Despite being involved in two of the best matches in WrestleMania history, it has been well documted that Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker, who of wrestling greatest legends, are not the best of friends outside of the squared circle.
To promote the awesome Last Ride documentary series, The Undertaker and his long-time rival Shawn Michaels have both been speaking to the media, with HBK opening up about his issues with The Undertaker outside of the ring.
Despite have undeniable chemistry inside the ring, Shawn Michaels spoke to ESPN about how he did not get on with Mark Calaway outside of the ring when the pair were much younger.
“I think in some ways, when we were younger, we were frustrated because we had so much unbelievable natural chemistry in the ring with each other, and had zero of it outside the ring,” Michaels said. “At the time, I was an extremely difficult person. He was less so. There was clearly never any real trouble between the two of us. We just did not care for one another because we were so different. He clearly didn’t like me based on who I was and my reputation. And I didn’t like him based on who he was.”
Fast forward several years, and The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels are said to be very different people and have both buried the hatchet and reconciled their differences. Shawn’s last two matches have both involved The Undertaker, with his final match in 2018 seeing DX take on The Brothers of Destruction in a frankly unwatchable bout in Saudi Arabia.
