Jim Ross recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels for the latest edition of The Ross Report podcast. During the interview Shawn Michaels revealed he received an offer from WWE to return to the ring, and he turned it down. Below are some highlights from the show.
Michaels on if WWE will try to get some Texans such as him and Steve Austin for WrestleMania 32 since it’s in Dallas, Texas: “I’ve already had an offer. I’ve enjoyed being retired.”
Michaels on turning down an offer to be a part of the WWE creative team: “It wouldn’t be a great fit for me. There’d be a lot of stifling going on. I’ve been able to sway them on things other people couldn’t. I’d be open to the Pat Patterson gig, where you have a couple of projects and you could write in from home about it. If you’re going to be there every week, you might as well go back and be an on-air character and make more money.”
