When Shawn Michaels and Adam Cole had their brief staredown on NXT, fans everywhere went crazy for the possibilities. However, Triple H was quick to pour cold water on the idea of the two meeting in the ring.
Michaels himself was asked about the moment on the media call that followed night one of NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver last night and revealed his thoughts on the moment, where he had some interesting things to say.
“Well look, I was walking back from the ring, and he just started staring at me. So I just started staring back. That Adam Cole, if he looks at me wrong, I might have to slap the taste out of his mouth. Na, I’m just kidding. I love Adam Cole! He’s one of my boys. Everybody knows some of the similarities between Adam Cole and myself.”
“To me, that was just a fun, awesome moment. That was just a moment between Adam Cole and myself. Got to say for me, it was kind of fun, and it got me a little giddy too because that’s one of those ones that you wish you were 10 or 15 years younger. That would have been cool at one time.”
Outside Crown Jewel 2018, Michaels has been pretty true to his word about retirement. And though we may never see the dream match, we know HBK is as interested in it as we are.
