I read about it a long time ago and it was Shawn being a prick as per usual routine and disrespecting his "manager" behind the curtain. An incident that stuck with me was when Shawn won the title and told Jose to get the fuck out of the ring while he celebrated.
Edit: Found it. Notice Shawn calls Earl over and whispers something to him and then Earl goes to Jose and you can see Jose throw his hand up in a disappointed way, then proceed to leave the ring after standing in there for about 15 seconds.
...from this moment on, this'll be the moment...

I don't really have any idea what's happened bewtween them both, but with watching that WrestleMania clip above...all that looked like to me was that they just wanted Jose out the ring so he wasn't in the way to ruin the "WrestleMania moment" of when earl handed the belt to shawn while bret was looking on??? I could be wrong though lol
they seemed tight up until his retirement( injury ) maybe he was not interested in shawn once he was unable to wrestle anymore and never contacted him etc.... and as shawn has mentioned he realised who his real friends were when he wasnt with the company and when he returned in 2002...... and so didnt bother contacting him as he never cared for him when he wasnt wrestling anymore.
or shawn was his typical dickheaded self and when trips came into his life and dx happened he edged jose out as he wouldnt suit the look of walking to the ring in dx with him.

Nothing happened between Shawn Michaels and Jose Lothario other than Shawn Michaels not actually wanting to have a manager as he knew he didn't need one at the time when WWE wanted to bring Jose Lothario in. WWE were pushing Shawn Michaels as their top babyface back in 1995 and by early 1996 decided Jose Lothario would add a lot to Shawn Michaels as the sympathetic babyface but post Royal Rumble in 1997 they began pushing Shawn Michaels as an edgy babyface.
The reality is that Shawn Michaels didn't want or ask for a manager and Jose Lothario didn't really want to do it but Vince McMahon thought Jose Lothario would add a lot to the storyline leading into WrestleMania and "the boyhood dream" seeing as Jose Lothario had trained Shawn Michaels as an 18 year old boy. All it did though was water Shawn Michaels character down to the point where Shawn Michaels was booed in Madison Square Garden at Survivor Series in 1996 and following that Vince McMahon decided not to use Jose Lothario any more and pushed Shawn Michaels as an edgy and controversial babyface up until he turned heel post Summerslam in 1997.
