Although The Undertaker was not in Detroit for Monday’s episode of Raw, he did play a part in Reigns’ match against Jinder Mahal. The Undertaker’s signature gong went off in the middle of the match, distracting Reigns for a moment and allowing Mahal to launch an attack.
Reigns recovered, though, and after winning the match, he dared The Undertaker to come to the ring. Taker didn’t walk through the curtain – but another WrestleMania legend’s music hit in his place.
Shawn Michaels, who had two epic WrestleMania matches against The Undertaker in 2009 and 2010 and lost a Streak vs. Retirement match at WrestleMania XXVI, made a surprise appearance to warn Reigns about his focus just 20 days away from WrestleMania 33.
Reigns brushed off Michaels, though, and boasted that he’s going to “retire” The Undertaker at WrestleMania, just like The Undertaker retired Michaels.
After leaving the ring, though, Reigns was taken out by an irate Braun Strowman to the delight of the Detroit crowd.
