WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels discussed the potential of him making a WWE in-ring return in a recent interview with Inside The Ropes to promote the WWE NXT UK brand. Here is what he had to say:
“I always try to explain it to people, if you take me as a younger version and put me in with those guys, of course it would be a blast, but at the same time I’d like to be the younger version of me and be in the ring with a Harley Race or a Buddy Rogers. But none of those things can really happen in real life.
To put me in a singles match at WrestleMania, I was always thrilled to do it but it’s a very strenuous, it’s a very anxious, there’s a lot that goes into it, the anxiety. Once you get in there, and especially when it’s done, it’s phenomenal but the getting ready for it is 100-percent work and I don’t know that I want to put myself or my family through that, to go out there and try to steal the show at 53 for God’s sake.
It’s a whole different ball of wax if somebody says do you and Triple H want to go down and work with some other 40-plus year old guys or 50 and mess around and be silly’. That doesn’t seem like work to me. So it’s stuff like that, that I would consider. Nobody ever talks about that. It’s always me and somebody half my age.”
Whether the ‘Heart Break Kid’ makes a return that remains to be seen but if he indeed does then the WWE management should act wisely for paving the way of his induction.
