Michaels Returns, As Will DX

Chris DiFrancescoAnalyst IAugust 11, 2009

The long-awaited return of the showstopper, the headliner, the main event, and the icon came to fruition last night on Monday Night Raw. The heartbreak kid Shawn Michaels will return with Triple-H to reform Degeneration-X to take on Legacy at the biggest party of the summer, SummerSlam on Aug. 23.

At first it wasn't looking too good for Triple-H last night when he found HBK working as a chef in a San Antonio luncheon. Michaels told the king of kings that "he didnt want to hear it, anymore," meaning that the likelihood of his comeback was vastly dropping.

There had been no sign of Shawn Michaels ever since his loss to Undertaker at Wrestlemaina in an epic match. Finally, however, in a corporate cafeteria? Yes, It appears HBK had decided to go underground, working as a cook, when his former DX partner pleaded with him to reform DX and compete against The Legacy at SummerSlam.

To The Game's relief, and the WWE Universe's delight, Michaels agreed.

As I had said a week ago that it was about time that HBK returned to TV, and he didn't disappoint as he seemed to look rejuvenated and charismatic as usual. The duo of the most dominating force of all time will return to try and end the rampage that has been controlled by Legacy member Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase.

Will this be a one-night only DX reunion? I highly doubt it at this point in time. A hopeful lengthy return is needed and wanted by the WWE and its Universe.

Degeneration-X has some unfinished business to take care of. Remember when they were back going full-time? Their story ended when Triple-H tore his other quad and they had to abruptly end their program with Rated-RKO and everything was halted and rearranged.

With Michaels healthy and rested and The Game being in the best shape of his career, a long DX program should be in the works as we speak.

Expect DX on Raw next week from St. Louis. I'll be on vacation in Florida, but I can write from my handheld device, possibly.

Summerslam is shaping up to be a special one, an event that might be worth our $39.95. Well, for me, i'll just pay to watch HBK and HHH show everyone how its done the right way, the way the WWE fans want it to be.
