While the possibility of him wrestling another match remains on the table, there are no talks within WWE of having Shawn Michaels working against CM Punk. Management really only wants him to return to work a match against Daniel Bryan.
"I've calmed down a lot. There were a lot of things I did to escalate that whole thing with [opponent] Shawn Michaels and [now WWE owner] Vince McMahon. I wouldn't change anything I did in terms of my own conduct but I regret all of it.Visit Wrestling Inc. I wish I had never left the WWE but I've moved on. I went back and shook Shawn's hand and it was good for everyone to bury the hatchet."
"Mick and I wanted that match to be something different. We had no background together. We didn't know if we were going to have chemistry. Both of us wanted to make a WWE Championship Match that wasn't typical of the business at the time. Mankind was an opponent with a rugged style that Shawn Michaels had never faced before. Had we not tried to add those extra elements, it wouldn't have felt special. I wasn't a fan of having a definite 'style.' I get that there are different styles, and some guys do things a certain way but, as a fan, I don't prefer one over another. So, throughout my whole career, it always made sense to go out and try to mix things up. One of the easiest ways to keep people from saying, 'It's the same old thing,' is to not continually do the same thing."
If you're in New Orleans this weekend and want a chance to meet Shawn Michaels, you're in luck. The legendary WWE performer will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans in attendance at the World of Wheels convention at the Superdome on Saturday at noon.
