• Shawn Michaels Reveals Why He & Undertaker Didn’t Like Each Other

WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels had some of the best matches with The Undertaker throughout his career.

At first, they didn’t respect each other, but by the end of Michaels’ career, the mutual respect grew so much that Michaels agreed to have his career ended by The Deadman.

While speaking to ESPN, Michaels revealed why he and Undertaker didn’t like each other back in the day:

“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.

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.”
