WWE RAW: Why Undertaker and Shawn Michaels could have a great WrestleMania bout – Jim Ross | WWE | Sport


Michaels, 53, and Undertaker, 53, had a stunning confrontation last Monday night on RAW and teased a third encounter between them ahead of WrestleMania 35.

The Heartbreak Kid retired in 2010 after losing to Taker for the second consecutive year at WrestleMania and claimed he has remained in the sidelines out of respect for his rival and because he is a man of his word.

The Phenom, though, wasn’t convinced and claimed HBK has stayed retired because he is afraid to get back in the ring with him.

The Deadman seemed to be indirectly challenging The Icon to return to the ring so that he could beat him again.

Their confrontation was meant to promote the final ever clash between Undertaker and Triple H ahead of next month’s WWE Super Show-Down but ended up teasing Michaels’ return from retirement.

According to Wrestling Inc, WWE Hall of Famer and legendary announcer JR claims that the two wrestling heroes could put together another classic battle even though they are no longer in their prime.

Ross said during The Jim Ross Report: “I had the privilege of being there for WrestleMania 25, 26, and many prior to that, with those guys and Triple H, so I’ve had a lot of experience with those three men and their matches.

“I think one of the best matches I ever called or ever saw was Triple H and Shawn, when Shawn came back from his four-year hiatus. It was awesome. I mean, it was textbook. He didn’t miss a damn beat.

“So anyone that thinks that Shawn and The Undertaker couldn’t have a good match, think again please. And if the glass is always going to be a half empty, they’re not in their prime. Well, no s**t. They’re not in their prime. Wow, what a revelation.

“Of course they’re not in their prime physically. Mentally, I suggest to you, they’re probably the best they’ve ever been mentally to tell a story, to bring you in, to captivate you, to capture your attention.

“It’s done psychologically more often than not. I just think that they can give us a great match if and when it’s going to happen.”

JR believes that another match between Undertaker and Michaels may indeed take place because WWE would never dedicate so much air time teasing a bout that will never happen.

The former voice of RAW also claims that WrestleMania would be the ideal setting for this highly-anticipated battle because it would make for an extraordinary match card at the Show of Shows.

Ross added: ”If we said Undertaker and Shawn were going to be figured in some way at WrestleMania in New York City, MetLife [Stadium], whatever, New Jersey, everything, you guys know.

“That would be huge. That’s huge. That’s huge. It’s going to sell out anyway no matter who’s wrestling. The name, the brand, the event sells out. The card sells Pay-Per-Views and [WWE] Network subscriptions.

“That’s why the card [has] got to be extraordinary for these extraordinary events, these tentpole events. And that’s why I think that there is a better than average chance.

“You don’t develop this much time on television without going somewhere with it. Why make me think that that could happen and give me that great of a sales job to measure my level of anticipation and enthusiasm regarding the storyline without somewhere down the road being able to deliver it? So time will tell.”
