WWE legend Shawn Michaels has admitted he regrets coming out of retirement at Crown Jewel in 2018.
The Heartbreak Kid hung up his tights and boots in 2010 after losing a streak versus career match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 26.
But the 55-year-old stepped back in the squared circle eight years later to team with Triple H against The Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel.
Although the match was widely panned, Michaels claimed the real reason he regretted it was because of The Undertaker's intentions.
In the Last Ride documentary, the Deadman revealed that he would have retired from wrestling himself had he been satisfied with the contest.

HBK has now admitted that his decision to commit to appearing at Crown Jewel might have been different had he been privy to that information.
When asked if he regretted coming out of his retirement, he told the New York Post: “I do.
"I had no idea that from Mark’s standpoint he was looking at it as that might be one he could walk away on.
“That’s something that I think to myself now, ‘oh my goodness I wish that I’d have known that.'
“For me it was [fun]. It was just a chance to be with my buddies.”
Michaels went on to claim that he has since been able to break off the match from the rest of his career, saying it “lives in a separate world to me.”
He added: “All I can do is apologize to the guys.”
HBK has yet to lace up his boots since retiring for a second time while 'Taker's last WWE match came at WrestleMania 36 in April 2020.
