WWE legend The Undertaker has said Shawn Michaels is wrestling's Greatest of All Time despite previously hating him at one point.
Undertaker snubbed himself and a string of other wrestling stars who would otherwise be regarded as the best of the best to hail Michaels as the greatest.
The Dead Man as the retired wrestler was fondly known to his fans made the revelation while discussing his favourite match.
The WWE icon cited his fight with Michaels during Wrestlemania 25 as the best he ever had in the ring.
The Undertaker told ITN Wrestling as cited by SunSport.
“When pressed for one particular match, it would have to be Wrestlemania 25 against Shawn Michaels. The match quality, the storyline, this is one of the greatest matches that I was part of.
“I think Shawn Michaels probably is the greatest in-ring wrestler of all time."
Despite the existence of bad blood between them in the formative years of their WWE careers, The Undertaker and Michaels are understood to be close pals.
The pair produced a number of classic in-ring performances during the Attitude Era last Millennium punctuated with unending feuds.
The squabbles are said to have extended to backstages where the duo never saw eye-to-eye.
The Undertaker has since called time on his illustrious wrestling career, with his last fight happening in 2020 after he beat AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36.
He went on to sign off at Survivor Series in what was dubbed his "Final Farewell" bringing his 30-year wrestling journey to a halt.
