During a recent appearance on Jim Ross’ Ross Report podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was asked about part timers like Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg taking up top spots at Major PPVs like WrestleMania.
Michaels noted how the Wrestling Business is a “business” and it all comes down to making big money. Below is what HBK said:
“The fact of the matter is this. If I could’ve filled up the building, they would have had me there, but I couldn’t and that was the reality. Heck, there were times where I was on top and still didn’t fill up the building, so you’ve got to… again, it’s one of those processes where it might not be fun, but you’ve got to man up.”
HBK then talked about how long should Lesnar vs. Goldberg at WrestleMania 33 be:
“It is, it’s one of those, whatever the object that doesn’t move and the immovable force or however that saying goes. And I think they will, I think they’ll do their high-impact stuff, but the thing is, I think both of those guys are smart enough, they’ll get some mileage out of that and be able to tell a good story with that.” Michaels continued, “I’m going to say, I think with those guys, they can tell a story, I mean, you might feel that it’s too much, but I feel like 17-ish, 15 to 17.”
