Yes another Wrestling tell all bio out there. To think 15-20 years ago no wrestler discussed the ins and outs of the squared circle. Now every wrestler wants to tell their story.
Anyway, Shawn Michael's bio is fairly interesting. He discusses his relationships good and bad with many Kevin Nash, Triple H, British Bulldog, Brett Hart, Owen Hart, and more. Many say his comments on Brett Hart are quite scathing. There's some negativity but some truth. Shawn does gloss over the losing my smile thing. I'm not so sure he is being completely truthful. Shawn's distant attitude when trying out for the WWF with Marty Jannety is discussed. Shawn is fair minded that maybe he should have reached out to the boys. However it seems hard for Shawn to mix well with others. He criticizes Bret Hart for being a loner instead.
The bottom line is that Shawn seems to take you inside the locker room of Sports Entertainment in a fairly detailed away. He also deals with many of his short commings. An enjoyable read overall.

He is one of the most charismatic showmen ever to grace a WWE ring. He was HBK: The Heartbreak Kid - the most resilient champion in WWE. And pound for pound, he may well be the toughest. He was the first Grand Slam champion - the only competitor to hold every title WWE had to offer at the time. Weighing in at 225 pounds, he was WWE Champion on three occasions, defeating men who were close to twice his size. From the very beginning of his spectacular career Michaels gained a reputation for pushing his body to extremes. He was willing to go the limit: to do whatever he had to do to put on a stunning show - and eventually his body paid the price. In his early thirties, an age when most Superstars are hitting their prime, Michaels had to bow out of the spotlight, plagued by recurrent injuries which had ended - or so he thought - his career. But then, sensationally, after four years out of the ring, in June 2002 'The Showstopper' returned to a rapturous reception from which he has never looked back. He is now once again wrestling at his physical peak and it is a measure of the regard in which he is held that in late 2004 no less than 4 million WWE fans voted him the man they most wanted to see take on World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H at Taboo Tuesday. This is the full story of his truly remarkable comeback, and of his glittering twenty-year-plus career.
