On the recent Sam Roberts podcast, Shawn Michaels revealed that WWE had reached out to him to potentially be involved in a match with AJ Styles during WrestleMania 33. Michaels would turn down the offer.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I guess I’m breaking something with you and I don’t even know if I should, but I could have had that match,” Michaels said. “They didn’t have an opponent for AJ at WrestleMania. I said that I hadn’t been asked because I hadn’t—but then I was.
“I said, I wish that young man was here 10 years ago, man. I honestly do. I think he’s very talented.”
