HBK vs Adam Cole at WM35?

This is an idea I have had for an amazing match.....

HBK always said he wouldn't come out of retirement unless there was a chance for a once in a lifetime match.

If he's willing to do it for a mediocre tag team match with three other old guys that steals a spot from actual full time wrestlers, then he should be willing to do it to put someone over.

And Adam Cole is the perfect choice for such a match. People compare him to HBK and even call him the next Shawn Michaels at times. This would allow for a storyline to be built around HBK coming out of retirement to "put him in his place." It could use the classic, "legends doesn't respect the younger wrestler, the two of them put on an amazing match, young wrestler earns legend's respect" formula which had worked so well in the past.

Re: HBK vs Adam Cole at WM35?

It's not the first match on my list of potential HBK matches, but it's definitely one I wouldn't mind seeing.

That being said, I don't know if there's enough time to build Cole up enough on the main roster to justify such a match. At least not at 35.

As much as I want Shawn Michaels to go back to retirement ASAP I like your idea, honestly.

Re: HBK vs Adam Cole at WM35?

Why the hell do people call anybody the next somebody else? I'd prefer if people were the best them that they can be.

That said I don't want to watch Michaels wrestle anymore. He's a legend for sure but there comes a point where you just don't want to see it regardless of who they are wrestling against.

I'd prefer HBK vs AJ or HBK vs Bryan.

Re: HBK vs Adam Cole at WM35?

I'd mark. The similarities are definitely there, and I think Cole is a good talent. Would be a big feud for his main roster call-up.

The story could write itself, match could have potential. That being said, I don't want Cole on the main roster by WrestleMania 35.

Re: HBK vs Adam Cole at WM35?

Now that I think of it though, I'd still go with this first.
