In this clip, the former WWE Champion looked back on his streak vs. career match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 26 in 2010 that served as Michaels’ retirement match.
This is where he noted how he was jealous of Michaels for deciding to retire from wrestling and being okay with that decision. Of course, Taker has made it known how he has trouble with the decision to retire for good. To read about Taker’s original opponent at this show, click here.
“I’m so envious of Shawn because he was able to walk away and he was good with it. Do I wish I had that kind of clarity? Absolutely, I wish I had that clarity. He had the clarity before going into the match. Hopefully, when I have the match I’m looking for, in one way or another, I have that clarity. Okay, that’s it.”
It should be noted that HBK did later come out of retirement for a tag team match at Crown Jewel 2018 but went right back into retirement.
