Jenny Jones Show February 1996
Jenny: Well our next guest is a top ranking fighter
in the World Wrestling Federation. Please welcome the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels !
--- Women Scream ---
Jenny: I might have to pull out a flag here if you
guys don't calm down ! Well Shawn, I talked to you before, and told you my dad was a huge wrestling fan and when these guys
are fans, they're serious fans.
Shawn: From what I understand
Jenny: So you can relate to these guys because their
lives are like overtaken with being sports fans ?
Shawn: Well I don't know ... for me I have more of
a tendency to pay attention to the girls ... That's just me ! I get to be around sports all the time and I don't get to be
around girls that much.
Jenny: What do your fans want from you ? They just
want to touch you ...
Shawn: Let's hope so !
Jenny: What you do is a rough business ... You call
them fights or matches I guess ... How many do you do ?
Shawn: Matches. Last year I was on the road 300 days.
Jenny: Do you ever hurt yourself ?
Shawn: All the time
Jenny: Ever broken anything ?
Shawn: I've broken my hand, I've torn ligaments in
my knees, seperated shoulders, concussions, cuts and bruises ...
Jenny: Concussions ?
Audience Member: Do these fights be real or are they
just for TV ?
Shawn: We're sports entertainment, we make no bones
about that ...
Jenny: But the skills are real
Jenny: When you fall ...
Shawn: The physical activity is very real, but we
want people to enjoy themselves.
Audience Question: Can I rub his chest ?
Jenny: You want to rub his chest ?

got to do it !
Jenny (laughing): Was that a touchdown ? illegal use
of the hands is what I would call that ! You love it Come on.
Shawn: Yes I do !
