I listened to Shawn Michaels on Kiss Rocks out of San Antonio on Friday. He talked about WrestleMania and admitted thinking that Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak being broken at “Mr.WrestleMania” would be cool.
The big news he gave was that he has already given the office the date he is going to be walking away. Shawn never said the word retiring but that is what it was suggesting.
HBK said he came back to WWE with the intention o working one match. “That was about six years ago,” he laughed. He specifically mentioned that Undertaker’s streak vs. Mr. WrestleMania has to happen sooner or later, so it sounds like that match will take place at WrestleMania 25.
He said he’s been approached about acting. He also noted that his kids doing fine, Rebecca starting up her own business, and he has plans for what he will do after WWE. He said he will be with the WWE in some form always and suggested that he would still do PR work. I found it more telling of how different he is from his hero Ric Flair was this year in the sense of peace of walking away.
