– It was speculated that Shawn Michaels was referring to Ric Flair when he said he couldn’t mention someone’s name during his WWE Hall of Fame induction speech. Shawn revealed on Twitter that he was talking about Vince McMahon. He wrote:
“There seems 2b confusion on the “who” I couldn’t mention during my speech. It was Vince. He doesn’t want focus on him. U wanna c the real Vince watch the HOF ring presentation on the WWE Diary w/me. The rest is gimmick, don’t believe what u read. It sounds like a schill but its fact. But of course that’s jus 1 guys opinion that actually knows him…for 20+ yrs. Whadda I know.”
– When Sin Cara attacked Sheamus on RAW this past Monday, a WWE crew member pushed a mini-trampoline from under the ring as Cara ran towards it. There was concern backstage that the trick could go wrong if the trampoline wasn’t in the right position, which it wasn’t. The trampoline was positioned so close to the ring that Cara almost didn’t clear the top rope when he went to attack Sheamus.
On a related note, Cara was originally planned to leap from the top rope onto Sheamus on the floor with a tornado twist in mid-air. He called an audible during the angle and ended up doing the high crossbody. (Source: PWTorch Newsletter)
