The Undertaker on Wanting to Beat Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 14
"Early on in my career and when Shawn was there, I didn't care for Shawn personally," Taker said.
"I thought he was an arrogant little s–t. That being said, still no one I would rather get in the ring with it and work [with]. That's just how good he is." Shawn became in one of the best professional wrestlers of all time.
He was great both inside and outside the ring. However, he wasn’t always like that and is well known for the Montreal Screwjob incident. Shawn Michaels was scheduled to drop the WWF Title to Stone Cold at WrestleMania 14.
However, The Undertaker wanted to make sure that Shawn actually went through with it. "Shawn, everyone knows the story, is supposed to drop the belt to Steve. Shawn was being Shawn in my opinion and like I didn't know if he was gonna do it," Taker said.
"My intention was to make sure one way or another business was done that night." The Undertaker never told Shawn that he intended to beat him at WrestleMania 14 to make sure the dropped the title. He only revealed this to him after he became Shawn’s friend outside the ring.
"I felt so bad because our relationship had changed so much that he goes, 'Were you really gonna beat me up?' I was like, 'No man that's just all rumor. Taping my hands up and everything, come on.'
He goes, 'I didn't think so. I mean that really didn't sound like you,'" The Undertaker said. "The whole time in my head I'm like, 'I was gonna smash you if you didn't drop that belt to Steve.'
But yeah, he's a completely different person, I love him to death now. But, yeah, that's the story. I was sitting there hands taped ready to do whatever I needed to be done."
