Monster Jam has stated that Grave Digger the Legend will in fact return; however, they are saving it for a specific driver, most likely referring to Weston Anderson. It will also likely get a new chassis, since the old one is now Grave Digger 32.
In 2010, it was announced that Grave Digger the Legend would debut in 2011 together with Son-uva Digger, driven by two of monster truck legend Dennis Anderson's sons, Adam and Ryan, respectively.
In 2011, Grave Digger the Legend debuted on the former Taz chassis. However its team truck Son-uva Digger was delayed after Ryan received an injury early in the year. As a fill in for the truck, a second Grave Digger The Legend was made with Tony Farrell driving. At the World Finals, Ryan then made his debut replacing Farrell's truck.
In 2013, Grave Digger the Legend won the Monster Jam World Finals 14 racing championship. In the later part of the year, Monster Jam released a concept of a new design for Grave Digger the Legend for the 2014 season, changing its classic silver/blue design to a purple design with the Grave Digger ghost on the side. However, due to much protest from fans, including from Adam himself, the idea was cancelled and the truck remained silver and blue.
In 2014, the truck won its second World Finals Racing Championship.
In late 2015, during the 2016 Monster Jam season kickoff, Adam showed he moved to Team Grave Digger.
In 2016, Adam moved to Grave Digger. The truck's chassis was converted to Grave Digger 32 for 2017. Grave Digger the Legend is retired.
