Shawn Michaels is officially out of retirement - WWE have confirmed amazing first match

Prior to last night on Monday Night Raw, the WWE did some curious promotional work.

The company tweeted out Shawn Michaels and Triple H would be responding to The Brothers of Destruction's brutal assault at the climax of Super Show-Down and Trish Stratus would be on Raw.

Was this 2001 or 2018? Either way, it made for some great television.

Triple H finally defeated the Undertaker after years of trying in one-on-one competition - which included three failed attempts at WrestleManias - in the main event of Super Show-Down.

While all four men raised each other's hands and celebrated in the ring with a real feel-good moment, the Brothers of Destruction would have a change of heart and decimate DX.

Triple H and Shawn Michaels would open up RAW this week and The Game talked about how the respect they once had with the Brothers was now gone.

Furthermore, Shawn Michaels made a stunning announcement, which led to Triple H issuing a challenge.

There is no doubt that these four men are legendary storytellers and can make a tag-team match work in Saudi Arabia.

The question is, out of all the offers Michaels must have had to return to the Squared Circle, why now? Like The Undertaker, he is 53-years-old and has chosen to face guys his age rather than making any possible dream matches on the table.

Is it wise? Probably not. Will it be entertaining? Probably so!

The tag match is set for November 2 in Saudi Arabia and one has to imagine that the money that has been put on offer was just too good for HBK to turn down.

Previously, Michaels has said the only way to stop people asking him to come back, is to actually make a return.

There have been a couple of ideas that have been interesting and I've entertained them for a very short time," he said.

"I'd hate to say this and make it the start of rumours or speculation but I'm so unbelievably flattered that all these years later they keep offering and asking.

"One of these days it might be tough to turn down! Put it this way, I thought that after five years they'd stop asking or never be interested."
