Big Sean vs Shawn Michaels

Not only does G.O.O.D. Music playa Big Sean share his famous “Big” moniker with some of the game’s late greats (Biggie Smalls, Big Pun, Big L, Big Daddy Kane, etc.), he also does with his government name and a certain entertainer. Real name, Sean Michael Anderson, XXL couldn’t help but connect Sean’s first and middle names with pro wrestling hall of famer, Shawn Michaels. Yeah, the spelling of the two are different but, the commonality between shines brighter than their charismatic personas. Taking this into perspective, along with our wrestling knowledge, XXL created a tale of the tape between the two superstars to distinguish some of their other similarities. —Ralph Bristout (@XXLRalph)

    It’s disturbing how terrible XXL’s digital game is compared to Complex. The Source is even worse so at least you guys have that to help you sleep at night.

    I would say that I hope this article is a joke, but I feel like that would be complimenting the XXL staff by inferring that this is humorous. I hope this does not happen again…
