Relive: The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25
Wrestlemania 25 (April 5, 2009) from Houston, Texas
That evening, fans witnessed one of the greatest wrestling matches of all-time when The Undertaker faced Shawn Michaels.
According to Marty Elias (the referee for the match) told the guys at “The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast:
“I’m laughing because if you read Shawn’s latest book, the first chapter talks about the WrestleMania match. I laugh because you said it wasn’t the Main Event, that match was actually only supposed to be 15 minutes and they were originally supposed to be third on the card for that show. I remember being told that and us sitting in there. It was me, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, Pat Patterson and Michael Hayes and when Michael Hayes told Shawn and Taker that we were third and we only had 15 minutes, it was something that needed to be changed.”
In 2020, it’s madness to think this match was only supposed to be 30 minutes!
