New Customs: HBK and Tyler Black August 5, 2010Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
2008 saw two of the best wrestlers in history engage in a memorable feud. At SummerSlam, Shawn Michaels was scripted to announce his retirement from professional wrestling, until Chris Jericho punched Michaels’ wife in the face. On the August 25 episode of Raw, Michaels denounced his decision to retire and challenged Jericho to an unsanctioned match at Unforgiven, which Jericho accepted. The following week, Michaels and Jericho held a scripted official contract signing for the unsanctioned match. During the contract signing, a confrontation with Jericho occurred. A predicament ensued when Michaels suffered a small tear on his left triceps, though Michaels was medically cleared to compete in the match. At Unforgiven, Michaels defeated Jericho, after the referee stopped the match, due to the severity of the beating Michaels was giving Jericho.
This custom figure is based on the Unforgiven unsanctioned match, with Shawn Michaels in street gear ready to pummel Jericho into oblivion.
