Michael Cole


0-0 None

.:.:[ Foreword ]:.:. He has sat back, and watched the world of wrestling thrive without his presence. He has watched as the standard for a talented and successful wrestler has lowered considerably, by the likes of those who now occupy the throne as the top wrestlers in the business, namely, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and of course, Hunter Heart Hemsley. The very thought of it makes him sick to his stomach, and this is a sickness he no longer cares to bare. This is why he has returned to the sport he made. The sport that is only a shell of it's true potential without him. The sport that he dominated for years, and throughout that time was recognized as the most resilient, the most charismatic, and by many, the best all-around wrestler in the history of sports entertainment. He knows how significant his presence can be. He knows how many praise him upon the very mentioning of his name. Yes, in his time, he was indeed that good. He era came and left prematurely in his view, and in the view of his fans. He believes he has more fuel left in the tank. Actually, he believes he'll return and be far better than he was before. These are strong words coming from a man who raised the standard in his career in wrestling. Only time will tell if The Heartbreak Kid, The Showstoppa, The Main Event, The Icon of Sports Entertainment, has anything left. History has taught us that we should never doubt The Heartbreak Shawn Michaels. Dare to doubt him now?

That's one mistake The Heartbreak Kid wouldn't MAKE!

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. The scene opens in the Allstate Arena in the Windy City, Chicago, Illinois. Here in the arena, a World Wrestling Federation Event is taking place, as a warm up for the very meaningful Thursday night event, Smackdown!. The place is packed, here simply to be apart of the World Wrestling Federation experience, and, thanks to a promise of a special former WWF Superstar to make a very important announcement in regards to his future with the company. We're taken ringside to Michael Cole and Paul Heyman, who are providing commentary for this special Pre-Smackdown! Event.

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. Time ticks away, Michael Cole, for the big event, Thursday Smackdown!, and I can't wait!

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. Neither can I, Paul, as we get set for one on one action between Al Snow and The Lethal Weapon Steve Blackman.

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Al Snow's music hits the speakers, as Lillian Garcia makes his introduction from the ring. The same is done for the Lethal Weapon, as he makes his way to the ring, with Kendo Sticks in hand. Both are wearing their usual wrestling attire as the bell sounds, and the match begins.

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. Cole, I must say, this was a great idea by those WWF suits, to put together a Pre-Smackdown! Event, which only makes the Smackdown! Event, all the more interesting. The Smackdown! line-up has been released. [ Paul picks up a white sheet of paper. ] It says that in the main event, Stone Cold Steve Austin will take on a past rival, and one of the best wrestlers in the history of the World Wrestling Federation. Michael, this mystery is incredible! Who could it be? Mick Foley?!

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. Paul, my sources tell me that we'll have our answer tonight. Apparently, we'll be joined by only one wrestler scheduled to wrestle Thursday Night, and he happens to be the wrestler who will take on Stone Cold Steve Austin in the Main Event of Smackdown! in a Last Man Standing Match. Kick to the midsection by Al Snow!

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. Let's talk about this for a second, Cole.

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. This has what we've been talking since the beginning of this match, Paul.

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. [ Paul rolls his eyes. ] I don't like smart asses, Michael, so don't be a smart ass with me. Anyway, who do you think it could be? There are a lot of names that come to mind... Like The Undertaker! Or maybe Mick Foley! Well, I hope it's not Mick Foley.

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. Why don't you just wait? The mystery-

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. Waiting is no fun, Michael! I want to figure this out!

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. Wait a second! Here comes Bob Holly!

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. From backstage runs Bob Holly with a steel chair in hand. While Steve Blackman and Al Snow are wrestling, he slides in, as they don't take notice. Then, BAM, he levels Snow with the steel chair, then does the same to an unsuspecting Steve Blackman. He throws the chair down, and exits from where he came.

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. What was that all about?

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. I have no clue... But that's no where NEAR as big a mystery than this mystery opponent for Austin, Michael. No where NEAR!

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. On the Titan Tron, we see a limousine pull into the parking lot. We now change our view of this from the Titan Tron, to a first hand view of what's taking place, from within the parking lot. The crowd gets quiet, knowing not who to expect. A chauffeur steps from out of the driver's seat, and walks to the back of the limo. He quickly opens the back door, and then stands at attention. There's a pause... Then out steps The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels! The crowd jumps to their feet in cheer, as Shawn, wearing a gray white sports coat, with black pants, a San Antonio Spurs hat, and a red shirt underneath, flips a coin in the air, for the chauffeur, with a smile, and  says... 

