• The Undertaker & Shawn Michaels Turn Down WrestleMania 35 Match, Offered $5.5 Million For Future PPV Match

According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE officials pitched The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels for one final time at WrestleMania 35, but both Taker & HBK turned it down.

Undertaker & Michaels were then offered a total of $5.5 million (they’ll split the purse 50-50) to have a one final singles match against each other at the next Saudi Arabia PPV (which will now day place in June), but both Legends have been unmoved by this offer so far.

We’ll keep you updated regarding Taker & HBK’s status for the next Saudi Arabia PPV.

As of this writing, The Undertaker is scheduled to appear this Sunday at WrestleMania 35, interrupt Elias’ performance, deliver a Tombstone Piledriver and leave (Taker isn’t scheduled for a match as of this writing).

The Undertaker originally wanted to have a match at WrestleMania 35, but WWE officials nixed his shortlist of opponents (one of them was Finn Balor).
