Shawn Michaels discussed his thoughts on recent rumors that WWE may put more focus on the tag-team division once again, during a recent interview with the Ministry of Slam wrestling radio show. Shawn Michaels joined up with the Ministry Of Slam wrestling radio show for an exclusive 60-minute talk. During the interview, HBK talked abou this career and specifically focused on several notable aspects of his lengthy tenure in wrestling. He was discussed his thoughts on recent rumors that WWE may be about to put more focus on the tag-team division once again. "I really don't know (what the future holds for tag-team wrestling)", Michaels stated. "When we were doing it, there were a lot of talented and very different tag-teams, but I think it might be fair to say that the business is more individually-oriented now. That's why I don't know if things can go back to the way they were, as phenomenal as it was. I also think that when there was a number of different territories, it wasn't a strange thing for the tag-teams to be the main draw. Obviously that's something, perhaps from a business standpoint, people don't think can be a reasonable expectation now, so it's more focused on individuals." "Regardless, I think a lot of it comes down to the guys themselves – I think they're more individually focused, and a lot of folks look at being in tags as a stepping stone to get towards an individual career. I know that's something I obviously did, but it was never really the intention at the time. Marty and I of course talked about it, but when he and I got together it was really our first break. That's all we thought about, how we could be the best team possible." "As for any resurgence of tag-team wrestling? I really can't say, it's impossible for me to get into the minds of individuals, but I don't know if that's a real focus now with the guys. Not a lot of guys seem to go into tags looking to make that team the absolute best it can be. Whether the company standpoint is that guys have to be individuals in order to be successful, or that comes from the wrestlers themselves, there does seem to be more emphasis on single success now than there was back when I started." The full interview is available on a 3-hour edition of MOS Radio, available via Podbean, iTunes and by visiting MinistryOfSlam.com.
