After seeing that little thing during Smackdown where they run through the cities the WWF is coming to I noticed that on March 7th, next Smackdown they will be in San Antonio which is already sold out. And according to the WWF Calendar the show will actually be live on Thursday not recorded on Tuesday. IF they do plan on using HBK wouldn't this be a logical time to use him?

Seems to me that not only would it be logical but since it is scheduled live they are going to be looking for a big ratings boost. Having HBK come back keeps it as "secret" as the WWF possibly can since no spoilers can be posted. There is going to be all the usual speculation on the net but I would guess more people than usual will tune in just b\c they won't know what is going to happen.

wellllllllllllll if they aren't going to bring him back on a ppv it seems the next thing to do would bring him back in a town where the fans would be familiar with him. and doing it live should add to the He's back! feeling for his fans.... i guess we will see considering we wont have spoilers.

I honestly think they should hold HBK back till after Wrestlemania. There's no need to introduce a new player two weeks before the PPV, especially one who'd make as big an impact as Shawn. I'd personally say team him with HHH and reform D-X to fight off the NWo after HHH moves on from Jericho post WM. Admittedly, I'm kind of conflicted about that.
Shawn and HHH are damn funny together (and god knows I miss Hunter's sense of humor these days) and the Clique generally work extra hard when wrestling each other. Plus, a great way to introduce them would be to have the D-X video feed and music jump-cut in and out of the NWO b&w fuzzy-feed one night and watch Hogan/Hall/Nash look around in panic. Well, I'd mark out like a little bitch anyway.
D-X is probably stale and HHH might not need the stable baggage as a face. Plus, the lone-wolf face fighting off the gang of thug heels is usually a nice angle and could work better for a HHH - nWO feud.
I'm rambling...and who am I kidding? I want Shawn back, anytime, in any form, s'long as he's healthy and ready to go. He's probably the best wrestler, in terms of in ring, in North America ever (IMHO, your mileage may vary). Whatever he does, however much of a jerk he is backstage, I just wanna see the bastard wrestle again.

I think if HBK is coming back, you gotta do it at wrestlemania and you gotta do it in the main event. He's not exactly the Ultimate Warrior, but something along the lines of Rock beats Hogan, nWo comes out and beats Rock down, Austin comes down, gets the same as Rock, and then Sexy Boy rocks the arena and out comes Michaels.

Oh, Shawn! -- I am such a mark for Shawn. I would love to see him back, now. Bringing back DX to battle the stinkfest that is nWo would be like butter on bread; tasty. I agree it might not be prudent, but could you just imagine the chills it would bring? I'd be jumping up and down in my own home. But, I'm sort of a nerd, anyhow.
