Re: Shawn Michaels back injury saved his life?
I pretty much agree with that. I'd hate to think what would've happened to Shawn had he not been injured and kept on going. The way he was headed, would he even have made it to the year 2000?
If anyone's interested in a timeline of when Shawn & Hunter had their backstage fight and Shawn was fired, it was the Raw before WM 17 where Chris Jericho surprised William Regal by dressing as Doink the Clown. (credit: Jericho's 2nd book)
