In an interview with Cathy Kelley, AJ Styles talked about Shawn Michaels turning down a match against him which had been rumored for the 2017 Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas:

I would have loved the opportunity to have gotten in the ring with him. Im not sure what it is about Shawn and I that people see as like, Oh wow, these guys are one and the same. I would like to think that there are so many great matches by Shawn and hopefully there are a lot of great matches that you see me in. And thats the comparison. That [were] able to put on a show no matter who is in the ring with [us]. Its certainly a compliment.

Styles continued, I asked Shawn [about a match] and he said No. Well Thats on Shawn, guys. I cant do anything about that. I would love to opportunity to do that match, But I get where hes coming from too. Its one of those things where, if you say youre gonna retire Now, granted, he had a match after his retirement, one match but I understand not really wanting to do it. When I retire, I want to [stay] retired too.
