Shawn Michaels Talks WM21, Leaving WWE, more

Ben Johnson

  • Shawn Michaels recently sat down for an interview with the Edmonton Sun about a number of topics.

    — On A Possible Movie Career:

    “I’ve been world champion and I’m content with that. I’ve got no aspirations of being bigger than (Robert) De Niro or (Sylvester) Stallone.”

    “For actors, if it’s not in front of them, they’re lost. Our guys, they learn their lines but they also have to adjust and improvise and feel an audience.”

    — On His Match At WrestleMania 21:

    “I don’t know if it’ll be a showstealer or a classic. Only the fans and history will determine how high it will go.”

    “Kurt and I have a chance to be awesome, but you always worry that it’s being built up into something that’s unattainable. So I think there’s a little bit of pressure, but we’re going to go out and do our best to tear one down.”

    — On Leaving WWE:

    “I don’t ever see my relationship with the WWE ending. I’ll always do something with them. My role will just diminish, but like Ric Flair said, wrestlers never really retire.”
