WWE's website recently spoke with Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and Shawn Michaels about the infamous "Curtain Call" moment at Madison Square Garden on May 19th, 1996. The interview was done at the WWE Hall of Fame and the website noted Triple H was busy working. During the interview, they were asked if there was any locker room blowups that night.
"It was not a big deal until it became a big deal," Michaels said. "It didn't become a big deal to us until it became a big deal to Vince. What happened was the same thing that happened a lot of times — [Mr. McMahon] on the ride to wherever, getting phone calls. Honestly, it was big to the old timers in the locker room before it was big anywhere else."
"On the other side of the coin, I understand the talent that was still there thinking, 'What's with these dudes? They're leaving and they're trying to hurt us,'" said Hall. "That wasn't the way it was. Sorry, man, we stayed out there a long time because the fans were cheering. Had they not cheered, we'd have left. It became really emotional."
