Legendary WWE superstar The Undertaker congratulated Shawn Michaels for completing over 35 years in WWE on his debut anniversary.

Michaels, 57, has spent over three decades in the ring while collecting multiple accolades. He is a four-time world champion and was enlisted into the Hall of Fame twice.

The Undertaker took to his Twitter to pay tribute to The Headliner on his 35th debut anniversary.

“Throughout my career, if I had to pick one person to share the ring with, without hesitation it would be @ShawnMichaels! He is one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of wrestling boots! Congrats on 35 years with @WWE, you have earned all the accolades bestowed upon you," Undertaker wrote.

The Deadman and Mr WrestleMania faced each other a number of times in the ring and formed one of WWE’s most fierce rivalries. Their encounter at WrestleMania 25 in 2009 — which The Undertaker won, is widely regarded as one of the best wrestling bouts ever.

The Grim Reaper also mentioned Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns as the current WWE star he would like to face. In the main event of WrestleMania 36, The Undertaker performed in his farewell match against AJ Styles in a Boneyard encounter.

"I would love to be healthy enough to have a match now with Roman Reigns. When we worked at [WrestleMania 33], I was on my last legs. And he wasn't nearly the performer that he is now," Taker said while speaking to The Independent.

"And then another guy that I would love to have worked with would be Seth Rollins. He's just an incredible in-ring talent. And now he's got this really flamboyant character, which would have been a really interesting contrast between the doom and gloom of The Undertaker and his over-the-top character,” he added.
