"We used to bust each other's balls over all sorts of stuff," Michaels said on the "Games with Names" podcast. "You know, Kevin Nash, big ol' huge guy, and I thought it was cool that he could leapfrog.

To watch this big dude leapfrog, and I had him do it in a couple of matches. One time, we're driving down the road, Scott Hall's in the backseat, and he's like, 'Hey, let me ask you a question.' Kevin and I are up front, and we're like, 'Alright, what is it?' 'How come the biggest guy in the company avoids contact?' And we sat there, and we thought about it, and I was like, 'Man, you're right.

Kevin, don't ever leapfrog again.' ” Inside the WWE, Shawn, Kevin and Scott were part of a group called The Kliq. Triple H and Sean Waltman were also part of the group and it was mostly a backstage group. The group was formed during the mid-90s.

The group apparently had a lot of power backstage, which they showed during a house show in 1996 which was held at Madison Square Garden. At that time, Kevin and Scott has signed with WCW, which was WWE’s rival promotion at that time.

After the match ended, the wrestlers broke kayfabe and hugged Michaels and Triple H in front of the audience. The incident is now known as ‘Curtain Call’. Scott, Kevin and Shawn Michaels were not punished for this, whereas Triple H was punished.

His career was stalled for a while and his push to the top of the company was temporarily put on hold. Through hard work, Triple H eventually climbed the top of the company and after Vince McMahon’s retirement, he now runs the company.
