The deal was so huge that it was able to bring back Shawn Michaels out of his retirement. He teamed up with Triple H to take on against The Undertaker and Kane. D-generation X was up against the Brothers of Destruction after almost two decades producing a dream tag team match. This was one of the reasons that the audience glued their eyes to this particular show.
There’s no doubt that the audience had goosebumps to see Shawn Michaels back inside the ring. We could barely imagine that Undertaker and HBK would share the ring, ever again. But it became reality on last night at Crown Jewel. Michaels also hit some of his pendant moves like old times including the Sweet Chin Music. In the end, DX became the winner to close the show.
Once Crown Jewel was over, Shawn Michaels talked with WWE.com to confirm that he will stay within retirement in future. He is happy to go back into his regular role of being a trainer at the WWE performance center. He will try to avoid in-ring competition as much as possible for months to come.
