* TheAtoner: Ever since his RealLife conversion to Christianity, Shawn became this. He tried to tone down his former juvenile delinquent hellraiser persona in the ring and, behind the scenes, work with the current talent and put over younger wrestlers (which he would never have done in the past). Finally, in 2010, he buried the hatchet with BretHart and they came to an understanding regarding his part in the Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a03ZMBIGxOU&feature=related By Wrestlemania 26]] it was clear both wrestlers were finally in speaking terms again.

* RetiredBadass: His retirement hasn't stopped him from kicking people in the face. He's dropped Drew [=McIntyre=], AlbertoDelRio, and a few others, in addition to being the special guest referee for HHH/Taker II at Wrestlemania 28. During that match, Shawn manhandled both guys, and doled out a superkick to Taker for getting a bit chair-shot-happy.

* WildCard: {{Face}} or {{heel}}, Michaels was unpredictable. And it helped that he has one of the very few finishers (along with the Stunner, the RKO, and The Rock Bottom) that can be delivered pretty much out of nowhere. Many a supposed ally or mouthy interviewer found himself with a face full of foot. Michaels also had a penchant for interrupting other wrestlers' promos just because he could (especially Wrestling/KurtAngle).

* ShoutOut: His finisher, Sweet Chin Music, was a shout out to the song 'Sweet Soul Music' by Arthur Conley.

** Michaels seems to be particularly prone to these. He had already experienced one at the 2008 ''Wrestling/{{Unforgiven}}'' pay-per-view, where he challenged Wrestling/ChrisJericho to an Unsanctioned Match after Jericho punched his wife in the face. He whipped his enemy with a belt, injuring him so grievously that Jericho went into shock. The bell was rung, and an announcer declared Michaels the winner of the fight. By this point, however, Michaels was so consumed with rage that [[NightmareFuel his face had gone completely blank]] and he was continuing to mindlessly whale away on the unconscious Jericho as if he didn't understand what he was doing. He finally snapped out of his stupor after a referee tried to stop him and he kicked the official in the face; he then had a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment and finally agreed to leave the ring.

* HeelFaceTurn: A somewhat unique Real Life version. Shawn was known for his selfish primadonna behavior during his prime, but after becoming a Born Again Christian, he underwent a major personality shift, and has by all accounts become a much nicer person in real life. He spent the majority of his career after returning in 2002 helping to put over younger talent, most noteably Wrestling/RandyOrton, Wrestling/{{Batista}} and Wrestling/KurtAngle.

** Which makes ''Wrestlemania XX'' yet again a FunnyAneurysmMoment: the main event was a triple-threat between Shawn, TripleH, and Wrestling/ChrisBenoit, and it's widely regarded as one of the best main-events in the history of the PPV.

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Shawn's return match in 2002 - a hardcore brawl with TripleH - was one of these. Surprisingly, it wasn't one-sided, with both Shawn and TripleH on the receiving end of said beatdown.
