Shawn Michaels was the special guest on this week’s edition of “The Ross Report,” hosted by Jim Ross, and the subject of WWE wanting Michaels to return to the company in an in-ring capacity came up.

When asked by JR if WWE might try to get guys like him and Steve Austin to appear at WrestleMania 32 since it’s in Texas, Michaels answered simply by saying “I’ve already had an offer. I’ve enjoyed being retired.”

An offer to appear at WrestleMania 32 is apparently not the only thing WWE has asked Michaels, as HBK revealed he has also been asked to be a part of the WWE creative team.

“It wouldn’t be a great fit for me,” Michaels admitted. “There’d be a lot of stifling going on. I’ve been able to sway them on things other people couldn’t. I’d be open to the Pat Patterson gig, where you have a couple of projects and you could write in from home about it. If you’re going to be there every week, you might as well go back and be an on-air character and make more money.”

According to a report from PWInsider.com, WWE officials sent a cease and desist letter to ProWrestlingTees.com shortly after WrestleMania, ordering them to remove certain items from the official store of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

While the former WWE Champion maintains that there’s little-to-no heat between him and the company, it’s being said there is still frustration from the WWE side over Austin turning down “Tough Enough” and not appearing at this year’s WrestleMania. We have reached out to both sides for comment, and will update the story should more information become available.
