After four long years of retirement from in-ring competition, The Heartbreak Kid returned in an angle against Triple H at Summerslam 2002. They are great matches. I do mean great. It was funny because Michaels came back and it was like he had never left. If anything, he was better than he was before. Four years is a long time to not be wrestling and to come back on top of his game was a shot in the arm for WWE. When HBK left after Wrestlemania XIV, the Stone ColdRead More

This was my first Wrestlemania. I was watching wrestling beforehand, but this is where my memory starts for sure and I can confidently say that I remember this. I remember Stone Cold Steve Austin winning the WWF Championship from Shawn Michaels. I consider that match to be the one that made me love wrestling. It was the perfect scenario of me coming along at the right time and Austin being the guy to take the reigns from Michaels. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the WWF had changedRead More

Today, I woke up with a big smile on my face because it occurred to me almost immediately, “I get to see Shawn Michaels win the WWF Championship today.” Not only do I get to see it, we get to see him win it on the grandest stage of them all, but only after an hour of wrestling Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Yesterday, I discussed how close Shawn Michaels got to capturing the gold at the last Wrestlemania against Diesel. Honestly, with the celebrity involvement, the match quality and theRead More

In my opinion, the Boyhood Dream for Shawn Michaels began here when he challenged his former bodyguard and WWF Champion Diesel at Wrestlemania XI in Hartford, Connecticut. I know this event has the hype of the Lawrence Taylor vs. Bam Bam Bigelow match-up as well as the participation of other celebrities. I consider this match the second act of The Heartbreak Kid becoming WWF Champion. Nearly a year removed from the ladder match with Razor Ramon at Wrestlemania X, their rematch at Summerslam and then the split between himself andRead More

Wrestlemania X was a game changer. It opened with one of the best matches Bret Hart ever had against his brother and should be Hall of Famer Owen. As great as that match was, a lot of people define the show by the Ladder Match between Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon. Even though the Ladder Match was a thing before as Bret Hart will continue to tell anyone who wants to turn the spotlight onto anyone else, Razor vs. Michaels was the trend setter. You will see, or rewatch theRead More

I’ve been waiting for this since the beginning. There are four guys that define the Intercontinental Championship for me. They are Chris Jericho, Ricky Steamboat, The Rock and Shawn Michaels. I love watching Shawn Michaels wear that title because i think it is the title that made him. Today, we get to see The Heartbreak kid Shawn Michaels defend the IC Title against Tatanka at Wrestlemania IX. Shawn Michaels was in a feud with Sensational Sherri who was out for revenge against her former boy toy. Shawn’s old friend MartyRead More

We are off and running. The first singles match of Shawn Michael’s Wrestlemania Career. This is where he really needs to step it up because The Rockers are over. He has Sensational Sherri on his side, and he is finally The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. It is going to be a lot of fun to watch Shawn Michaels make the Intercontinental Championship look like a billion dollars. This is the Shawn Michaels that we are going to fall in love again. For Michaels’ solo career, we start with Wrestlemania VIIIRead More

Third time is the charm when it comes to The Rockers at Wrestlemania. After taking losses at Mania V and VI, The Rockers opened Wrestlemania VII in the city of Angels against the team of Haku and The Barbarian. The match would not only be the last of The Rockers at Wrestlemania, it would be part of the last run of the team. A few months earlier, The Rockers had successfully captured the Tag Team Championships from the Hart Foundation, but backstage politics, or other factors are rumored to haveRead More

At Wrestlemania VI in Toronto, Canada, Shawn Michaels entered the Skydome with Marty Jannetty as The Rockers would compete against the debuting Orient Express. Mr. Fuji had sold off The Powers of Pain tag team and brought in Sato and Tanaka to form the Orient Express. Mr. Fuji would showcase his new acquisitions as the WWF’s newest threat to the tag team division. To begin their quest for tag team glory and dominance, they would have to contend with The Rockers. On the same night that a young Edge andRead More

Ladies and Gentlemen, on April 2, 1989 at Wrestlemania V, The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels entered the building. Only he wasn’t HBK, the Showstopper, the Main Event, or Mr. Wrestlemania yet. Once upon a time, Shawn Michaels was a tag team specialist with Marty Jannetty and the two comprised the tag team of The Rockers. The Rockers were a very different team than The Midnight Express, or Demolition. They were known more as babyface high-flyers that were popular with the female and child demographic due to their look, style andRead More

Going back through every single Wrestlemania match of The Undertaker, the Streak has already allowed me to gain perspective on it and appreciate each match on its own in its importance to The Undertaker character. The idea came to me by going back through the two works of art that are the Shawn Michaels/Undertaker matches at Wrestlemania 25 and 26. Those are two of my favorite matches and the fact that The Streak eventually took the career of Mr. Wrestlemania is a testament to its importance. It has occurred toRead More
