• WWF Legend On Talks Of Him Facing AJ Styles At WrestleMania Last Year
During a recent interview with The Mirror, Old School WWF Legend Shawn Michaels talked about Raw 25, talks of him facing AJ Styles at WrestleMania last year & more. Below are the highlights:
On talks of him facing AJ Styles at last year’s WrestleMania:
“There was talk about it possibly happening at WrestleMania. I think he’s an 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.
It’s very important that continues to happen and the only way for it to do so is for some of us in a dignified way to walk away. Much as it would be interesting to be in there with some of those young men, it’s their time now and I think it’s important that we focus on them and the future of the WWE.”
On appearing at Raw 25 as a member of DX:
“It will be a blast. It’s one of those things from a comfort standpoint and thinking about all the unbelievable, crazy things we did down the years on Monday Night Raw… it will be something that is in my wheelhouse and a lot of fun to do. The reuniting of DX will be a blast.
It’s going to be simulcast, which I don’t think has been done for quite a long time, from the Barclays Center and the Manhattan Center. I think there will be a lot of exciting things going on that night. And I say that because I have found out absolutely nothing!
People keep asking me, which one am I going to be at, and I don’t know yet. I think they might keep all of us in the dark, until right before show time, so it’s exciting for everybody.”
