Former WWE Name Reflects On Shawn Michaels Refusing To Drop Intercontinental Title WWE

A former WWE name reflected on Shawn Michaels refusing to drop the Intercontinental Championship.

Shawn Michaels is known as one of the greatest in-ring performers to step foot in the squared circle, but his attitude in the WWE locker room during the 90s also gained him notoriety.

On the latest “Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda”, the former WWE referee discussed some of Michaels’ most infamous antics.

In regards to HBK refusing to drop the Intercontinental Title, Chioda said:

“I’m keeping my f***ing IC title.” 

“Vince I remember he was f***ing steaming and he paused for a few seconds and he goes, ‘Well okay, ‘cos I’ve got many more where that f***ing came from in my bottom drawer, I’ll just get a new one.'”

“Shawn goes, ‘Well you’re not gonna have this one.’ They had their [fights], but Shawn’s got a lifetime contract with them now, it’s awesome.”

The subject of Michaels’ SummerSlam 2005 match against Hulk Hogan was brought up during the podcast as well.

In regards to Shawn’s overselling during the bout, Chioda said:

“you don’t tell Shawn Michaels what to do, even with Hogan in the ring.”

“You choose to do that and oversell, that was probably something he was p***ed off with Vince and just was sticking it up Vince’s a**.” 

“He basically was ‘I’ll do what I want to do.'”

Shawn Michaels is now WWE’s Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative and is the head of NXT.
