Shawn Michaels

Vince Russo recently had Shawn Michaels on his podcast. In it, Shawn talked about his appearance at Wrestlemania 32. He said he was told by Vince McMahon that he had to get in shape because if Steve Austin was going to be in his gear, Shawn had to be in his gear too and that he got swerved by Vince.

Pretty funny line, but not true at all. Shawn was covering for his friend Triple H, who would have looked bad for a couple of reasons. Not just that Triple H was pushing for Roman Reigns to have assistance in beating him (had they gone with the finish where Michaels was the referee and Triple H laid hands on him first) but Hunter doesn't like when word gets out about Vince vetoing one of his ideas.
