Michaels was instead a guest on MizTV, which irked the perma-angry Dolph Ziggler.
Mr. “It Should Have Been Me” told Michaels that he was sick of the legends taking up WWE TV time and called his return to the ring at Crown Jewel last year “embarrassing”.
Ziggler said the same thing about Bill Goldberg’s return match earlier this year at Super Showdown.
Michaels surprisingly agreed with Ziggler that his return was embarrassing but pointed out that Ziggler was a second rate Shawn Michaels who had accomplished nothing, which was worse.
Ziggler continued to complain so Miz told him to stop whining and do something about it. Ziggler eventually threw a punch at Shawn, who ducked, and Ziggler hit Miz.
Shawn retaliated with a few punches to Dolph but ended up eating a superkick as he was checking on Miz.
Now, logically this would lead to a programme between Ziggler and Michaels at SummerSlam, which Ziggler would win to give him some desperately needed credibility.
However, this is WWE, where things just happen because they happen and matches and rivalries exist out of the blue rather than because of any semblance of build.
In other words, don’t expect Shawn to be lacing up his boots again in Toronto or indeed anywhere else at any point in the future.
