A Heartbreaking Denial
Since his retirement from the ring in 2010 there have been a number of rumors about WWE wanting a legend to return to the ring. Following his departure from the company cracks started to form in the depth of the roster and the WWE actually started to move toward promoting younger talent. The Streak match has become a major part of the biggest event of the year and normally attracts fans to it just based on who The Undertaker was facing and his matches at WrestleMania 25 & 26 are two of the reasons why it is. For two consecutive years Shawn Michaels attempted to break the streak and two of the greatest WrestleMania matches in history.
At WrestleMania 26, Michaels lost a retirement match against Undertaker and officially put an end to his legendary career. Over the last couple of years WWE management has tried to lure the "Heartbreak Kid" back to the ring but every time they tried he would always say no and that he wants to remain retire. However, last year heavy rumors began to pop up that Michaels could be returning for a huge dream match at Royal Rumble 2017 against AJ Styles.
Even though this dream match would end up just as the other matches as Michaels would reject the offer to return. The only difference between this offer and every other Shawn had received prior is that this one came from Vince himself. For the first time Vince actually asked Shawn to come back for a match against AJ and if Vince asked you know it was something he wanted to have happen at the Rumble. But I do think it is fair to say that Shawn is happy in retirement and will not be making a coming back again.
