Shawn Michaels had an amazing career in the ring during his day and it’s no wonder why people still call him the Showstopper because Michaels still possesses an energy that gravitates people toward him.
HBK got on the microphone after guest refereeing the main event match in NXT San Antonio between Drew McIntyre and Adam Cole for the NXT Title. The crowd broke out into huge “one more match” chants toward HBK because they wanted to see him lock up in the ring once more.
After taking a bit of time, Michaels took the microphone and addressed the crowd who wanted to see him perform in the ring one more time. “I appreciate the sentiment of ‘one more match’ but after refereeing this match I can assure you that I am too old for shit sh-t,” said the WWE Hall Of Famer.
There was really nothing more NXT Champion Drew McIntyre could say after that so they closed the show shortly afterward. WWE might be in a PG Era, but if anyone’s gonna get away with dropping that kind of language on the microphone it’s gotta be HBK. After all, he could probably get away with way more in the ring and on the microphone if he really wanted to.
On a side note: if you don’t get the Lethal Weapon reference Michaels was using, I highly suggest you watch all four of those fantastic films as soon as possible.
