* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Shawn's theme music was originally sung by his then-manager Wrestling/SherriMartel in third person singing his praises. After he ditched her, he sang it himself, changing the lyrics to first person and singing about just how hot and bothered he makes the ladies.

**To explain it a bit further; Michaels just about begged Vince McMahon (in a promo on Raw) to be allowed to referee the match. McMahon gave it the okay, much to Hart's disapproval - this was before the Montreal Screwjob, but the rivalry was heating up. Michaels declared that if he didn't call the match right down the middle, he'd ban himself from wrestling in the US. Right after Michaels blasts Undertaker with the chair, the look of disgust on his face says it all, as well as the sly look on Hart's face as he goes for the cover.

* PetTheDog: Rick Bognar, who played the "fake" Razor Ramon, said in an interview that he was treated like a complete pariah in the locker room, but the one guy who was nice to him was Shawn of all people, who gave him tips on how to act like Razor and put him in connection with ScottHall to get some of his old gear.

Keep in mind this was late 1996, around the peak of Shawn's real life jerkdom.

* CareerResurrection: One of the biggest in all of wrestling history. After a back injury in 1998 seemed to end his career, Michaels returned in 2002 and stunned everyone by being ''better'' than he'd ever been before. With an attitude change to give other guys the rub, he spent the next eight years putting on sensational battles to solidify his legacy as a great.

On a tangential note, Michaels is the spiritual father of Wrestling/TheKliq -- essentially the Creator/RatPack of pro wrestling -- who had the run of WWE for a few years, and ultimately pulled the trigger on the Wrestling/MondayNightWars. Micheals' protégé, Wrestling/KevinNash, would perfect the Kliq system with a little club called the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder nWo]].

* LightningBruiser: He was one of the first "small" wrestlers to get over in the WWF and become the "top" champion but he is still larger and stronger than a lot of other wrestlers, such as Rey Mysterio.

** Kevin Nash mentioned in a shoot interview that when he first met Shawn he was surprised at how much bigger he was in real life than he looked on TV. At the time Shawn was about his bulkiest though, around 240lbs.

* LivingLegend: Shawn is arguably the greatest professional wrestler of all time, and you can bet your ass he knows how good he is. Perhaps best exemplified (other than his entire 90s run) during a promo with Daniel Bryan, in which Bryan refused to accept Michaels' apology for the events of Hell in a Cell 2013. After ranting about "humbling himself" and demanding "the respect [he's] earned," Bryan STILL wouldn't have any of it.

-->'''Michaels:''' Let me tell you somethin', you self-righteous little puke! For seven months, I've been listening to people call you a B+ player, and the whole time, I have stuck up for you, saying "No, he's an A+ player." You wanna know something? I quite honestly don't know, and what's more, I don't care! What I do know is ''this:'' I am an A+ player. I always have been, and I always will be. [[LargeHam For the love of God, I am Shawn Michaels]]! I'm giving you the chance, on worldwide TV, to shake my hand! Now do it!

** Let's go into a bit of detail about the event. Immediately after the event, and years later, Shawn would vehemently deny being a part of it. He would eventually come round and admit to screwing Bret, particularly in his book Heartbreak & Triumph. As Shawn tells it he, Vince, and Wrestling/TripleH were discussing the Survivor Series main event and how Bret would absolutely refuse to lose the belt to Shawn. After Hunter was encouraged to share his views, he took a stand on Bret needing to do the right thing. This caused Shawn to just come out with the screwjob idea, something he and Hunter thought Vince had planned but wanted them to propose.
