Shawn Michaels On CM Punk & Daniel Bryan Compared To Himself & Bret Hart, Jake Roberts
Shawn Michaels was asked about CM Punk and Daniel Bryan being this generation’s version himself and Bret Hart in an interview with Aftermath on The Score.
“I’m remiss at saying, ‘boy, it’s a big compliment to them!’ I hope they take it as a compliment… it’s just weird. If Bret and Shawn are something to be compared to, it’s only because we have a [Ric] Flair and [Ricky] Steamboat to be compared to. If that’s what we’re talking about, then I’m deeply complimented and honored to have that, and I hope that they are too.
“I do know that they are both very talented. It does not surprise me one bit that they have phenomenal matches, that they can continue to have something very special and consistent through the years because they’re both very talented. They both bring so much to the table… they don’t rest on their laurels, they’re two guys that want to continue to improve, continue to get better. Those are the same things that Bret and I strived for in each other, in ourselves and in our matches.”
Former WWE Superstar Jake “The Snake” Roberts talked with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas of The Score about the birth of the DDT, his opinion on how common it is in matches today, the correct way to execute / take a DDT and his willingness to return to WWE.
