Added DiffLines:

* EmbarrassingLastName: No wonder he used his real middle name as a first name and his first name as a last name during his career. No matter how talented, no wrestler with the name "Hickenbottom" would have ever gotten ''anywhere.''

** Shawn was on the ''recieving'' end of this when his team with KevinNash (in his "Diesel" persona) broke up in 1995 due to Shawn being jealous that his former bodyguard won the WWF title before he did.

Added DiffLines:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Announced he'd be the special guest referee for the Triple H/Undertaker HIAC confrontation and gloated he held the end of an era in his hands. What this actually entailed was watching his best friend and the man he respected more than any other giving each other an utterly brutal beating for half an hour. His expressions of utter misery throughout tell the story.

** Wrestling/TripleH deserves a mention under this trope as well. They feuded for about three years, a feud which survived several of the classic "feud ending" match types (Last Man Standing, Hell In A Cell, Elimination Chamber, and even a Three Stages of Hell match), before finally being put to rest with an HBK win at a Tribute to the Troops show. All that was really missing was an "I Quit" match, although there WAS a Wrestlemania-headlining Triple Threat in which Wrestling/TripleH submitted (alas, not to Shawn, but to Wrestling/ChrisBenoit).



** Aside from [[Wrestling/TheKliq his four friends]], he tends to make a LOT of enemies.



** During the early days of the Heartbreak Kid, his arch-nemesis was ScottHall (in reality one of his closest friends). The two had a legendary feud over the Intercontinental Title that lasted years.

** Not even his TrueCompanions at Wrestling/TheKliq and Wrestling/DGenerationX were safe from Shawn's tendency to make enemies:

* 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).

** 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.
