Shawn Michaels on If He’s Been Approached for a WWE Return, His Ideal Opponent

WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels was recently interviewed by ESPN to promote his new movie The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. You can check out some highlights here:

On if he has been approached regarding a WWE return:

“It’s funny because the two guys who really make the decisions, which is Vince [McMahon] and Hunter [Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque], in seven years have never even approached me. I guess I’m semi-amused that people think ‘Vince is saying this’ and whatnot because those are the two people that understand why and respect why I retired and understood it.”

On his ideal opponent for a return match:

“I look at Samoa Joe and I’ve told him a number of times that I see his stuff at NXT and think to myself, ‘Man, I could have a great deal of fun with you.’ He’s a guy I have sort of enjoyed, and one of those sleeper guys that no one talks about.

“We have contrasting styles. I get that everybody wants to see me and AJ or Seth or Dolph [Ziggler]. From my standpoint, I think really telling a great story out there [is most important]. I could do it with a guy like Samoa Joe. His stuff looks really good, and sometimes he just looks like he’s beating the tar out of somebody.”

    Him and Joe would be like him and Vader/mankind. Might not be a bad story telling match to see Shawn get beat around the arena and pull off the win
