Shawn Michaels made his announced return to WWE Programming on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, and the Undertaker followed him not too long after.
What’s interesting is that Michaels’ retirement was brought up multiple times during this segment. It made a lot of people wonder if this is an indication of things to come and if the company has any plans for these two to compete against each other.
During the latest episode of his X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, Sean Waltman talked about the whole angle and claimed that WWE is planting seeds for a match between these two.
Sean first discussed the return of both the legends and said that the mic work Taker showed during the episode was the best from the former Champion he has ever seen.
He then talked about the tension that was built between these legends during the angle and said that he is pretty sure that the company was planting seeds for some kind of match between these two.
Waltman also explained why a match against the Dead Man is better for Shawn as opposed to the much-talked bout against AJ Styles, because the expectations would be too high if he wrestles the WWE Champion.
According to Sean Waltman, the Heartbreak Kid doesn’t want that pressure, and he will be able to tell a better story while wrestling with the Phenom because of the history between them.
