”The Heart Break Kid” Shawn Michaels recently gave an interview to ESPN to promote his upcoming flick, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. During the interview, he gave his thoughts on the topic of WWE Champion ”The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles wanting a dream match with him.
Styles has spoken on numerous occasions about ‘’H-B-Shizzle’’ being one of his all-time favorites and his intention to compete in the squared circle with him.
Last year in October, ‘’The Phenomenal One’’ had also tweeted out a fan-made poster which featured him and Shawn Michaels squaring off at the 2017 Royal Rumble:-

Asked about his reaction to the tweet, ”The WWE Hall of Famer” said that the reigning WWE Champion is not only a talented chap but also knows their work goes beyond that as well.
This is what Shawn Michaels had to say:
“My reaction was that he’s a bright young man. I think he’s not only gifted in the ring, but he understands that the work doesn’t stop there. It’s about creating talk and constantly being the topic of conversation. He understands that.”
Michaels also tried to explain why the match between him and A.J. Styles is not possible by pitting an example of Michael Jordan and LeBron James, two NBA stars from different eras, were unable to play against each other despite wanting to do so.
‘Mr WrestleMania’ was quoted as saying this:
“I have no doubt that LeBron James would’ve loved to have played against Michael Jordan, but that simply is not going to happen. But I’ve got to tell you that I appreciate the free press. I’m a guy that has absolutely no problem flying under the radar and not being talked about. My name has been out there for the last three months thanks to him doing that.”
