Shawn Michaels

"I think I'm cute! / I know I'm sexy! / I've got the looks / That drives the girls wild!"

Quite possibly the most controversial and popular superstar in WWE history, from his days as one half of the tag team "The Rockers" to the infamous interview in the Barbershop with Brutus the Barber Beefcake which led to their split, to a solo career that brought him to new heights, to forming a faction that revolutionized sports entertainment, and waging war on WCW. Due to his natural ability to never be outperformed by anyone he became known as Mr. WrestleMania. He is known by many names, but the one name that outshines them all is his go-to name "The Heartbreak Kid".

Personality

HBK is on this page for countless reasons, though he has very strong morals and will never hit a woman. In the 1990's he was brash, cocky, arrogant and sometimes crude, particularly when he was in D-Generation X. He was a womanizer, and would sometimes cheat in his matches to win. His personality changed when he returned after four years in 2002, due to his conversion to Christianity in real life, and from then on rarely did anything villainous. On occasion though, he was still known to betray his tag team partners just as he did to Marty Jannetty years earlier.
