Last week, it was reported that Shawn Michaels would be making an appearance on Raw in the coming weeks. There wasn’t much clarity as to the reason for his sudden return to the program. According to Wrestle Zone, the answer has now been provided.
As seen on Raw tonight, WWE officially announced Shawn Michaels will be appearing on next week’s Raw from New Orleans. WWE also teased “rumors” of The Undertaker appearing, which all but confirms The Dead Man will be returning. In the graphic shown for HBK tonight, the cover of his upcoming WWE Studios movie “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” was included. The movie will be released on January 20th, so HBK’s Raw appearance will in some part be to promote the film.
Since retiring from in-ring competition, Michaels has picked up work in several different other areas. This is just his latest venture on the big screen in his first starring role. The release of the film lines up perfectly with his return.
Along with Michaels, The Undertaker is set to make an appearance on Raw next week. There isn’t much clarity as to why he will be on the program. It’s likely to get an opponent lined up for the Royal Rumble or entering the Royal Rumble match.
