• Shawn Michaels’ Expected In-Ring Return Date Revealed
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is expected to come out of retirement and current plan is that HBK will have his comeback match at the next mega show in Saudi Arabia on November 2.
Meltzer also noted that HBK isn’t expected to work a singles match if he returns for the Saudi Arabia show:
“The working idea internally right now is that Michaels is coming out of retirement. Right now it is not for a singles match, and it is targeted, if not scheduled, for Saudi Arabia on November 2.”
Michaels is possibly working the Saudi Arabia show because the Saudi Arabia Prince is a fan of Old School wrestlers.
Meltzer noted back in May that the Saudi Arabia Prince asked for the following 3 legends to work the Greatest Royal Rumble event – The Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior & Yokozuna.
While The Undertaker worked the event, the prince didn’t know that Warrior & Yokozuna are no longer with us.
