He should have titled it, "DAMN! I just stole your book title."
Damn! Why did I just buy this book?
I enjoy how open this dude has been about the fact that he knows he got to hang on way longer than he should've.
I wonder when he first asked himself, "How am I still here?" I'm guessing it was in the middle of opening the envelope to a paycheck at some point.
Best story so far is Shawn Michaels repeatedly screaming at JTG for repeatedly having his hands vaguely crossing around his crotch area. Only HE and HUNTER are allowed to engage with their crotches.
probably waking up one morning after weeks of trying to file for unemployment and he finally straggles out to the mailbox to find 4 paychecks from Titan Towers in his mailbox and hes all "Wuh?"
Didn't Shawn yell at Umaga for having the same colored tights as Hunter?
Shawn Michaels: possible dick.
The greatest lie in wrestling is Shawn Michaels' "change in attitude" because he became a born again christian.Did he quit drugs because of it? Yep. Now he's just a sober douchebag with an even larger superiority complex because he thinks he knows something you don't.
Yeah, this was 2006. The Mania 23 sulk fest was in 2007. Can we pinpoint when Nice Shawn actually is meant to have started?
"Nice Shawn" was supposed to have started somewhere between NWO Shawn and Summerslam 2002 Shawn, from what I understand. So some time in 2002. I could be wrong.
My favourite part of pranks and gags are the ones where the prankster gets punched.Hard to do that over the phone. But I guess that a gag song isn't really worth a punch, maybe just a grimace.
They were silly not to do more with Cryme Tyme, although honestly they should have put someone else in there with JTG and used Shad as a bodyguard or monster heel. Mike Tyson's former bodyguard just writes itself: a guy so tough the baddest man on the planet needs him to watch his back.
This is so spot-on that it kinda hurts. It also didn't seem like Shawn had to try very hard to flip the switch back on to heel in 2005. Even if Shawn is a douche, though, fuck it. He still entertained me more than anybody else.
I always wondered why Shad Gaspard got two names, and JTG didn't even get one.
Oh, no doubt. I totally agree. Best in-ring guy from an entertainment perspective of all-time. Still a giant douchenozzle.
Think of it more positively: Shad didn't get three initials!
Only 99 cents?? That should cover the cost of the book cover graphics.
66p for us in the UK

I think that's a little harsh. When you hear stories about what he was like back in the day vs. what he was like during the second portion of his career, it sounds like it was night and day. I think the issue is more that people expected Michaels to be absolutely perfect, which obviously he wasn't. In the near decade that he changed his attitude, what were the major negative stories about him? Complained about Umaga wearing the same tights as Hunter? Complained about JTG doing crotch movements while DX did the same? These are pretty tame things, even without comparing it to the nightmarish stuff he used to do.
Someone did, I can't remember if it was Shawn, or how Umaga's tights were too similar to Triple H's.
Hey now. He over sold for selfless professional Hulk Higan and told Chris Jericho off for drunkenly swearing around his family.
DAMN, THANKS FOR THE PLUG!!!!!!!!
Why would it even matter to Shawn anyway? Who would get Umaga and HHH confused in any case, let alone because they were wearing similar tights?
They're like twins!
I like how he went into detail about wrestlers court, but as you read something crazy happened the day he was set for trial.... ha only 20 pgs left n i bought it an hour ago. very quick read and not bad for a buck.
Because wrestlers are weird? Tazz was pissed at someone for wearing orange around 2001, Shane Helms became Gregory so he wouldn't be confused with Shane McMahon, R-Truth couldn't wear camo when DX started wearing it...
Any good stories?
"Damn why did i buy this book ?"
If he can afford Starbucks, he doesn't need my 99 cents!!! Also, having the word "doesn't" spelled wrong doesn't bode well for the rest of the book. These are words that autocorrect would pick up.
Give em a Hamburglar. Grimace kicks ass.
ha at the end he mentions thou shalt not shit in a gym bag, unless your a top talent.
They teamed them with Cena. That is a HUGE rub.
That looks like something Pat Patterson would be thinking to himself.
