During an interview in March with comicbook.com, HBK talks about the classic match that he had with Shelton Benjamin. Michaels praised Benjamin for his athleticism and his willingness to take Sweet Chin Music out of midair. Here are the highlights:
On How The Spot Worked:
It’s one of those ones that it’s lightning in a bottle, that’s the timing and everything else is just so perfect. Because again, you can do that same thing but if the timing isn’t perfect, it doesn’t quite stand the test of time like that one does. That’s one of those moments where everything comes together, and it certainly does not hurt that you have got unbelievably stellar athletes like Shelton doing all of the heavy lifting in that type of stuff.
On Being Thankful For Shelton’s Work:
I’m the guy that got to win, but I will always argue that he is the guy that did the majority of the work in that particular instance. I have to thank him for that.
