AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT SHAWN MICHAELS' CAREER

The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels’ track record speaks for itself. The Showstopper’s career in World Wrestling Entertainment is legendary, as he has accumulated enough hardware to make just about any other WWE Superstar jealous. Michaels was the first-ever Grand Slam Champion, capturing the European Championship once, the World Tag Team Championship twice, the Intercontinental Championship three times and the World Championship four times.


But HBK’s success didn’t just fall on his lap. Although the success didn’t happen over night, the 6 foot 1, 225 pounder from San Antonio, Texas knew he wanted to be a professional wrestler since he was 12 years old after he had seen his first match.

Michaels’ athletic career began back when he was six years old when he started playing football. He became a stand out linebacker and was a captain on his high school team. After graduating, he attended Southwest Texas State University, but he soon realized that college wasn’t the path he wanted to follow. Michaels quickly realized it was time to begin chasing his dream of becoming a WWE Superstar.

Michaels began his training under the tutelage of Jose Lothario. After a few months of training, Lothario felt that his protégé was ready for some in-ring action, and two weeks after his 19th birthday, HBK had his first match with mid South Wrestling against Art Cruz. He lost his debut match, but he improved in his second match, wrestling to a time-limit draw, and won his third match. After a stop in Kansas City, Michaels was headed back to his home state to Texas All-Star Wrestling.
