There were reports last year that WWE wanted Shawn Michaels to come out of retirement for a match against his former student Daniel Bryan. Michaels addressed those reports in the latest Ross Report podcast interview with Jim Ross.

Michaels said when he would attend a WWE show, people would always bring up something with Bryan but those people were never the decision makers. Michaels made it clear that he makes the decision on his in-ring future and said never once in the almost 5 years that he's been retired has he given anyone the impression that he was thinking about wrestling again.

Shawn said that beyond costing Daniel Bryan the WWE Title at Hell In a Cell last October, nothing else was planned. Shawn acknowledged that angle appeared to be leading to a match between the two. Shawn then came up with the idea of going back out on RAW and letting Bryan put him in the Yes Lock.
