Last night on RAW, Randy Orton turned up the heat heading into SummerSlam by taking out his latest punt victim – WWE legend Shawn Michaels.

While the segment itself was decent enough, many fans noted that HBK may not have done a particularly overwhelming job of selling the actual punt move.

One man who definitely buys into that idea is none other than former WWE superstar Lio Rush.

At the age of 55 we can’t exactly expect Michaels to be moving around in the same way he used to back in the day, but it does bring up an interesting point regarding the need to have veterans like Shawn on WWE programming.

Either way, the stakes are certainly high as we look ahead to SummerSlam where Randy Orton will challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.
