Professional wrestler Shawn Michaels called it quits after losing a “Streak vs. Career” match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania. See, The Undertaker was…ah, forget it. I just want you to see the video after the jump of Michaels backstage shaking hands and getting a standing ovation from the other guys in the promotion. I was never a big Shawn Michaels guy, but I have no qualms about Eric Gargiulo’s writeup here:
Shawn Michaels has his critics, but I am not one of them. Over the last three decades, Michaels has probably been my favorite wrestler to watch. I just don’t remember many, if any bad Shawn Michaels’ matches…Taking into account all of the pressures of being Shawn Michaels on WrestleMania and continually having great matches, that alone makes him one of the greatest of all time. –Camel Clutch Blog.
It’s not like he’s really retired, right? I mean, not really really retired. He’ll come back at SummerSlam and then hit somebody with a baseball bat while wearing a black T-shirt and crotch-chopping over their still bodies. Or maybe he’ll take up knitting. Retired guys are weird like that.
