On the most recent edition of Booker T’s Heated Conversations podcast, WWE Champion AJ Styles talked about the possibility of a “dream match” against Shawn Michaels.
“It’s not up to me to have dream matches,” AJ told Booker. “It’s up to the WWE Universe to have those dream matches and whatever they want, I want to deliver. Now, whether or not Shawn would like to do something like that, that’s totally up to him. I totally respect who he is and what he [has] done for this business. And so, that’s totally in his court.”
Styles had previous said in Sports Illustrated that he wanted to face Michaels at the Royal Rumble. Jim Ross wrote on his blog that based on his conversations with Michaels, he thinks the match is a “long shot” but that Michaels would at least consider a request like that from WWE. “I’d realistically put the odds of this main event happening at less than 50-50 but I’d love to be wrong on this one,” Ross wrote in October.
