HBK: ‘The Rock Wasn’t Interested In Working With Me’

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels recently appeared on Jim Ross’ podcast, The Ross Report. Below are some highlights from the interview.

Michaels on his WrestleMania 22 match with Vince McMahon and not feeling any pressure to be the main attraction or working with the boss: “I just felt like having a WrestleMania where I wasn’t sort of expected to go out there and tear the house down. I just wanted to have one where it was just sort of relaxing and fun.”

Michaels on The Rock not being interested to work a program with him: “I can remember many, many years ago, as I came back. Pat Patterson asked about that and I said, ‘Sure, whoever you want.’ But he [The Rock] wasn’t interested, and that was it. But I liked anybody that I hadn’t been in the ring with.”

    The Rock was more into wrestling monster like Hogan and Cena than average sized guys like Michaels. This is not ment to be a knock on HBK, whom I sure could’ve had a great match with The Rock. But The Rock likes to play David while guys like Stone Cold play Goliath.

    Hate to say it but the Rock is an egomaniac. Regardless of how he felt about Shawn Michaels he should have wrestled him for the fans. The Rock vs Shawn Michaels is one of the great dream matches that never happened and now never will and the Rock can’t honestly say he is the Great One since he never defeated Mr Wrestlemania.
