The Undertaker looked back at his WrestleMania 25 match with Shawn Michaels and said they created magic that night. Taker mentioned that the match was as perfect as it could get:
“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.”
The Phenom revealed that although he wasn’t a big fan of Shawn during the early years of The Heartbreak Kid’s career, the two still had unbelievable chemistry inside the ring:
“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.”
The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels match started a four-year saga
At WrestleMania 25, despite kicking out of The Tombstone Piledriver, Shawn was unable to break the streak. At WrestleMania 26, The Heartbreak Kid laid his career on the line, declaring he’d retire if unable to break the streak. Once again, The Phenom prevailed, and Shawn Michaels bid farewell to a stellar career.
At WrestleMania 27, Triple H stepped up to The Undertaker. It all came to a head at WrestleMania 28 when Triple H and The Undertaker battled once again, this time inside Hell in a Cell with Michaels as the special guest referee.
The Undertaker managed to win all four encounters, but every match took something out of The Deadman. The four matches have now become a part of history and one of the best long-term storylines ever created in WWE.
