• Spoiler On Shawn Michaels’ Next RAW Appearance & Plans Moving Forward
According to PWInsider, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is set to appear on the October 1st edition of Monday Night RAW in Seattle, Washington. This will be the go-home edition of RAW for WWE Super Show-Down in Australia.
Shawn Michaels will be in Triple H’s corner for the ‘Last Time Ever’ match between Triple H & The Undertaker (with Kane being in Taker’s corner).
WWE teased HBK coming out of retirement big time when he appeared on RAW last time and got confronted by The Undertaker.
We noted yesterday that Wrestling Observer has confirmed that Shawn Michaels will be coming out of retirement and will compete at WWE Crown Jewel PPV.
The plan moving forward at this point is for HBK and Kane to get involved in the Super Show-Down match and that will result in a tag team bout between The Brothers of Destruction (The Undertaker & Kane) and D-Generation X (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) at WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia on November 2.
