Shawn Michaels Names Favorite Undertaker Matches, Talks About Their Real-Life Relationship

Ahead of The Undertaker's "Final Farewell" appearance at this Sunday's WWE Survivor Series 2020 pay-per-view, several WWE Superstars have taken time to talk about their own experiences with "The Deadman" throughout their respective careers.

During a recent interview with CBS Sports, WWE Hall of Fame legend "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels touched on his favorite matches against "The Phenom" and elaborated on their interesting real-life relationship.

Featured below are some of the highlights of the new CBS Sports interview with HBK.

On his favorite match with The Undertaker being their famous showdown at WrestleMania 25: "The perfect one is always going to be [WrestleMania] 25 to me. But the first time in Louisville [In Your House 17 was special] getting in there with a guy you’ve never really been in there with and you recognize the uncanny chemistry you have with someone."

On never actually being friends with The Deadman but having an unbelievable chemistry with him regardless: "Look, Mark and I were never friends. We weren’t close, and we didn’t ride together. Usually you have that chemistry with guys who you did do that with where you have at least a little more positive working relationship. Mark and I had just fantastic chemistry without ever really even talking to each other, which is pretty different. My two favorite matches I’ll always enjoy will be the Hell in a Cell and fast forward what feels like 100 years later. To me, that’s probably one of the most perfect things I’ve ever seen or done, and I think there are a lot of people who feel the same way."
