The latest rumors claim that Shawn Michaels will be on hiatus from WWE through August. Some claim he may even miss Summerslam.
On leave to be with his pregnant wife, the wrestling veteran was originally expected to return after the Vengeance PPV to follow-up on his encounter
with Kane. The angle likely would have set up a match at the Summerslam PPV.
After an extremely long-term feud with HHH, an HBK-Kane feud may be just the first-tier angle WWE is looking for. Thus, even though sources are saying
HBK's absence may be extended, assuming the final buyrates for Judgment Day, Bad Blood, The Great American Bash and Vengeance come in as expected, one
would have to assume WWE management would push for HBK to make a swift return to wrestle at WWE's top-level summer PPV.
