HBK Returns To Raw, Special Guest Referee At WWE HIAC (Updated)

Shawn Michaels returned to WWE on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw where he'll be part of the fan voting for the special guest referee of Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton at WWE Hell in a Cell for the vacant WWE title in a few weeks. Michaels joins Booker T and Bob Backlund as the fan choices that will be voted on through the WWE App later tonight.

It goes without saying that Michaels is expected to win the poll voting. This is why they scripted Booker T to drop the line that he would do 'what was best for business' and for Backlund to deliver the promo that he did. WWE has been wanting to bring Micheals back to TV as early as the beginning of August as we reported exclusively here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.

Monday, Oct. 7, 2013 10:19 PM EDT Update: Shawn Michaels won the fan voting by a landslide and will be the special guest referee for Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton for the vacant WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell in three weeks.  The pay-per-view will take place  Sunday, October 27, 2013 from the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, Florida. We’ll have exclusive live play-by-play coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.  End update.

    Michaels won the voting by a landslide, LoL. They should bring Stone Cold Steve Austin to all the special guest referee votings, then we will have some nice competition 😉

      Don’t you remember taboo Tuesday, they used Austin for that for years now it looks like its Shawns turn

  • Charles

    Bob Backlund would have been so much better.
