On this week’s Raw, Shawn Michaels addressed the reason for his retirement and gave some very strong hints for a match between him and The Undertaker one more time. Dave Meltzer talked about this on Wrestling Observer Radio.
This is what he had to say:
“Here’s the thing, at the end the idea in theory would be pushing the Undertaker Triple H match but when it was over that wasn’t the match that you were pushing. Nobody was coming out of this segment going ‘I can’t wait to see Undertaker and Triple H.’ They were saying ‘I can’t wait to see Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. Which means if anything they weakened Australia.”
“Shawn’s there anyway and it doesn’t matter but they still made it so the big match isn’t Undertaker vs Triple H. Undertaker vs Triple H is a step to the big match which is Undertaker and Shawn. Perhaps that could be at Mania?”
“But the one they pushed him to wrestle in was the Saudi Arabia show because that’s the real money show but it’s one of those two. It’s awfully early to do an angle for next year’s Mania but it’s not impossibly early it’s been done before.”
The two times these legends have faced off against one another, they produced some of the best matches in WWE history. So, needless to say, a third and final match will be more than welcome.
