Shawn Michaels is certainly one of the best in-ring performers to have ever graced a WWE ring. Michaels was touted as Mr. WrestleMania, and he truly lived up to the name. Michaels retired well over a decade ago and even had a match after that. In fact, fans believed he will be wrestling one more match. However, Michaels doesn’t think he will ever wrestle again.

Michaels has always exceeded expectations when it comes to performing in a match. Many say that he was so good inside the ring, that HBK could even have a believable match with a broomstick. There have been attempts to get HBK in the ring again, even with Kevin Owens pitching match, but he hasn’t made that return to the squared circle.

Michaels retired in 2010 following a classic Career vs. Streak match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 26. He then teamed up with Triple H and faced off against The Undertaker and Kane at WWE Crown Jewel 2018, which was criticized in a huge way.

While speaking on Culture State, Shawn Michaels was asked if he might do one more match himself. Michaels made it clear that he will never wrestle inside the squared circle again.


“Yeah, I’ve had that final match. No, father time waits on no man. I’m good, I’m unbelievably happy with my career, and it is now time to watch the next generation flourish.”

Since Triple H took over creative duties of WWE, Shawn Michaels has been put in charge of NXT, and he has done a good job bringing out the young roster’s talent with a couple of welcome changes. Michaels is happily enjoying his current role in WWE, and that’s what matters.
