- While speaking before 500 middle school and high school students at North Way Christian Community in Pine, Pennsylvania, Shawn Michaels admitted to being a drug addict while reigning as WWE Champion in 1996.

Then 30-years-old, his former girlfriend (who briefly became his wife two years later) often had to pick him up in the shower when he fell and drag him to bed from the sofa so she wouldn’t have to sleep alone.

“I was doing everything I could to kill myself except put a loaded weapon in my hand,” Michaels said.

Michaels’ issues with substance abuse continued for years, and as stated in his 2005 autobiography, Heartbreak & Triumph: The Shawn Michaels Story, he became drug free in 2002 after his 2-year-old son struggled to wake him up following a binge on painkillers. To read the full article, click here.

- To honor Cy Young Award winners Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer, the official Twitter account of Major League Baseball has released images of WWE-style belts given to the standout pitchers. WWE re-tweeted the image of Kershaw’s belt.
