• Shawn Michaels Open To Coming Out Of Retirement – Reveals The Conditions Under Which He Would Return
During a recent interview with Sky Sports UK, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was asked about a possible return to the ring.
HBK had the following to say about coming out of retirement:
“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 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 (Triple H) and I can just do a few crotch chops and have some fun.”
HBK’s last match was in 2010, in the main event of WrestleMania 26. He was forced to retire from in-ring competition when he lost a “Streak vs. Career” match to The Undertaker.
