Houston Mitchell of The Los Angeles Times spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, who was promoting his DX panel at SummerSlam this Saturday at 7pm. Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:
Comparing DX to the Four Horsemen:
“They are different in the respect that the Horsemen were classier, more high-brow. The Four Horsemen were limousines and Lear Jets, while DX was trailer parks and outhouses. One was white trash, one was upper crust. I always saw DX and the NWO as the natural rivals at the time.”
His dream opponent, past or present:
“Ricky Steamboat. I would love to have gotten into it with Harley Race. He was such a good wrestler and rough and tough. We wrestled at the same time but never each other. And wrestling Sting would have been something I would have enjoyed. That would have been great at the box office. But if I had to pick, it would be Steamboat or Race.”
Michaels also discussed advice he’d give to himself when he was first starting, always being asked about the Montreal screwjob, his thoughts on DX when it first started and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
