The Main Event, The Showstopper, Mr. Wrestlemania, The Icon are all nicknames that describe who is Shawn Michaels.
He was an outstanding high flyer without being limited to that style. There was also a great technician hidden behind his flamboyant character.
If he had modest debuts in the tag team division, he didn't hesitate to grab his chance in singles competition. He then started to write a full chapter of the WWE history book when he became The Heartbreak Kid.
He was ready to do anything to entertain the audiences. Even when he was not in the main event, he always found a way to steal the show. He participated in six ladder matches, including the first ever against Razor Ramon at Wrestlemania X. As further proof of his great innovation, HBK was also in the first ever Hell in a Cell and Iron Man matches.
Michaels is the first Grand Slam Champion. In addition to his four World Championships, he won the Intercontinental Title three times, the European Championship once and he is a six-time Tag Team Champion.
If that's not enough, he one of the three to have won the Royal Rumble twice, the two others being none other than Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin.
HBK also holds the unreal record of 10 Pro Wrestling Illustrated Match of the Year Awards, and he was in one of the four five-start matches in WWE history: The classic ladder match at Wrestlemania X.
