The kickoff show at SummerSlam on Sunday night had the crowd laughing out of their seats. You ask why was there so much laughter.

The sponsors for WWE and SummerSlam is Kentucky Fried Chicken or we all know it by KFC. The WWE held auditions for the next Colonel Sanders, for giggles.

Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, Becky Lynch, and even R-Truth, among others who took the time to audition. Who came out on top? Who was the next KFC Colonel Sanders?

KFC Colonel Sanders was?

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn “Heartbreak KId” Michaels made a surprise appearance on the kickoff show, of SummerSlam.

HBK came out to his Sexy Boy theme, and he was dressed like Colonel Sanders; because KFC was the sponsor of the kickoff show.

HBK came out and danced around the arena. However, Shawn Michaels was not the original pick for the role. Who could it be?

Original Pick?

Reports on Twitter by W2’s Justin Labar that it was suppose to be The Nature Boy Ric Flair; to play the part of Colonel Sanders. Plans were changed because Ric was admitted to the hospital for surgery. Shawn Michaels was more then likely picked due to honor Ric Flair, and he is such close friends with the Nature boy himself.

Writer’s Thoughts

Ric Flair would of done just as good as Shawn Michaels, as the Colonel. Ric probably would of threw some of his famous “Wooos!” in there.

A wooing Colonel Sanders?

Just the images in my head is making me laugh. What do you think about the choice? Do you think HBK did a good job? What about the nature boy? Do you think he could pull it off as well? Leave your comments below and share your thoughts.
