Me and my son always watch Wrestling Mania matches on TV together and share the excitement of this “manly” game. Last night we together watched the Wrestling Mania 26 wherein Shawn faced the Undertaker in a career ending match. I admire both the wrestlers. Undertaker for his walk-in style and Shawn for his agility and quick recovery from set backs. Although I once hated him when he playing a two team match with the legendry Hulk Hogan and having won the match, he turned back on the old man being his partner and beat the hell out of him. That was bad. But otherwise he paired with the Tripple H would always attract crowd’s attention.
So back to this career ending match. It was tough and bloody. Despite Undertaker’s powerful blows, Shawn would recover and come back. But then when I thought that he was resting to charge back on Undertaker, Undertaker pinned Michaels after hitting him with two Tombstone pile-drivers ending his career spanning over two and a half decades. It was a surprise seeing him giving in finally when he still looked in some shape.
Shawn Michaels had a unique wrestling style. Shawn Michaels started professional wrestling in 1984 and joined World Wide Wrestling Entertainment in 1987. And he was liked by the crowd like a darling and was one of the few delivered what his fans wanted. Shawn Michaels won three World Wide Wrestling Entertainment championship belts and three Intercontinental belts. He also won one World Heavyweight Championship belt and European Championship belt.
Although, Undertaker walked out with 18-0 pride, the career ending match still had crowd with Shawn and they were really dismayed on his exit, but will remember the brave show put in by him for years to come.
