How did HBK feel about Diesel surpassing him in 95?

Even though they were tight, do you think HBK felt some type of way about Nash surpassing him for the title in 95?

I dont think Nash ever truly surpassed him.

Re: How did HBK feel about Diesel surpassing him in 95?

Nash spoke about it before. I recall him talking about Shawn taking the worst jackknife ever on purpose to make him look bad in a match together.

I honestly don't remember the exact circumstances but it was either when he had the title or just before, i dunno.

He also spoke about HHH and Mick Foley purposefully making him lok bad in a HIAC match.

Maybe someone else can shed better light on these incidents because i don't remember the full stories.

What do you mean surpass him? You could argue that at one point Kevin Nash had surpassed Shawn Michaels during the New World Order angle. But I would say if you checked into both of their careers at different points, nine out of 10 times Shawn was ahead.

they were and are BFFs so i doubt he was too upset about it. both still held top spots.

probably pissed... Nash talked about how Michaels would try and make him look bad or blow him.

Gotta think HBK brought the dude to the WWF. Probably pissed as hell that he took the spot he wanted.

Nash surpassed HBK in 1995 from a booking stand point. On one hand his best friend became champ, which probably strengthened him politically backstage. But I'm sure Shawn didn't like anyone, friend or foe, getting that spot instead of him.

Bret Hart previously had that spot and was roughly Shawn's size, so he must have considered it a realistic goal.

Shawn Michaels was gone for a while after WM that year and got the IC belt when he returned because he turned face and they weren't ready to turn Diesel heel yet, Nash didn't "surpass" him. The plan was for HBK to get the belt at the following WM the moment he turned face.

If you listen to Nash, it sounds like that was the case. The guy Shawn helped bring in, got over, and ended up champion in his first full year with the company. Knowing the egos, Shawn had to have felt some kind of way.

Check out the trailer for my first feature film
