WWE legend The Undertaker had lot of rivalries in his decades-long career in WWE. The Deadman has inhabited many personas throughout the years, and worked through both the Attitude Era & the Ruthless Aggression Era. However, he wasn’t fond of everyone he worked with.
Taker admitted that working with WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels wasn’t his favorite thing when both of them were together in WWE. Michaels had a wild run. He emerged as the representative of the new generation in the mid-nineties, when the flag of WWF was at an all-time high.
Michaels has been both at the top of the entire promotion and the very bottom. The Heartbreak Kid‘s behavior and his substance abuse issues are a secret to no one. Whatever the case was behind the scenes, HBK did his best in the ring as he has had many memorable matches.
While The Undertaker revealed a moment when him and HBK had achieved the greatest harmony they ever could, he still admitted to not liking the fellow veteran back in the day as well. Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, Taker said:
In my career, this is as close to perfect. I mean there is never perfect but this is as close to it as I ever was. And there was just magic that night. All I had to do was be The Undertaker that night because I knew Shawn was going to be Shawn. And for some reason, we have always had unbelievable chemistry. I mean, from the very get-go, and I’ve told people this several times through the course of my career, I didn’t always care for Shawn as a human being. But there’s nobody I’d rather work with.
Shawn Michaels is still loved by the WWE universe. His involvement in NXT 2.o and especially with Carmelo Hayes means that he is going nowhere. However, negative sentiments towards him are not very rare, as commentator Michael Cole has also called him a “d*ck” in the past.
