Shawn Michaels Coming Out of Retirement for WWE Crown Jewel

Posted By James Walsh on 10/08/18

It is official: Shawn Michaels will come out of retirement to team up with Triple H against Kane and Undertaker at WWE Crown Jewel. Michaels announced the news during the opening segment of Raw, making his return to the ring official after it had been rumored for weeks. Michaels said during the segment that he had stayed retired out of respect for the Undertaker, but that after the Brothers of Destruction attacked him at Super Show-Down, he came to realize that “respect didn’t exist.”

The return will mark Michaels’ first match since he lost his retirement match to Undertaker at WrestleMania 26. Michaels has always maintained that he is happy in retirement, but has been more open in recent months to the idea of a return in some capacity.

WWE Crown Jewel takes place on November 2nd from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and will air live on WWE Network.
