Shawn Michaels Advertised For Royal Rumble Kickoff Show

Shawn Michaels is being advertised for the WWE Royal Rumble Kickoff Show.

On the WWE Network Schedule, for the listing of the Pre-Show, you can see here that HBK will be (super)kicking things off with style:

He will appear with Renee Young, Booker T, and a returning Jerry Lawler, who was removed from pre-show duties last year. No word on if this is a one off thing, or if Lawler is back for good on the pre-shows.

As far as HBK goes, this might be a way to get him in the building so that the spoiler spotters don't start throwing rumors everywhere when someone sees him backstage. And then if he gets involved in a match--like costing AJ Styles the WWE Championship vs John Cena or maybe Samoa Joe attacks him backstage--leading to something at WrestleMania, all the better.

The Rumble kickoff-show is scheduled for two hours, and the PPV is set to last four hours.
