Last night on WWE Monday Night RAW, we were all pleasantly surprised to see Shawn Michaels. Not only did he make an appearance, he made one during a CM Punk segment. Everyone was expecting things to get totally out of control, but things remained rather calm between the Showstopper and the Best in the World.
Punk let Michaels know that he was somewhat happy that his childhood idol took a shot at him. I think it would be cool if I felt a little Sweet Chin Music from the Heartbreak Kid as well. Punk is very lucky. Not only does he get to be “knocked out cold” by WWE legends, but he also has AJ Lee and Michelle Beadle fighting over him in hallways. Life could not be any better for the Straight-Edged Superstar.
Now that we know a little more about the direction the WWE is taking with Punk, let us talk about some of the possible storylines we will see in the near future. Michaels may have respect for Punk and vice versa, but I am not buying it. I still believe there is a possibility that we will see more from these two.
The crowd chanted “one more match” as Michaels stood in the ring, but I doubt if we’ll ever see HBK in action again. I personally choose to believe that Shawn is in ring-shape, but the WWE does not want us to think that at this point. If it comes to the point where Michaels is flying off the top rope and dropping elbows on Punk, then we will have a good idea where things would be headed. For now, it is highly uncertain what’s coming next for Punk.
