While appearing on Edge and Christianís podcast, Shawn Michaels explains why he worked the match at Crown Jewel:

ďSo look one upside is itís just one of those things Iím curious about, you know can I do my stuff? So technically, yeah I could go in there and do my stuff and have a young guy work around me and all that, but the 100% only reason I said yes to this one was it was a special request by other people and again, I look at it as somebody has the [Rolling] Stones and KISS to come over and play their greatest hits.Ē

ďI mean this respectfully, of course, but technically Iíd make more with a singles match at WrestleMania, you know what I mean? Because that brand is bigger Iím charging more for a singles match. But I didnít feel like I was put in the position in that particular match to be that guy.Ē

ďThe idea of me working against a much younger guy at WrestleMania puts me in a much tougher difficult situation performance-wise and thatís something that has been consistent over the last eight years is I had not wanted to be put in that position because Iím good with the performances I had at WrestleMania and I wanted to end those the way that I ended them. This just happened to be a special thing that I didnít think in a million years would come up but it did and thatís honestly the only reason I said yes.Ē
