Amidst the reports of Shawn Michaels possibly facing the Undertaker at Survivor Series, a new interview has made many questions if he was actually the first choice to break the streak.
Inside the Ropes recently posted a Shawn Michaels interview from their official YouTube account, where he revealed that he was offered a match against Undertaker after his retirement.
According to Michaels, he was offered this bout about 4 years after his retirement in 2010, which would mean sometime around WrestleMania 30 where Brock Lesnar broke the streak:
“It was probably about four years after I retired, there was an idea that was, it was with ‘Taker again. But it was just from a creative standpoint, it was easily the most intriguing idea, one of those ones where my wife said, ‘oh, that’s pretty cool’. And that was the one, when I said no, she said ‘you really are done’.”
Now the big question is if this bout was actually for WrestleMania 30 and if Michaels was WWE”s original choice for breaking the Dead Man’s legendary WrestleMania streak?
