During his interview with ESPN, the 14-time World Champion revealed that he was originally scheduled to wrestle at WrestleMania 38, but then his heart issue came to light and the plans got canceled.
Below is what the 2019 WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“I was already at a place in my career, as far as the in-ring goes, where I was comfortable being done and finished.
If the right thing came along, I hadn’t really said much, but if the right thing came along and they wanted me to do it…I had a conversation with Vince McMahon about doing something at WrestleMania this year in Dallas. We had talked and there were plans for.
Obviously, when this happened, it shut all that down.
As far as the schedule, WWE is an intense place, it’s 24/7 and you’re running, running, running. It put things in perspective for me.”
