Shawn Michaels Comments on Being Retired and Not Wanting One More Match
United Kingdom newspaper Daily Star held a recent interview with Shawn Michaels and one of the topics discussed involved Michaels’ thoughts on his retirement from wrestling and his reasons against having one more match.
“I am guilty of not really wanting to work for a living.
To put me in a singles match at [WrestleMania] it’s a very strenuous and anxious process, once you get in there it’s phenomenal.
But to get ready for it is 100% work, and I don’t want to put myself or my family through that to go out and try and steal the show at 52 for God’s sakes.”
