Speaking on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Dax Harwood first said, “I told him, ‘Man this happened, tore my bicep, went through a really dark period and thought I was going to quit but thankfully I have the greatest wife in the world and she has supported me and brought me out of this funk and out of this dark place and I’m here now, I’m super happy.”

In reply, Michaels claimed he too had such a dark period. He further added, just like Harwood’s wife did, his wife also supported him and pulled him out of that dark spot. However, after Shawn Michaels and Dax Harwood went in front of Shawn’s friends, he made fun of the member of The Revival.

The former WWE superstar added, “As soon as we got in front of his friends, he started making fun of me and making fun of my situation and what happened with my bicep. I was like man I just poured my heart out to you. (H/T: WrestlingInc)
