After training with Jose Lothario in San Antonio, Shawn Michaels began his wrestling career in the midsouth territory at the age of 19. From there, he moved on to Kansas City, back to San Antonio and then to the AWA where he joined with Marty Jannetty to form the high-flying tag team, "The Midnight Rockers".
In 1988, Shawn joined the World Wrestling Federation. During his WWF career, he has held the Intercontinental Championship belt three times, the Tag Team belts three times, the European Championship once and the WWF Championship three times. He is the only wrestler in WWF history to capture the "Grand Slam". HBK won two Royal Rumbles and is the only wrestler to enter first in the Rumble and win it. Shawn Michaels has had four matches voted "Match of the Year". HBK and HHH started DX and their escapades in and out of the ring are legendary.
In the fall of 1998, Shawn Michaels became the WWF Commissioner and in January 1999, he underwent major back surgery.
HBK is the WWF's monumental success story; "fairy tale" many would want to live. Shawn Michaels has electrified the masses to a degree never before achieved and is considered the most charasmatic "superstar" in WWF history. Who is better qualified to provide your training?
