Shawn Michaels is set to make his official in-ring return at WWE Crown Jewel where he will tag with Triple in a newly reformed DX to take on The Undertaker and Kane. But it turns out that HBK is scratching that pro wrestling itch a little earlier than expected.
The Showstopper participated in the NXT UK television taping on Sunday where he got involved in the dark match main event of Gallus vs Moustache Mountain & Travis Banks.
Mustache Mountain and Banks pulled off the big win after HBK and Pete Dunne got involved. Michaels reportedly hit the Sweet Chin Music on all 3 members of Gallus to pop the crowd big-time. HBK also became the special referee in the process.
This was a dark match so it’s likely not going to air in any form so it was just for fans who made the taping as a thanks for sitting through the whole show and being there for the process. If anything, it’s nice to know that HBK is still able to fire off his Sweet Chin Music on his way to WWE Crown Jewel.
An amazing weekend of NXT action ends with @trentseven, @Tyler_Bate , @Travis_BanksPW defeating Gallus, with some big help from @PeteDunneYxB & @ShawnMichaels, what a night and what a weekend! #NXTUKPlymouth #NXTUK pic.twitter.com/psK3UCZrq9
