We know there are lyrics somewhere there. We kid cause we care.
Over the weekend, Michaels told The Arizona Republic, “Barring any complications, I should be out within three to four days.” He continued by saying, “Then, I will be down [resting] for three weeks. I don’t know if I can sit around for that long, but I’ll try my best.”
