Is there anyone that doesn't want a match against Shawn Michaels?

Over the past couple of weeks, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, and Kevin Owens have all said they would love to have a match against Mr WrestleMania if he was to come out of retirement.

HBK hasn't budged out of retirement since, but another star has said they would have loved to have a match against him too. Booker T.

The WWE Hall of Famer said during an episode of Heated Conversations, according to Wrestling Inc: "The fish that got away was Shawn Michaels. That's the only guy I didn't get a chance to get in there with one-on-one and actually perform with...

"I said, 'this guy [has] got a lot of talent.' Marty Jannetty, 'yeah, he's alright. He's a good hand. He's solid. This Michaels, this guy's good.' Then, over the years, he morphed into something that was called 'Mr. WrestleMania'."

He continued: "And I always wanted to get a chance to get out there and perform with Shawn Michaels just to see how good I really was. Well, I just thought, I wouldn't say that [Michaels was the measuring stick]. Do you know what I mean, me being a performer myself?

"I just wanted to see if he was as good or if I was as good as I thought I was because I always thought I was just as good as any guy that ever put on a pair of boots and you've got to think that way. But Shawn Michaels, he was the guy I didn't get to test my craft with. I would've loved to get in the ring with him."

The two have faced each other before, but never one-on-one. Booker T definitely would have been able to hold his own against Michaels. The problem would have been trying to find a way to feud them against one another as when Booker joined the WWE through the invasion angle, HBK was either not with the company or having one of his best feuds with Triple H.

It's difficult to see how the company could have just cast aside a feud like HBK vs The Game for Booker, but it would have been amazing to see. Perhaps the two could have feuded one-on-one during the time when they were both part of the NWO and Michaels delivered a Sweet Chin Music to Booker.

It would have been a great one-on-one to see.
