– Shawn Michaels is currently promoting the release of the WWE Studios film The Resurrection of Gavin Stone, which means he’s making the media rounds and providing plenty of quotes related to his time in wrestling. All anyone wants to know about, however, is whether or not that time could include a return to the ring.
Here is what he said during an interview with FoxNews.com
“We all have gifts and I guess all the rocket scientists were given away by the time I got there,” he joked. “[My gift] was in the world of the WWE and I’m thankful for that.”
He added, “No, I don’t want to go back and wrestle again…But some big bubble could break and I might need money like everybody else. It’s wrestle or bag groceries — [that’s] all I’m qualified to do.”
– According to a report by PWInsider.com on Thursday, Theodore Long is under consideration to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2017.
Long began his career in 1985 for the National Wrestling Alliance, where he ran errands for wrestlers. From there, he became a member of a ring crew, then referee and eventually manager. In 1998, he joined WWE as a referee before returning to managing in 2003. He later served as General Manager of SmackDown for two tenures lasting a combined six years as well as one reign as ECW General Manager
Long would join announced headliner Kurt Angle. Other rumored names for this year’s Hall of Fame Class include Diamond Dallas Page, “Ravishing” Rick Rude and Beth Phoenix.
