Shawn Michaels took the time to talk Sky Sports Lock Up Podcast during the launch of the new WWE UK Performance Center. During the interview, Michaels said Sky Sports that he does not want to fight anymore.
Since the end of 2016, Shawn Michaels has worked as a talent development coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, but has recently requested a transfer from Triple H to allow him a new expansion in the UK. Michaels's first eight-year match took place in November 2018 when he met a longtime team team, Triple H, to reform the D-Generation X and the Battle of The Brothers of Destruction, Kane and The Undertaker Crown Jewel. Michaels joked about why he came back and then explained how it was time for the developing stars to get their moment in the spotlight.
"They forced me," Michaels said, laughing. "No, it was really a strange thing and I'll tell you, I really felt it was for a moment I'm fine with what I've done .. The guys here in the UK are their time to enjoy it and as much as possible you will use it. "
Michaels would go on to say he does not want to fight anymore, and he thinks that artists lead him WrestleMania the moment is more satisfying than his own. Michaels admitted, though he played the role of a tough guy during his career, he started a simple, just child with a dream and admiration for Ric Flair.
"I no longer want to do it, the only thing to have my own Wrestlemanian moment is to watch and help someone with theirs," Michaels explained. "We had time, we enjoyed it thoroughly, and we know the potential of so many of these men and women, we know the joy they can have, and we want to hand them over." You can have all the bells and whistles but you have to have something emotional, "added Michaels." I let young athletes know that I do not think for one second, I was not scared, I was not intimidated, I was Mr. Tough. I was the boy who had a dream sitting in the box and thinking "to Ric Flair and others. We want them to know that all these things are all right, letting all the guards down and doing all we can."
