The Undertaker made a roaring appearance on NXT this week. The WWE Hall of Famer made his entry on his signature chopper bike while wearing a bandana and leather jacket. Bron Breakker declared himself the baddest person in WWE and The Phenom wasn’t going to let that comment slide. The 58-year-old star taught him a lesson proving why he is the baddest of all. But as the dust settled, and the show came to an end, Taker thought he would meet his old friend Shawn Michaels, aka The Heart Break Kid. The candid meeting turned into a trolling session, as Michaels couldn’t help but pull a jab at him.

HBK pulls The Undertaker’s leg

In a backstage clip posted by the official WWE NXT Instagram account, fans could see Michaels and Taker meeting each other after a long time. His old friend interrupted Michaels who was busy doing some paperwork, as he knocked on the door. They both hugged as they were meeting after such a long time. This was followed by The Prince of Darkness sarcastically asking him whether HBK saw his last match. To this, the senior vice president of NXT gave a stern “no”. This might be an inside joke between the stars but it sure looked like Michaels ultimately got the upper hand.

HBK’s retirement match was against The Undertaker. At WrestleMania 26, Michaels went off against The Undertaker in a career vs streak bout. The 58-year-old star lost the fight and underwent retirement after that. After a while, he then took charge of affairs pertaining to the NXT brand. He is one of the backstage producers of the show. Along with that, he is also WWE’s Vice President of Talent Development Creative.
