Jim Ross recently did a Q&A on his website JRSBARBQ.com. During the Q&A, he was asked about rumors that Shawn Michaels may be returning to the ring. Here is what he had to say…
“It’s the annual ‘HBK to return for one more match’ rumor that generally pops up concerning WrestleMania. I don’t feel that there is any thing to it. Shawn has been adamant that he’s done as a wrestler and I believe him. He’s got nothing left to prove and is staying busy with his Outdoor Network show among other projects.”
As we reported earlier this morning here on the website, there are rumors circulating the ‘net that his special referee appearence at Hell in a Cell will lead to an in ring return.
This is absolutely not the case and there are no plans for Shawn Michaels to return to the ring. He’s said numerous times that he’s not returning for another match and nothing has changed on that front. He’s retired from in-ring competition – plain and simple.
