Grown man talks about why he got a haircut

A couple days ago, word got around that Shawn Michaels cut his hair and the Internet, as usual, overreacted. Following the WWE Hall of Fame 2018 ceremony, Tom Phillips actually asked HBK for an explanation on said haircut:

“Because I’m a grown man, I’m 52. I’ve lived in the sticks for the last 10 years. I just didn’t want Bubba from the Barber Shop cutting my hair. I didn’t really... I didn’t honestly know what to do. I don’t know about styles, I don’t know anything about hair care or anything else. So it was just something I wanted to get done.”

What’s really great is he then immediately goes into talking about how the barber who cut his hair took the photos and he didn’t think much of it until he decided to post them on Twitter. And while he doesn’t explicitly say it, stopping himself just short, Michaels makes it sound like the guy cost himself a job and the 30-percent tip ol H-B-Shizzle was giving him.

All for a few minutes of fame.

Which was a headache for Michaels.

Time to move on.
