Shawn Michaels put his career on the line when he challenged The Undertaker at WrestleMania 26, and after The Deadman put him down for the three count, he officially retired from in-ring competition.
Michaels is 52 years old now, and even though he’s had offers to return to the ring, he’s remained adamant over the years that he wants to stay retired.
However, during a recent interview with Sky Sports, the WWE Hall of Famer said that he would consider wrestling one more match.
“I’ve been retired for eight years now and when it got to the five-year mark I thought people would start asking me but they just kind of stopped. I think it’s one of those that you would never say never about and if it was just for a one-off then it’s something that I would take a look at.”
However, Michaels went on to say that fans would have to understand that due to his age, they wouldn’t be getting the Showstopper that they were once used to seeing inside the squared circle.
He also noted that if he does return for one more match, it would likely be for a tag team match with Triple H.
“If it was the Shawn Michaels of 10 years ago I would love to have gotten in the ring with so many of the guys that are competing today. AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan would be good, and then there’s the guys in NXT too. Someone like a Johnny Gargano would be fantastic. But for a one-off match now, I’d need it to be a tag-team match where Hunter (Triple H) and I can just do a few crotch chops and have some fun.”
