In 1991, The Showstopper, The Heartbreak Kid, The Icon, Mr. Wrestlemania, Shawn Michaels was in a tag team with Marty Jannetty known as The Rockers.
The Rockers had been together since 1986 originally competing in AWA as The Midnight Rockers, they would go on to win the promotion's top tag team titles, shortly afterwards they go to the WWF, be released due to a misunderstanding, wrestle in CWA and AWA again before making their way back to the WWF.
This time around, the Rockers were far more successful. They had matches with a good majority of the top teams in the WWF at the time including an extensive feud with the Brainbusters, The Twin Towers, The Fabulous Rougeaus, The Orient Express and The Hart Foundation.
However even after all this success the team was going nowhere fast, as they were trapped in the mid-card, not to mention, Jannetty and Michaels were having personal problems.
Then the infamous Barbershop incident occurred when Shawn threw Marty through the window. That incident that successfully turned Shawn into a legitimate heel in the WWF for the first time.
He would go on to solid mid-card success winning the IC title twice and the tag team championship once.
In 1995 his career started to pick up again after he invoked the power of the turn for a second time and turned face.
He went on to win his third IC title and the next year he began his infamous feud with Bret, winning the Royal Rumble for the second time and facing off against Bret at Wrestlemania 12, winning the World championship.
Roughly two years later, at the height of his career Shawn Michaels would suffer a terrible back injury in a casket match against the Undertaker and leave pro wrestling as an active wrestler for four years.
