• Shawn Michaels Was Involved In An Altercation Backstage At NXT TakeOver: In Your House
WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels was backstage at this past Sunday’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House event. He was also shown in a short segment with D-Generation X.
Fightful is reporting that HBK got involved in a heated argument with another producer backstage, which was related to the current political situation in the USA.
“Shawn Michaels was in a heated debate at NXT TakeOver: In Your House ahead of the show. Michaels was discussing the current social climate with another producer, when said producer mentioned that everyone already gets treated the same.
This didn’t sit well with Michaels, we’re told, who broke down systematic prejudice and inequality to the person in a very heated discussion.”
