Shawn Michaels surprised a lot of people when his bandana fell off during a bump in the lead-up to WWE Crown Jewel and he was bald. Plenty of jokes and memes were made, but HBK likes it and so does his wife.
While speaking to E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Shawn Michaels revealed that his actual reason for shaving his head was for a movie role, but he kept it that way because Triple H already had a chrome dome so they would match.
“Before this storyline started, I was doing a movie. I did this independent movie in Texas where I played a younger version with my hair and then I played an older version of me that got sick and everything else, so that’s why I ended up shaving it for the movie.”
“And then, I get called in to do this thing, and I though, ‘Do you know what? Hunter has got his head bald. I’m just going to go ahead and leave it that way.’ And it was thinning up there anyway, man, and so it was better to just chop it all off and now, it was gotten to where my wife likes it and you know the short stuff is much easier to manage.”
It sounds like HBK had a pretty good idea when it came to keeping his hair short. After all, long hair is harder to manage and if it was initially for an acting role, I can’t wait to see this flick when it is released.
