Career Profile: Shawn Michaels 1988-2010

Shawn Michaels has had a huge career in the WWE. 16 years in WWE alone. Now that he has retired we thought it was a good time to do a profile on him. During his training he adopted the name Shawn Michaels. He was trained by Jose Lothario. Who was a mexican wrestler. He then appeared as Shawn Michaels with Mid-South Wrestling and Texas All-Star Wrestling, at this time he was 19. Shawn Michaels made his national-level debut at the age of 20 in American Wrestling Association. In 1987, he teamed up with Marty Jennetty to become The Rockers. The Rockers were signed by a competing promotion: the World Wrestling Federation. They were fired two weeks later. They were resigned to the WWF a year later.

The Rockers lasted from 1988-1991

Then Shawn Michaels became HBK (Heart Break Kid) who's reign was from 1992-1995. Which is when he fought Brett Hart for the title. First time he fought Hart he lost at his first pay-per-view. This where he had alot of his fighting with Brett Hart. In 1987 HBK performed in the first ever Hell in the Cell match. His oponent was Undertaker.

Shawn Michaels left wrestling in 2000 then returned during the NWO that reigned on WWE. He spent much of his time fighting with Triple H. After that during 2006-2007 he fought with Vince McMahon. In 2007-2008 there were various feuds featuring DX which was Michaels and Triple H.

His career came to a close with Wrestlemania when he lost to the Undertaker. His last match stipulation was Undertaker's streak versus Shawn Michael's career. The following Monday Shawn Michaels said Goodbye to the audience and that "Shawn Michaels has left the building."
