wasn't just Undertaker's urn, but that Paul Bearer's ashes were in it as well.
For those new to the WWE, the Undertaker's urn was originally the source of the Dead Man's power. Paul Bearer carried it, using it as a symbol to help the Undertaker's power increase and allows whoever holds it to control the Dead Man. Whenever Bearer would hold the urn out, Undertaker would kneel before it, and there even matches where Undertaker would grow weak if the urn was taken away.
Paul Heyman, ironically, was part of an angle with Undertaker in 2004 when he gained possession of the urn and gained control over the Undertaker himself. Of course, the WWE has moved on from that history and now the Undertaker's urn is serving as a sort of trophy in the battle between CM Punk and Undertaker heading into Wrestlemania.
