During a recent appearance on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels revealed that he was offered a huge return match offer at WrestleMania 33 which he turned down.
HBK revealed that he was offered a match with former WWE Champion “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles at WrestleMania 33, but he decided to stay retired. Below is what he said:
“I guess I’m breaking something with you and I don’t even know if I should, but I could have had that match. They didn’t have an opponent for AJ at WrestleMania. I said that I hadn’t been asked because I hadn’t—but then I was. I said, I wish that young man was here 10 years ago, man. I honestly do. I think he’s very talented.”
Shawn Michaels retired from in-ring competition in 2010 when he lost a “Streak vs. Career” match to The Undertaker in the main event of WrestleMania 26.
