Shawn Michaels started out his WWF career wrestling in a tag team with Marty Jannetty, known as the Rockers. They almost won the tag team titles, but were never successful. While being interviewed by Brutus Beefcake the team split up when Michaels Superkicked Jannetty through the barbershop window! Shawn started wrestling as a singles competitor and a few months later feuded with his former partner.

Michaels quickly won the Intercontinental Championship. At Summer Slam 1992, he feuded with The Model Rick Martell over Sensational Sherri. He won the Intercontinental Championship two more times, and then went on to win the WWF Heavyweight Championship from Bret Hart in a sixty-minute Iron Man Match at WrestleMania XI in Anaheim, California.

He won that title two more times and also in between he won the Tag Team Titles with his bodyguard Diesel. When he wasn't wrestling, he hosted an interview segment entitle "The Heartbreak Hotel." The segment introduced the second, evil Undertaker and Tatanka's heel turn on Lex Luger to the world.

In 1997 he started D-Generation X, along with his friend Hunter Hearst-Helmsley (later known as Triple H). The two, along with Chyna and for a while Rick Rude, dominated the airwaves, defying authority. Shawn Michaels wrestled his last match, losing the WWF Heavyweight Championship to his former tag partner Steve Austin at WrestleMania XIV in Boston, Massachusetts. He retired from wrestling due to an injury.

Since April of 1998, he has become the commissioner of the WWF, and joined the nWo, in 2002. He has been off and on TV a numerous amount of times, but when he is on, fans surely enjoy the time seeing him. The nWo quickly fizzled away, but he remained in the WWE. He made his in ring re-debut against his former friend Triple H at Summer Slam 2002.

He competed at the Elimination Chamber at the Survivor Series 2002 and won the WWE RAW Brand Championship, but lost it to Triple H the next month at Armageddon. He still wrestles on occasion, but that is one special occasion if you can see him.
