The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels are two legends in the professional wrestling business. They took part in ”instant classic” matches throughout their careers.
HBK spoke to ESPN, where he talked about his early relationship with The Undertaker. They had great matches in the squared circle, but could not get along outside the ring.
He admitted they did not like each other as both came from entirely different backgrounds. It was especially frustrating that they could not get along as they had great chemistry in the ring.
“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,” Michaels said. “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.”
However, now the two do not hold the same resentment they had for each other. They have both changed a lot over the years and are completely different individuals.
HBK and Taker last squared off in a tag-team match at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
