That allows for a follow up promo where Michaels says Hunter was right about something - that if he's going to put his career on the line, it needs to be with family. So he brings Nitro into the Clique. He says he's never had a protegee, someone to carry on his legacy -but now, with Johnny Nitro, he does. He says the Clique's a brotherhood, spanning generations, it transcends alliances, stables, titles - that once you're in - you're in for life.
He has Nitro make the handsign. Johnny Nitro joins the Clique.
