The WWE universe knows Shawn Michaels for his unfiltered persona and that made him one of the most iconic stars in pro-wrestling history. He was also part of one of the most well-known stables in WWE, The Kliq. The Kliq was a backstage group in the company composed of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman, Triple H, and HBK.

In his stint, he engaged in many backstage heated arguments with many prominent WWE figures. On the first episode of ‘Kliq This’ podcast, Kevin Nash shared an anecdote about one such heated backstage argument between HBK and Mr.McMahon.

He mentioned how during one meeting Mr. McMahon told him not to ride with The Kliq on which Michaels became furious and replied, “Shawn Michaels basically, you know, got called into the office and they told Shawn that you know he couldn’t ride. And he said, motherfu*ker, remember I’m gonna be on the road for 320 days a year don’t tell me who the f**k I’m gonna spend my time with.”

According to him, this was Kliq’s first message ever. Notably, it was from the era when the Kliq’s four members clashed against one another on stage. They did, however, have a close friendship behind the scenes, and when Vince McMahon urged him not to travel with the Kliq, he reacted harshly.

It is common knowledge that WWE wrestlers must uphold and act in accordance with their personas. McMahon wanted them to maintain their character and act, particularly as they were engaged in conflict. However, HBK fired at him and traveled with The Kliq.

When it came to backstage affairs, the legendary group The Kliq had a lot of clouts. The gang was famous for their antics off the ring as well. It is also said that this behind-the-scenes group had an influence on artistic choices. Sean Waltman, also known as X-Pac, was a member of the Kliq.

However, in 1996, The Kliq split, creating two of the most powerful groups in wrestling history. HBK and the Game found D-Generation X, a group committed to disrupting the balance and wreaking havoc inside WWE.
