Hello, this is Sherard Quow, and I'm back again to talk about Shawn Michaels returning to the ring.

As you know, Shawn Michaels took a well-needed vacation off the WWE after his unprecedented, 5-star match against The Undertaker at Wrestlemania this year so that he can recover from knee problems and some past injuries.

But, according to, Shawn is expected to return to the WWE this summer with the WWE having some big plans for him.

Also according to, it is believed that Shawn Michaels will be working DX reunion matches with Triple H on the road this fall, although it is not confirmed that the WWE will bring back DX on television.

And there is also talk about having Randy Orton defending the WWE title against Shawn Michaels in his hometown, San Antonio at Armageddon this December, if Randy Orton is still champion.

So for all you fans who want HBK to come back earlier than expected, you can anticipate for a return somewhere between Summerslam and WWE Breaking Point (formerly known as Unforgiven).

And for the fans who want to see HBK turn heel, it is not expected to happen.

And this is Hard Knocks signing off.
