WWE has more than subtly teased a possible Shawn Michaels heel turn at WWE Hell in a Cell given HBK’s ties to Triple H. HBK has vowed to remain a neutral party during the main event between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton, where he will be a special guest referee.
WWE would be most safe keeping him as a babyface and putting the WWE Championship on Daniel Bryan. This will complete the extended hero’s journey for Bryan, while hopefully giving him a legitimate chance to carry a major championship.
On the other hand, the WWE product becomes more interesting with Shawn Michaels as a heel. The involvement of Shawn Michaels and Big Show in the current storyline has all the makings of an eventual swerve that sees The Authority balloon into a pseudo-corporation featuring Michaels, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and possibly Big Show.
HBK as a heel could convolute a storyline that may have already worn out its welcome, but there is an equal chance that The Authority angle gains steam should Vince McMahon ultimately return to save the WWE.
