Michaels is not booked for Tuesday's Smackdown taping.
Meanwhile, Michaels has taken to Twitter, responding to comments from fans ripping him, making references to actors playing villainous roles in film and TV, pretty much reminding everyone that he was just doing what he was scripted to do. Michaels is probably the only person contracted to WWE that can get away with that!
Here are a pair of the Twitter responses in question:
@MaryLLawhorn. How about Bruce Dern? You know, when he shot John Wayne in the movie "The Cowboys." Just a thought:-)— Shawn Michaels (@ShawnMichaels) October 28, 2013
@H_coreRedneck. Suppose we should be angry at all the actors who've play him over the years as well...ooh & the guy who plays satan:-)— Shawn Michaels (@ShawnMichaels) October 28, 2013
