— Shawn Michaels noted on Twitter last night that he would not be watching the Survivor Series, writing:
“I won’t be watchin SS I’m way out of touch w/whats goin on so I can’t really give u any predictions.2 those who watch hope u enjoy. Didn’t watch much when I was doin it. Gettin 2 absorbed makes u less objective IMO. Felt I cud think out of box more that way. That’s what worked 4 me jus an opinion. Who knows diff strokes 4 diff folks. That seemed 2 work 4 me. If it aint broke don’t fix it. The important thing is that U ALL enjoy it. Shudnt matter what I thinl anyway. We r 2 provide a service 4 u, bottom line.”
Michaels posted a follow-up message after being questioned over his comments. He revealed that he no longer watches wrestling.
“That’s why I don’t talk/watch wrestling w/u all. Everybody starts playing psychologist. Holy cow its not that deep. Pretty simple 4 me. God called me home. I went home. That’s about the extent of it. No deep feelings of guilt, despair, longing.
“Just done wrestling. Sorry its not romantic enuff 4 sum of u. Works 4 me tho. Altho I’m pretty simple. So there u go.”
