- The official WWE website has published highlights from Shawn Michaels' recent interview with WWE Magazine discussing the various facets of professional wrestling he learned throughout his career, such as the art of cutting a promo, making an entrance and knowing what it means to fight an uphill battle.
During the interview, Michaels says wrestlers should learn to think outside the box as to not continually do the same thing over and over again. On his September 1996 match with Mankind at In Your House 10: Mind Games, Michaels states, "Mick and I wanted that match to be something different. We had no background together. We didn't know if we were going to have chemistry. Both of us wanted to make a WWE Championship Match that wasn't typical of the business at the time. Mankind was an opponent with a rugged style that Shawn Michaels had never faced before. Had we not tried to add those extra elements, it wouldn't have felt special. I wasn't a fan of having a definite 'style.' I get that there are different styles, and some guys do things a certain way but, as a fan, I don't prefer one over another. So, throughout my whole career, it always made sense to go out and try to mix things up. One of the easiest ways to keep people from saying, 'It's the same old thing,' is to not continually do the same thing."
- During Friday's episode of SmackDown, Rey Mysterio and the Usos joined CM Punk, Cody Rhodes and Goldust in a match against The Shield and The Wyatt Family. Courtesy of the WWE App, here is footage of the beginning of the bout, which did not air on Syfy.
