Shawn Michaels on Rumors of Match Against AJ Styles

0

While speaking to the Daily Mirror UK, Shawn Michaels was asked about the once rumored match-up between himself and AJ Styles.

“There was talk about it possibly happening at WrestleMania. I think he’s an unbelievably talented young man. I wish I was 10 to 15 years younger because there are so many great guys. But it’s very important to me, I wouldn’t have retired unless I was ready to walk away. I’m flattered that every year when WrestleMania comes up people talk about me coming back, but I enjoy my time with my family, I enjoy watching WrestleMania and I also enjoy watching WWE move into the future.”

Michaels also discussed the importance of staying retired and mentioned that it’s the current WWE Superstar’s time to shine.

“It’s very important that continues to happen and the only way for it to do so is for some of us in a dignified way to walk away. Much as it would be interesting to be in there with some of those young men, it’s their time now and I think it’s important that we focus on them and the future of the WWE.”

Before Samoa Joe suffered his foot injury, there were plans in place for him to do an angle with John Cena at the upcoming Royal Rumble event. With Joe unable to appear on the show, it appears that the spot will now be given to Elias instead and he will do whatever spot that Joe was originally supposed to do with Cena at the pay-per-view event.

As previously reported, Joe’s return has been pushed back and he’s not expected back until the end of March. With Cena rumored to be facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania this year, it’s possible the plans that WWE had for Joe and Cena will be completely scrapped.

Possible Reasons Why WWE Changed the Finals of the US Title Tournament

0

As seen on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, the finals of the United States Title Tournament was pushed up and  took place on this week’s show instead of the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.

Dave Meltzer indicated in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it was probably moved up because of time constraints at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Two Rumble matches are taking place on the card and those two matches combined will be 2 of the 4 hours on the show.

Meltzer also believes that there could have been a change of plans because of an injury situation and caused the company to deviate from what they originally had in mind. Meltzer didn’t elaborate on what injury could have caused a change in plans but it’s worth pointing out that there have been an abnormal amount of injuries as of late and it could have been any of those.
