HBK Recalls The Toughest Day Of His Career, Wrestling McMahon
The Score Television Network’s Arda Ocal & Renee Paquette interviewed future WWE Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels. Highlights:
Was WrestleMania 14 being the “toughest day at the office” in his career? (2:00)
“Yeah. Yeah it was. I wasn’t in a good place physically, obviously. But also mentally. It was just bad, all around. It was the culmination of a lot of things – a lot of bad things. And I would love to tell everybody that I was faking – and fooling – everybody, but it was a pretty rough day at the office, to say the least. And I guess, because I was in such a horrible place at that time, I never really envisioned people really grasping the fact that – ‘holy cow man, I don’t care if I don’t like him, that dude is beating the heck out of himself and he’s not in any shape to be doing it’. Over time, people now get it. But when you’re doing it, you don’t realize that people are sort of uncomfortable watching you while you’re doing it.”
How he felt emotionally & physically after WrestleMania 14 (3:45)
His thoughts on Triple H vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 27 (5:45)
How he would feel if Triple H is the one to break the streak (7:40)
What he felt when wrestling Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 22 (9:10)
“What I really enjoyed about that WrestleMania is that I didn’t feel the pressure as I did in every other one. Because that one wasn’t so much – ‘hey, Shawn Michaels has got to be Mr. WrestleMania and steal the show’ – because I was in there with Vince McMahon, I don’t think people expect a phenomenal wrestling match. Just from a pressure standpoint, that being off my shoulders allowed me the fact the enjoy that I was out there with my boss and I get to beat the heck out of him.”
What he thinks of Vince McMahon, as a performer (10:00)
What was bigger for his career: the infamous barbershop incident or the creation of DX? (11:40)
