WWE icon The Undertaker handed out a huge compliment during a recent Q&A when he claimed one specific star on the current roster is the Shawn Michaels of this era.

While many wrestling fans feel men like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin are the greatest of all time, many within the industry often mention Shawn Michaels as their pick for WWE GOAT. The man known as “HBK” was a generational talent who had the rare ability to put on high-level matches with whoever he performed with.

Furthermore, he seemed to excel under the brightest spotlights and is nicknamed “Mr. WrestleMania” for the many legendary matches he had at the yearly event. One performer he had many memorable encounters with at ‘Mania is The Undertaker.

The duo not only had classic matches at WrestleMania but also battled for years and built legendary resumes off of their many bouts against each other. That is why there is no better person than “The Deadman” to give his thoughts on who is the Shawn Michaels of today’s WWE roster since he and Michaels worked together for the better part of 20 years.

The Undertaker was asked that question during a recent Q&A on his “Six Feet Under” Patreon page. His choice made sense, especially since he also had a legendary match against him at WrestleMania.

“While I don’t know if there will ever be another Shawn Michaels, AJ Styles possesses the ability to work seamlessly with anyone. Despite not being physically imposing, AJ can elevate any opponent and deliver a convincing, top-notch performance. That’s kind of the reason why the whole Boneyard match happened, because I didn’t get a chance to work with AJ and that lured me. I really do [hold him in such high regard] as a human being and as a performer.”

AJ Styles vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 36 is universally seen as the best match during the pandemic era show and it took cinematic matches in WWE to new heights. But Styles has a fantastic run in the company in general and is a multi-time world champion who has been one of their top stars for the last decade.
