Shawn Michaels hasn’t wrestled since The Undertaker beat him at WrestleMania, but since he’s back at the WWE PC, there will always be people wanting to see him return.
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, HBK said he would be apt to face someone in their 40’s or older who just wanted to have a good time. But preparing for a WrestleMania match is a lot of work he doesn’t want to do. He also had some issues with the fact that he’ll still be 53 years old when all is said and done and there’s nothing changing that.
“Let’s just say I did it and the match is phenomenal. The reality is this hairline is still what it is — like it’s all hot and sweaty — and even if the match is phenomenal and everything else, you’re still gonna bust my chops because I’ve got no way not to expose to you that I’m 53.”
“That’s the thing — and I don’t mean it in a bad way — but you want me to kip up and everything look as if it was 1996, ’97. That’s not gonna happen because father time waits for no man.”
“There’s a lot of stuff like what do you do and even does the young guy benefit when all is said and done. I don’t know, it just seems like more trouble than it’s worth.”
Hopefully, HBK will change his mind. After all, Triple H did finally get him to come into the WWE Performance Center after a lot of begging.
