Shawn Michaels asked to return for WrestleMania 32?

This year's WrestleMania will go down in the history books as one of the best of all time and that included a return of former World Champion Shawn Michaels.

Mr WrestleMania didn't fully return to action, but he did make a cameo appearance in the Triple H vs Sting match when he hit The Icon with a stunning Sweet Chin Music.

This sparked many rumours that The Showstopper could be set to make a return for the first time since the Daniel Bryan saga of 2013, when Shawn hit Daniel with a Sweet Chin Music inside Hell in a Cell. The storyline was that Michaels had trained Bryan and was also Triple H's best friend, so it put him in an awkward situaton as the two were fueding at the time. 

In an interview with former WWE commentator Jim Ross on "The Ross Report", Michaels was asked if he has been approached about a WWE ring return for next year's WrestleMania in his hometown of Texas. 

The San Antonio native replied: “I’ve already had an offer. I’ve enjoyed being retired.”

Not only that, but WWE have also asked the former superstar to return and be a part of the creative team alongside his old friend and tag partner Triple H:

“It wouldn’t be a great fit for me,” Michaels admitted. “There’d be a lot of stifling going on. I’ve been able to sway them on things other people couldn’t. I’d be open to the Pat Patterson gig, where you have a couple of projects and you could write in from home about it. If you’re going to be there every week, you might as well go back and be an on-air character and make more money.”

It is unknown what the plan for Michaels would be next year if he does decide to come back for "one more match." One thing is for sure though, in his home town, Michaels would be recieved as he always was during his illustrious career.

WWE are aware that they need to somehow top what was one of the best WrestleMania's this year, and this latest news is a sign that they are pulling out all the stops for next year's extravaganza. 

Rumours about a Michaels return have plagued the wrestling chat rooms for years, with many fans thinking Mr Monday Night still had a few more matches left in him, but it seems that following his induction into the Hall of Fame class of 2011, Shawn Michaels is happy to be at home with his family, enjoying wrestling from afar.
