Shawn Michaels Discusses Rumoured Heat With The Rock

Shawn Michaels has spoken about the supposed heat between him and The Rock

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels has addressed the rumours of alleged heat between him and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. 

It has long been claimed that The Great One previously had issues with The Heartbreak Kid, stretching back to when a young Michaels allegedly disrespected Johnson's grandmother during a show in Hawaii.

The two then butted heads during The Rock's rookie WWE years, with the bad blood supposedly convincing Johnson not to work with Michaels when Shawn returned to the ring in 2002. 

Speaking about the conflict during an appearance on Logan Paul's IMPAULSIVE podcast, HBK said: 

"I've never worked with him. I work with — you know, his daughter is here [in NXT], you know what I mean? So look, the times I've seen him, we've always gotten along okay. I'll say this, that was never — I don't think it was as bad as everyone made it out to be. Yeah, you know what I mean? I mean, I know again, I gave everybody a hard time back when I was younger. But when I came back, I made sure I went up to everybody and at least [said] like, 'Sorry'. Honestly, that's the best that I could do though".

On his efforts to make amends for past behaviour when he returned in 2002, Michaels said: 

"But I tried, when I came back in 2002, I knew there was going to be [a reaction] of like, Yeah, we'll see'. It was important to me to go around and make amends, at least tell everyone, 'Sorry about the way I was. And I got no excuse but I'm willing to earn back whatever. And look, if you never talk to me again, I'm cool with that too'".
