As we already know, this year’s Royal Rumble pay per view (PPV) will be held in San Antonio, Texas from the Alamodome for the first time in over twenty years.
Rumours of various Texas wrestling legends such as Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sting, and The Undertaker could be returning for the event, making it one of the biggest events in recent memory. When it comes to rumours of a return for one of these stars, however, ‘The Heart Break Kid’ Shawn Michaels is topping that list.
Michaels has a rather fond memory in the Alamodome, as he defeated Sycho Sid back in 1997 in that very arena to win the WWE Championship, not to mention San Antonio, Texas is ‘The Heart Break Kid’s’ hometown.
While Michaels recently moved to Orlando for a short period of time in order to work as a fill-in trainer for the WWE Performance Center in Florida. As for now, Michaels seems to be enjoying his retirement since walking away from the squared circle.
However, reports have surfaced that the WWE has attempted numerous times to get the former WWE champ to return to the ring. One of the most notable instances was where Wrestlemania 32 took place in Texas and ‘The Heart Break Kid’ refused to return for the show of shows in his home state.
Michaels’ last match in the WWE was at Wrestlemania 26 in Arizona when he lost his ‘Streak vs. Career’ match to The Undertaker in the main event of the show. Michaels and Taker had put on quite the performance, stealing the show in the process, the previous year back in Houston, Texas at Wrestlemania 25.
Their match at Wrestlemania 25 has been regarded as one of the best professional wrestling matches of all time.
