WWE News: AJ Styles Talked About Shawn Michaels Denying Match With Him
Once in a while, we receive a match where two of the bests of their respective generations delivers an instant classic to go down in the history books. Matches like Bret Hart-Shawn Michaels or Undertaker-Michaels at Wrestlemania are examples of the same. The current era’s fans wanted to see another such match featuring Michaels for quite a long time. But the legend has not moved from his stance to compete in a singles contest that failed to culminate the contest.
WWE United States Champion AJ Styles is the concerned person whom we consider to be the modern version of Shawn Michaels. Ever since he walked into the WWE in Royal Rumble 2016, WWE Universe wanted to see him in a match against the WWE Hall of Famer. But unfortunately, the veteran player was not willing to lace up the boots, as per the previous reports. Plus, AJ himself opened up about the match not happening due to the same reason.
While speaking with Cathy Kelly on WWE Now, AJ Styles shared the experience with the fans. He would love to wrestle the very best that the pro-wrestling business has to offer in the form of Shawn Michaels. Plus, he has also asked for the match in the recent past only to hear a straight-up no from the Heart-Break Kidd,
“I asked Shawn [about a match] and he said ‘No.’ Well That’s on Shawn, guys. I can’t do anything about that. I would love to opportunity to do that match.”

The Phenomenal One added that he understands why Shawn Michaels would have thrown away an opportunity like this. He called a quit to the wrestling career in the most perfect way against The Undertaker and does want to keep it in that way. These two sharing the ring might have produced perhaps the best match of all-time as per many of the fans.
Besides, some might say that Shawn Michaels did make his comeback at WWE Crown Jewel, last year. But that was a tag team match which is way different than a full singles contest. HBK is quite strict on not competing against younger opponents than him that exposes his ring-rust. So, the phenomenal athlete of this generation, AJ Styles could not have this particular match in his resume.
