WWE Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross believes that Shawn Michaels will stay retired unlike so many pro wrestlers before him.
The longtime voice of WWE penned his thoughts on HBK’s future and retirement speech on Raw in his latest blog.
“I do think that Shawn will call it a day after losing his retirement match Sunday.” Ross wrote.
“Shawn has been blessed to have earned a great deal of money over the years and especially since he returned from an approximate 4 year hiatus due to lingering back issues. Unlike many wrestlers who retire, HBK doesn’t have to worry about financial or legal issues and will be able to be essentially a full time dad to his two, young children which is an amazing blessing.”
Like so many of us who watched on Monday, Ross was also moved by Michaels’ farewell speech.
“Shawn’s farewell message Monday night on Raw was from his heart and not something that he read on a TelePrompter. What fans saw Monday night was legitimate, organic TV from arguably the greatest all around, in ring performer, certainly of his generation, and perhaps of all time. I sincerely appreciated Shawn’s shout out to me on Raw which was, symbolically, a fitting end to my own Wrestlemania tenure.”
