Original plan for Hogan/HBK storyline revealed; Attack on Hogan's child?
Submitted by Brian Cantor on Wednesday, August 3, 2005 at 9:29 PM EST
In preliminary discussions regarding the Hogan-HBK angle, The Hulkster
suggested that Shawn Michaels perform his signature "Sweet Chin Music" on
Nick Hogan, either at Summerslam or during the build-up on RAW. Shawn
Michaels, however, nixed the idea.
Rejecting the angle was seemingly not a difficult call for Shawn Michaels,
who had two key objections. Although HBK has been assigned the role of heel
in the storyline, Michaels was not interested in a move that would get him
over as a very strong villain. Additionally, he felt that such an added
extra would not be necessary in building up the match, as their career
legacies are enough to create a dream match. Since it was there first time
wrestling, he wanted the magnitude of "Icon vs. Legend" to prevail over
specific storyline items.
