During an event organized to promote WrestleMania 39, Seth Rollins selected Shawn Michaels as his dream opponent at the Showcase of the Immortals. HBK hasn't set foot in the ring since Crown Jewel 2018, when he joined forces with Triple H to take on the Brothers of Destruction, The Undertaker and Kane.
Seth Rollins said: "I would love to face Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania. I teased him a bit about it, but he has no intention of returning to the ring at this stage in his life." Together with his great friend Triple H, HBK has helped NXT's young talents to fully express their talent.
Thanks to his fundamental contribution, the Black and Gold brand has become a very valid alternative to the Raw and SmackDown shows. "I didn't think that, after having performed in the ring for so many years, I would be able to find stimuli even working backstage.
I just want to repay their trust and not ruin everything. Helping young talent isn't as easy as it might seem. When they set foot in WWE, they are insecure and scared. They are hungry, they want to know how to get to WrestleMania as soon as possible.
I support them on their journey, without ever betraying their trust. We are the only brand in the world that deals with the 'production' of new wrestlers, destined one day to become the stars of Raw and SmackDown. Forging new and young superstars is the only watchword at NXT."
Seth Rollins is one of the most respected superstars on the WWE roster, having established himself for years as a point of reference for young talent. In addition to being a five-time world champion, he has won the Intercontinental title twice, once the United States Championship and six times the Raw Tag Team Championship, making him the eleventh wrestler to complete the Grand Slam.
As if that were not enough, the former Shield member won the 2014 edition of the Money in the Bank and the 2019 edition of the Royal Rumble match.
