Shawn Michaels talks about one more match for WWE

Shawn Michaels is on most of the WWE Universe's list for a fantasy return at some point in the future. 

HBK was one of the most influential wrestlers of his time and inspired a generation that includes Daniel Bryan. 

When HBK retired back in 2010, it seemed that would be the last we saw of the former DX member, but Shawn has returned to WWE on many different occasions since, super-kicking Daniel Bryan inside Hell in a Cell was one of his more memorable returns.

This week the former World Champion spoke to Brian Fritz of Between the Ropes about fans approaching him asking to to return for one more match.

"Oh yeah. All the time. All the time. If they don't believe, they request that I do. There isn't a time that, every once in a while I will receive a text or someone will make the comment of 'hey, we got this'.

"Put it this way: it's always there for me if I want it. There's only been probably, I don't know, maybe one time where where you go that's actually a pretty good idea. But you have to be careful even about saying that, even to acknowledge that is, in fact, a good idea. You have to be quick to follow up with don't get me wrong, I'm not doing it.

"I have to give you props on a good idea." 

He also spoke about that infamous feud with Daniel Bryan back in 2013 and whether or not he was going to face Bryan.

"Yeah, I realize that a lot of people certainly got that. I guess from my perspective it certainly is a good idea but it's one of those ones, I guess from my standpoint, a good idea is one that would really intrigue me.

That's not one of those of those ones where you go 'wow, what are the chances of someone coming up with that?' That's teacher - student, that's been done, and again I'm not knocking it, I'm just saying that is not some kind of new, innovative idea.

"It's just two other guys doing a very rehashed idea but we think they can do it well so it will be fun for us to watch. Certainly at its core it's not a new and fresh idea."

He was also asked about his thought's on this year's WrestleMania ideas.

"Well, I don't even want to go down that road because then, of course, people will run with it. I at least try to do my best to throw my hat in the ring around WrestleMania so people can talk about it and I can get free press. It's irrelevant then.

"Like I said, most people wouldn't find it interesting anyway. My tastes I guess are not like theirs. When you've done a lot of stuff it's sometimes those out of the box, strange ones that really peak your interest. For me, I give it about two minutes thought and then I move on because I'm very happy with what I'm doing and where my life's at right now."

Michaels is currently promoting his new book, "Wrestling for My Life: The Legend, the Reality and the Faith of a WWE Superstar" so it's highly unlikely that he will play any part in WrestleMania this year, but never say never.
