Real name is Michael Shawn Hickenbottom, is more commonly known by his in-ring name: Shawn Michaels, and is always called Shawn. One of the most talented today in the business of sports-entertainment. Very charasmatic, can still get a reaction from the crowd, and can still work a great match. Was involved in the 1997 Survivor Series screwjob of Bret Hart. At first he denied any knowledge of the "Montreal Screwjob" but, he later admitted that he and Triple H (Paul Levesque) knew all about it, and were in on it as well. That was over 10 years ago people. I think it's time to let it go. Devoted husband and father, a recovered drug addict, and a born again Christian. Did a non-nude spread for Playgirl magazine, and didn't find out until after it was published that Playgirl is a homosexual orientated magazine. This was/is found humerous to his fellow wrestlers.
