The Showoff lambasted Michaels, mocking several of his recent appearances in a WWE ring. HBK didn’t mince words, retorting that more embarrassing than anything that he has done was the fact that Ziggler would only ever be known as “a second-rate Shawn Michaels wannabe.” The Showoff continued to bark at the WWE Hall of Famer until The Miz interjected and demanded that Dolph do something about it if he was gonna keep talking about how “it should have been him.” It appeared that Ziggler was about to take off, but when Michaels stopped him short, The Showoff took a swing. Michaels ducked, but the punch connected with Miz. After Michaels briefly checked on The Miz, he turned back around right into a vicious superkick from The Showoff, who dashed out of the ring before Miz could get his hands on him.
The whole ordeal was blatantly disrespectful… and Ziggler seemed to revel in every single second of it.
