WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is a legendary name in the world of pro-wrestling. He is quite influential since his days as an active star in WWE. It seems that he didn’t have a good backstage reputation in the company during his main event run in the mid-1990s. On the latest episode of his podcast, AEW veteran commentator Jim Ross revealed that The Grimm Twins’ run wasn’t successful due to the former tag team’s heat with HBK. Shawn Michaels previously broke his silence on AEW departures.
Shawn Michaels had a beef with the tag-team
Donald and Ronald Harris were a highly-rated team that experienced two stints in Vince McMahon’s promotion. Formerly known as “The Blu Brothers,” the twins didn’t get along with Michaels and ended up having a massive fight at an MSG show. Jim Ross recalled that the Harris brothers were least terrorized by Shawn Michaels’ backstage power and were not afraid to stand up to the former world champion. Here’s what Jim Ross disclosed while talking about The Grimm Twins and why their careers failed to take off in the WWE:
“I think they were not real pro-Shawn Michaels. They weren’t going to be intimidated or made to think that they were in a place they couldn’t get out of or what have you. I think there was a little heat there with Shawn and the Harris Twins. I know they had a confrontation at the Garden in the locker room. They weren’t going to be trifled with. They weren’t going to be intimidated, and they didn’t care Shawn had Vince’s ear. It’s just them. They couldn’t care less, and it worked out for them as they left,” revealed Jim Ross.
Donald and Ronald Harris were fired from WWE after the team refused to legitimately hurt the Legion of Doom in a match.
