Could AJ Styles ever face off against Shawn Michaels?
It would be a dream match between two of the greatest athletes in modern wrestling history. But for Shawn Michaels, it's about fifteen years too late. He thinks Styles is immensely talented, but when he retired in his match against the Undertaker back in 2010, he meant it. He spoke about the possibility in an interview with The Mirror:
"There was talk about it possibly happening at WrestleMania," he said. "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" he added. "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."
Despite constant rumors about a return, Shawn Michaels hasn't wrestled a match since he lost to the Undertaker in a retirement match at WrestleMania 26 in 2010.
