In a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Heartbreak Kid let it be known that he isn’t against the idea of another match in the WWE.
Since he retired back in 2010, Shawn Michaels has been adamant about staying retired, believing that his best years are behind him. During the Table for Three involving himself, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles back in 2017, he even addressed the dream match that fans have wanted involving him and Styles.
At the table, Michaels more or less said that he isn’t as good as he was back then, and it wouldn’t be as special. There’s also the problem of deciding the victor. Michaels believes it’s a question that’s more difficult to answer than some people might believe. His main reason up to this point, though, was that it’s always best to, “leave before they want you too.”
It’s been a year since that episode, and it looks like HBK might be tempted for a return now. The Showstopper even mentioned Styles’ name yet again while talking to Sky Sports.
I’ve been retired for eight years now, and when it got to the five-year mark I thought people would start asking me, but they just kind of stopped. I think it’s one of those that you would never say never about, and if it was just for a one-off then it’s something that I would take a look at.
It would have to be done the right way, and just for one match rather than something that ran for longer. It could be possible, but people would have to accept they wouldn’t be getting the Showstopper, Mr. WrestleMania, and that I’m 52 years old now.
If it was with the Shawn Michaels of 10 years ago I would love to have gotten in the ring with so many of the guys that are competing today. AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan would be good, and then there’s the guys in NXT, too. Someone like a Johnny Gargano would be fantastic. But for a one-off match now, I’d need it to be a tag-team match where Hunter and I can just do a few crotch chops and have some fun.
With Shawn Michaels saying that there’s a possibility for one final match, who would you like to see him face off against?