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Don't spend it all in one place.

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Shawn laughs, then notices the camera. He runs tosses his hair, back, and walks over to it with a smile, always loving the spotlight. As he does, his progress is impeded by WWF Interviewer Kevin Kelly. Behind Kelly, many fans are standing, screaming at the top of their lungs for The Heartbreak Kid.

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. Shawn, Shawn, if I could have a word?!

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Whoa, whoa, whoa, I step outta the limousine, and I got cameras to the left of me, and the Kliq to the right of me. Let me tell ya', when you're this good lookin', being on camera most of your life just comes with the territory.  

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. Shawn, a word, please.

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. I'm sorry, little man, I didn't even see you there. You say you want a what, now?

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. I'd like to have a word with you in regards to, number one, your being here, number two, rumors all over the wrestling world about a possible comeback from you, and three, asking you if you are indeed, Stone Cold Steve Austin's opponent in the Main Event of Smackdown!, just two days away.

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Well, you waste no time, do ya', runt? Let me break it down to ya', like only ole' HBK can. You questioning why I'm here? The Heartbreak Kid does what he wants to do, when he wants to do it. If I wanna show up, as the Spokesman for the World Wrestling Federation, and give the fans a little something to cheer about, and to give all those girls out there a little something to dream about, then I can do that. Answer your question numero uno?

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. Are you indeed the Spokesman for the World Wrestling Federation. How's the job?

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Let's just say I'd trade YOU, for your job. 

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. [ Kevin shakes his head. ] Shawn, onto the second question. Rumors have been circulating, stating that you are planning to make a comeback, not in a non-wrestling capacity, but to actually wrestle once again. Is this true?

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. As true as the sky is blue, Kelly! That's right, The Heartbreak Kid is BACK IN TOWN, and this time, he ain't just here to call shots. [ The audience hits the roof in cheer! ] Oh, no, he's hear to strap on those boots and to shove his foot down ANYBODY'S throat he feels like! I'm comin' back with guns-a-blazin'! I'm BACK to show these cats that the The Kid is back, and BETTER and EVER!

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. I, I, I can't believe this. This kind of news it going to be ALL OVER the magazines!

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Well, duh, Kelly. Maybe in my time away from wrestling, you have forgotten just who the hell I am. Michael Jordan has retired from the game of basketball. He is the greatest player to ever grace us with his presence on the court, like I'm the greatest wrestler to ever grace us with my presence in the ring. Michael Jordan has already passed the torch. And so did I. Michael passed the torch to not one dominant player, but to Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, and Allen Iverson. I passed the torch to Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, and The Rock. Here's where I'm set apart from Jordan. I've comeback to reclaim that torch. I have come back to show the wrestling world that ole' HBK still has some gas in the tank. In my absence, wrestlin' ain't wrestlin'! Now, it's turned into a bunch of crap. There's not a man in the business right now that can put on a show like The Heartbreak Kid. I have the gift, let me tell ya', nobody does it better. Now I can talk and talk and talk, but the question lingering in your mind, "Can he return to his former self?", will not be answered. It won't be answered until I show you just how damn good I am. It won't be answered until you realize that The Heartbreak Kid is STILL the Showstoppa, The Main Event, The Icon of Sports Entertainment, and that a guy like The Rock or Kane can't hold a candle to my greatness. Like it or not, The Heartbreak Kid is back in the saddle, large and in charge, and there's not a damn thing you, or anyone else in the WWF can do about it!

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. This is amazing. This is great for the WWF! We have The Rock-

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Who the hell cares if you have The Rock? All the World Wrestling Federation needs is ole' HBK, and all their prayers are answered. Anything and everything is possible in HBK, Kelly. Guys like The Rock, Triple H. [ Shawn laughs. ] Triple H. I love what Hunter has done with the place. And by 'the place', I mean the World Wrestling Federation. He's really come up in the world. I'm proud of 'em! Keep in mind, though, that he's done all of this in my absence. Well, deliver this message for me to Hunter, Lil' Kev Kelly. Tell him, tell him that The Heartbreak Kid is back, or better yet, tell him the teacher is back, and he's ready to reclaim his throne as the top man in the wrestling business from the pupil. Can ya guess who the pupil is, Mike? It's Hunter Heart Hemsleeeyyy! Who the hell else Now if you would excuse me, Kelly, that Kliq out there awaits the man they ALL came to see, The HB Kid Shawn Michaels!

