• AJ Styles On Shawn Michaels Rejecting A Match With Him & Then Coming Out Of Retirement

During a recent interview on WWE Now, United States Champion AJ Styles talked about asking two time WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels for a match.

Below is what Styles said:

“I would have loved the opportunity to have gotten in the ring with him. I’m not sure what it is about Shawn and I that people see as like, ‘Oh wow, these guys are one and the same.’

I would like to think that there are so many great matches by Shawn and hopefully there are a lot of great matches that you see me in. And that’s the comparison. That [we’re] able to put on a show no matter who is in the ring with [us]. It’s certainly a compliment.

I asked Shawn [about a match] and he said ‘No.’ That’s on Shawn, guys. I can’t do anything about that. I would love to opportunity to do that [match]. But I get where he’s coming from too.

It’s one of those things where, if you say you’re gonna retire — Now, granted, he had a match after his retirement, one [match] — but I understand not really wanting to do it. When I retire, I want to [stay] retired too.”
