Latest Backstage Update On Shawn Michaels Returning To The Ring In WWE

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE sources confirm that during the Undertaker vs. HHH match at the Super Show Down next month, an angle will go down to set up the tag team match that will see Taker and Kane team up to take on HHH and Shawn Michaels, who would be coming out of retirement, at Crown Jewel on November 2.

For years, Michaels had refused to end his retirement in the past and actually turned down a lucrative offer for the Greatest Royal Rumble in April but seemingly has agreed now because of the massive pay day he has been offered. Due to the amount of money that WWE is getting for the Saudi Arabia deal, the company can pretty much open their wallets and pay talent an unheard of amount – perhaps into the seven figures – in order to secure them for the show, which is exactly what has happened with Michaels.

The speculation remains that the tag team match is a precursor for Michaels to return in a one-on-one match likely at WrestleMania to take on the Undertaker.