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Shawn heads over to the entrance to the building quickly, waving at all the fans screaming behind barricades. He steps through the door, only to truly hear the echoing cheers of all in fans in the stands of the Allstate Arena, here in Chicago, Illinois. He stops, smiles, and continues, heading to the stage, until Kevin Kelly catches up with The Heartbreak Kid from behind. He quickly steps in front of him, only to be met with an annoyed look on the face of HBK. He trembles a bit, knowing his on thin ice, as he says...

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. Sh-, Shawn, you forgot about question number three. [ Shawn rolls his eyes. ] You know, the one about whether or not you're Stone Cold Steve Austin's opponent in the Main Event of Smack-

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Gimme that! 

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Shawn rips the microphone away from Kevin Kelly. Kelly stumbles backward in fear.

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. I didn't forget a DAMN thing! Get outta the way! [ Shawn pushes Kevin Kelly aside. ] You wanna know if ole' HBK's in-ring return is on Thursday Night, in the Main Event of Smackdown!, against Stone Cold Steve Austin? Well DO YA'?! [ Shawn looks to the camera. ] Well you're hearin' from The HB Kid first when he says, OH HELL YEAH, Thursday Night, HBK's strappin' on the boots to beat the HELL out of guys like Austin, just 'cause I CAN, like back in the good ole' days! [ The crowds cheering of deafening. ] This is it, Austin! This is it! Thursday Night, you're THE MAN... The MAN chosen to be the FIRST of many to get his teeth knocked down his throat, until Shawn Michaels is holdin' what's his around his waist, which, you guessed it, is the WWF Championship! And then after that, it's gonna be more of the same! Let me tell ya', after ole' HBK is done remodeling this place, there's gonna be a lot of wrestlers spending the ole' Christmas bonus on a little dental work, if ya' get my drift!

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Kelly steps back into the camera's view.

.:.:[ Kevin Kelly ]:.:. So you ARE the mystery opponent?! Wait, what about ring rust?

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Shawn pushes him out of the camera's view, then says...

.:.:[ Shawn Michaels ]:.:. Ring rust?! Ring rust and Shawn Michaels, are like oil and water, we just don't mix. What, you sayin' I'm not ready? This is HBK's big night! Ya' gotta believe, The Heartbreak Kid is ready for anything and everything! Thursday Night is the night where every woman in America will be tunin' in, just like the old days. The Showstoppa brings ratings. The Sexy Boy brings the women. The Heartbreak Kid brings the charisma. Shawn Michaels brings the ass kickin'. Adrenaline is rushing through my system like crazy. It's all comin' back to me now, Kev. [ Shawn begins to stomp his foot, reminiscent of when he's about to deliver the Sweet Chin Music. ] I can't wait. Two days is an eternity for me, but what keeps me going is I know, no matter what, that day is coming. The day when I dance all over somebody's face like the old days is on it's way, baby! The days when this cat was the top guy in America are just around the corner. Michael Cole, I predict some great times in my immediate future, and for the long haul. I left this sport prematurely. And now, I'M BACK, JACK! [ Shawn laughs to himself. He's stopped stomping his foot at this point. ] I just feel sorry for ole' Austin who has to face The HB Kid on Thursday, in one of the biggest nights of his life. And damn... While I see great times in my immediate future, I see one hell of an embarrassment in his.

.:.:[ Scene ]:.:. Shawn just walks away, heading for the stage, as Kelly steps back into the camera's view, emotionless. We go back to Paul Heyman and Michael Cole at ringside, to get their reaction to the earth shattering news of Shawn Michaels' return in a wrestling capacity.

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. Michael Cole, the mystery has been solved, yes, by that idiot Kevin Kelly, but I'm so excited about this, I don't even mind that minor detail. Shawn Michaels, one of the best wrestlers to EVER, you hear me? EVER step into the squared circle. Shawn says he's hear for the long haul, so I must say, I predict some memorable moments in the future, starting THURSDAY NIGHT!

.:.:[ Michael Cole ]:.:. Couldn't agree more, Paul. This is incredible news for the World Wrestling Federation. The talent level is by far better than ever, and the addition of quite possibly the best in federation history, is just the icing on the cake. Well Paul, it looked like HBK was on his way to address this capacity crowd, filled with what he's deemed, The Kliq.

.:.:[ Paul Heyman ]:.:. And did you hear The Kliq roaring as Shawn Michaels unveiled every little detail about his comeback. There almost excited as I AM!
