After his loss to WWE Champion John Cena at Backlash 2007, Shawn Michaels had to beat him at a RAW episode of 30th April 2007 to gain another shot at the title. But Shawn Micheals, along with 2 other contenders for WWE championship – Edge and Randy Orton, was attacked backstage by some unknown attacker. The perpetrator came out upon being called out by Cena and he was none other than The Great Khali. On 7th May, Shawn Micheals demanded his match against Cena but got Khali for the no 1 contender for WWE Championship. Micheals tried to dominate the No Disqualification match using a chair, baseball slide, his moves and whatnot. But nothing seems to be stopping Khali. At last, Michaels tried to hit a DDT on Khali on the announce table but Khali chokebombed him instead. The referee called Michaels disqualified after a count-out.
