There were strong rumors of Shawn Michaels possibly returning to ring for one more match and facing none other than the current WWE Champion AJ Styles at Royal Rumble last year.
During a recent interview with the Daily Mirror, Michaels was asked about this bout and the speculations that it was later moved to WrestleMania.
Answering to it, the former World Champion said that AJ is an unbelievably talented young man and he wishes that he was 10 years younger but also indicated that he won’t be coming out of his retirement:
“There was talk about it possibly happening at WrestleMania. I think he’s an unbelievably talented young man. I wish I was 10 to 15 years younger because there are so many great guys. But it’s very important to me, I wouldn’t have retired unless I was ready to walk away. I’m flattered that every year when WrestleMania comes up people talk about me coming back, but I enjoy my time with my family, I enjoy watching WrestleMania and I also enjoy watching WWE move into the future.”
Apart from this, Shawn Michaels was also asked about wrestlers from the current Raw roster he would have liked to face and he took the name of Braun Strowman and Finn Balor.
