Shawn Michaels explains why he doesn’t miss WWE, says ‘it’s easy not to miss’

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) WrestleMania 32 showed that Shawn Michaels still has it in him to deliver what the fans want. However, The Show Stopper himself is not too keen on returning to the ring for one last match. Mr. WrestleMania made it crystal clear that the current WWE product doesn’t attract him anymore.

“Everybody asks me, ‘Do you miss it?’ No, I don’t miss it, because what’s on TV now isn’t what I used to do. So it’s easy not to miss.” Michaels said to Vince Russo on his podcast, available on

Shawn Michaels last wrestled for the company at WrestleMania 26 against The Undertaker. During his stay with the wrestling promotion, The Showstopper has witnessed a lot of changes in the company’s philosophy and how it operated. The 50-year-old believes that what he did was very different than how the promotion operates now and that he would not feel happy to be a part of it regularly anymore.

Michaels made his debut for WWE (then WWF) in 1988 and went on to become a four-time world champion. He earned the tag Mr. WrestleMania for stepping up his game on the grandest stage of them all.

Shawn Michaels returned once again at WrestleMania 32 alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley to take out the League of Nations. The entire WWE universe got immersed in the charisma of the man from Chandler, Arizona and wishes him to return for one last run in the company.

At the age of 50, Michaels looked extremely athletic and dynamic to suggest that given another opportunity, he may very well entertain the crowd more that most of the current wrestlers in the WWE locker room.

Being more of an old-school wrestling man, it’s understandable that Michael doesn’t favor the current product which inclines more towards advertising and social media that the true roots of professional wrestling.
