If being manhandled in negotiations for his match with Hogan was not upsetting enough, Shawn Michaels’ learning that Chris Masters was to be his next opponent did the trick. As has been reported, Michaels chewed out the creative team in a backstage meeting for not having a better plan for his post-Hogan storyline.
What was not initially reported, however, is that Michaels later apologized to each member of the creative team for his actions. While the yelling was reflective of the old Shawn Michaels, his apologizing reflects his increased morality after being reborn.
As with the Hogan storyline, Michaels is once again being praised for working through the negative thoughts associated with the angle.
