The Showstopper, Mr. WrestleMania, The HeartBreak Kid Shawn Michaels has been popularly known as Coach Michaels at the WWE Performance Center for quite some time now for his job with NXT as a television producer and being back to the business once again.
In an earlier interview, Michaels had hinted at a possible WWE in-ring return after 8 years in retirement. The Showstopper also mentioned AJ Styles and Johnny Gargano topping his list of who he would like to wrestle on his return.
However, at the WWE For Your Consideration event last week, The HeartBreak Kid had a different answer altogether.
“I don’t know I say all sorts of silly stuff I have absolutely no idea why I say the things I do,” Michaels said when he was asked during the WWE For Your Consideration event exactly what he meant when he picked guys like Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, and Johnny Gargano as Superstars he would like to face.
“Those are unbelievably talented young men” HBK continued. “I don’t know, I’m fans of theirs, I appreciate their style, and I don’t know I guess for so many years I was always fortunate to be able to bring the best out of other people and I see those guys doing that with other talent and I guess if you have the ability to put two people with the ability to do that together and something very special could come out of it.”
“As much as it would be enjoyable to do that I’m more excited about watching these guys take WWE into the future,” Mr. WrestleMania said while referencing a possible in-ring return.
It appears that Michaels may be out of the in-ring return bubble for now, but never say never in pro-wrestling and that seems to be the case for HBK. It will be interesting to see if Mr. WrestleMania has a change of mind in the near future and finally makes his long-awaited in-ring return in WWE.
