• Shawn Michaels Comments On The Original WrestleMania 22 Plan For Him
At WrestleMania 22 in 2006, Shawn Michaels was originally scheduled to face Eddie Guerrero in a first time ever match.
However, Eddie passed away in late 2005.
HBK then went on to face Mr. McMahon in a No Holds Barred match at WrestleMania 22 and won.
During a conference call for NXT Halloween Havoc 2022, Mr. WrestleMania said the following about his planned match with Guerrero:
“I’ve heard somebody pitched it at a creative meeting. It would’ve been a blast to do.
Where we were at later on in our careers, we probably would’ve argued about who was putting who over.
Neither one of us would’ve had a problem, that’s for sure. It would be my honor to put Eddie Guerrero over.”
