At WWE’s Crown Jewel event, it finally happened – Shawn Michaels made his in-ring return after the best part of a decade out of action – and HBK proved he hadn’t missed a step as he played a huge part in closing the show.
But what’s next for Michaels? Will he compete inside the ring? Well, the man himself provided an update on his future after the event in Saudi Arabia.
After a victorious outing in his comeback match at Crown Jewel, Shawn Michaels spoke exclusively with WWE to confirm what lies ahead for him in the future.
HBK hinted that his comeback may indeed be a one and done, stating that it proved to him why he hasn’t done it for eight years and why he’ll never do it again. In addition, he also revealed that he’s ready to return to his “regular life” working behind the scenes in the company, notably as a trainer at the Performance Center and an NXT producer.
