Shawn Michaels is easily one of my favorite wrestlers of all time.
His in-ring ability and timing is some of the best of all time, and though he was never on par with the likes of The Rock or Randy Savage on the mic; (to be fair, no one is) few could deny he could cut a good promo.
That being said, as demonstrated in the clip above, no man; no matter how awesome, can escape the hilarious effects slow-motion.
It’s like an undeniable fact of universal physics.
Any voice, sped up or slowed down, automatically becomes comedy gold.
Oddly enough, slow-motion Shawn Michaels is one of the more hilarious examples of said phenomena.
Something about the way he and other wrestlers, most notably HHH; linger on their words, and stretch out their syllables, just makes them sound really fucking funny when slowed down.
Truth be told, slow-motion HBK doesn’t sound all too different from the real thing, however the change in his speech cadence, results in him sounding more than a little drunk.
