Sean Waltman Talks HBK vs. Taker

Sean Waltman On Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker Rumors, Their RAW Segment

During his ALL IN / Starrcast recap special edition of his X-Pac 12360 podcast, former WWE Superstar Sean Waltman spoke about the RAW segment with Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker, and how it will likely lead to The Heartbreak Kid coming out of retirement for one more WrestleMania showdown against “The Dead Man.” Featured below are some of the highlights from the show.

On RAW segment with Shawn Michaels and Undertaker setting up a match: “It was a magical moment. First Shawn comes out, and he can carry something on his own just fine as he kills it on the mic every time… Then Taker comes out and it was the best Taker mic work I’ve ever seen. It was tremendous, very compelling between those two. I loved it. I’m pretty sure, I may be going out on a limb here, but I’m pretty sure this is planting a seed for some kind of Undertaker vs. Shawn [match]. Whether it’s a singles or some kind of a tag or triple-threat or something, I see that as a seed being planted.”

On HBK’s history with Undertaker being something that could pull him out of retirement and WrestleMania being the likely venue: “It’s the history those two have. [Michaels] can still go out there and do a lot of the stuff [in the ring that he did before]. But he doesn’t want the pressure, I think from talking to him. It’s not gonna be Undertaker vs. Shawn at WrestleMania 26, where they had one of the greatest matches ever. Shawn going out there with A.J. or somebody, I think that the expectations of that match [would be too high]. It’s easier for [Michaels and Taker] to go out there and have a match. They can tell a story, there’s so much history. There’s just so many reasons why it’s better for them to do that.”
