Shawn Michaels spoke with The Baltimore Sun about tonight’s episode of Raw, which has been advertised locally in San Antonio as being “Shawn Michaels’ Appreciation Night”. Here is what Michaels said about tonight’s Raw event.
“I honestly don’t know what to expect. I have probably less information than you guys do, which is [WWE's] doing. I do my best to always take that as a compliment. I like to feel that they basically know that they sort of let me know what’s going on that day, then we can go ahead and get it done.”
“If this turns into a one-time roast for me, I enjoy that as much as everybody else does. That’s the reason I’ve hung around Triple H for all these years — it’s because he’s always made me laugh. So if that’s what it entails, then that works for me.”
