As has been noted, WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels will be returning to the ring for the first time since his retirement back in 2010 at WrestleMania XXVI.
Even though WWE has yet to announce it, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ will be back in the squared circle at WWE’s Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on Friday, November 2nd to team up with Triple H against The Undertaker and Kane. Of course, Michaels will be in Triple H’s corner next Saturday in Melbourne, Australia when WWE heads down under for Super Show-Down, which is believed to be the launching point for the angle to bring Shawn back to the ring.
While many never believed ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ would ever come back for one more match, Shawn had stated in the past that it could only happen under a tag team type of circumstance due to his age. However, that may not entirely be the case.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account (who has broken stories in the past), Michaels will not only be wrestling at Crown Jewel, but a singles match is in the works for down the road against ‘The Deadman’ with the likelihood of it taking place at Survivor Series:
Hearing that Shawn Michaels will indeed wrestle more than just the upcoming Saudi Tag bout. A one on one match vs. The Undertaker is planned. While some want it at Chase Field for the Rumble, I’m told the discussion is centered around Survivor Series in LA.

EA’s Take: I’ve long been in the camp of not wanting Shawn to come back for another match, but at this point it doesn’t matter because it’s happening regardless. If this turns out to be true and we are getting another HBK/Undertaker match, it makes the most sense for it to happen somewhere close to Crown Jewel. I wouldn’t hold it off until Royal Rumble or WrestleMania. Shawn’s been pretty vocal about the preparation for a match being a big part of why he wouldn’t return originally, so I think Survivor Series is perfect as it’s only a few weeks after Crown Jewel. I can’t imagine he wants to workout to prep for a match, sit around for a while and then have to try and ramp himself back up again. This way, he’d at least already still be in the right mindset where Crown Jewel and Survivor Series are so close together.
