It appears that WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is on the verge of a comeback at WWE Crown Jewel, and that the seeds for his return match will be planted at this Saturday’s SuperShow event from Australia.
With all the talk of Michaels’ return, he recently revealed that WWE presented him with an exciting idea for a return match against The Undertaker 4 years after Michaels retired following his WrestleMania 26 loss to the Undertaker in a match where HBK’s career was on the line.
Michaels commented on WWE’s offer during a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, which you can see in the video below:

NJPW Talent Considering Departure, Upset with New Management
It appears that the new management heading up NJPW, led by Harold Meij, is rubbing talent the wrong way, upsetting their wrestlers so much so that they are considering a departure from the promotion, eyeing WWE as the next destination.
According to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Meij is also receiving backlash.
“The initial reaction was that the feeling was that he talks down to the wrestlers, he then continued to say many of the wrestlers are concerned he has no history in the business as well.
There are people who in the past had never even considered WWE who are thinking about it, and others who were completely committed to staying who are probably still leaning that way, but are considering the WWE option.”
Kaitlyn Discusses Mae Young Classic
Following her recent return to professional wrestling, former WWE Diva’s Champion Kaitlyn is back in WWE for the Mae Young Classic and is hoping that the tournament can give her a boost to the RAW or Smackdown roster.
Kaitlyn took a hiatus from wrestling following her release from WWE in 2014, and she believes that given her WWE experience, she won’t need to go through NXT to get to the main roster.
“Now that I’ve been there and done it, the stakes are higher, the level of competition is higher, so I see myself just going through it, going through the Mae Young Classic, going through NXT, going through the SmackDown roster, going through the Raw roster” Kaitlyn said, during an interview with ESPN. I know I’m capable of it, and I think the Mae Young Classic is just the beginning.”
