Look, Shawn Michaels, you don’t get to ham it up with used-up quips about how you get exhausted making your entrance. You were just there two weeks ago. On two of the three episodes of the three-hour era, Michaels got more screen time than everyone on the roster who’s not John Cena or CM Punk, and spent most of it mugging at the camera and hyping Triple H, whose character is already established as the coolest and toughest and strongest and doesn’t need yet more hype.
Okay, granted, I did laugh at HBK’s goofy-ass shirt but that’s about it.
Sorry for being such a downer, and on Shawn Michaels Appreciation Night too, but his sudden beef with Brock Lesnar doesn’t make a whole lot of sense even if Paul Heyman made a snarky joke. And like Stephanie McMahon did last week, Michaels took up valuable time and space as one more week’s worth of the former UFC Heavyweight champ’s few appearances went by, with the audience getting to see very little asskicking and very much standing around while Triple H’s music played.
HBK announced he’ll be in Triple H’s corner for his Summerslam match against Lesnar, and it makes no business sense for Michaels to do anything other than get absolutely crushed by Lesnar before all is done.
Check out Lesnar’s couple of cross words at Michaels and H below:
