Shawn Michaels Discusses Potential Return Match

Published

on

A lot of talk has swirled over the past several months about a potential comeback match, likely a one off, involving WWE Hall of Fame Shawn Michaels, who is widely considered to be the greatest in ring performer of All-time, and has been sticking to his retirement.

However, the 53-year old Michaels cannot seem to avoid the constant questions regarding one more match, and even threw fuel on the fire earlier this year by commenting on a potential match, strongly hinting that he would be more open to it than he had been since his last match at WrestleMania 26.

Michaels is again discussing the potential of a match.

“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,” Michaels said, during a recent interview with “Inside the Ropes”.

“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.”

Interestingly, Michaels discussed getting in the ring with superstars closer to his age, something that he seemed to think would work much better.

“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” Michaels said. ”

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.”

Nyla Rose

All Elite Wrestling has already impressed with their ‘Double or Nothing’ event last month in Las Vegas, and their roster of professional wrestlers continue to make headlines with their matches, and the work they do on social media as well.

One AEW wrestler who is receiving the spotlight is Nyla Rose, the promotion’s first transgender wrestler, who is discussing her journey to AEW and her future.

“As much negativity that I do see, I do see much more love and acceptance,” Rose said, during an interview with Sports Illustrated. “It’s just that sadly negative things seem to get highlighted more than positive things.”

She continued, “”If I can bear the weight, if I can hold up all the hatred and everything and carry that on my back, I know that I’m strong enough to do it, If the people out there need to beat me up and I need to absorb that so that the next generation, the youth, can have an easier time, I gladly welcome that.”

“I’m really hoping to set the tone and set the pace and create that environment that’s going to fuel the next generation” Rose commented “Not just trans people, but inspire anybody to say, ‘Hey, these women lit that on fire. I want to be that. I want to do that.’”

“AEW has felt that I am worthy of a chance. All I can ask is that some of the people out there, the fans who might be a little bit tight-minded, just give me a chance to show you what I can do in the ring. That’s all.”

NXT’s Adam Cole Discusses Creative Freedom

NXT Champion Adam Cole is at the height of his success with the promotion, recently defeating Johnny Gargano in another instant classic to capture his first NXT Championship, and he is talking about how things go down in NXT.

Unlike much of the main roster, where promos are often scripted and comedy-acts are more common, Cole says that superstars in NXT get a bit more creative freedom, as he had with Gargano for their match.

“One of the coolest things about NXT is we have a ton of creative liberties to come up with the story and the vision we have for the match” Cole said, during an interview with TalkSport. “Of course, there’s input and advice given and there’s suggestions or, you know ‘we need something this way’ (but) we do have a lot of freedom, which is great.”

Cole added that he and Gargano came up with the format for their two out of three falls classic at NXT Takeover: New York.
