When a man is known as ‘ Mr. WrestleMania’, he must have a collection of impressive matches at the marquee event.
Although he has a 6-11 record at mania, he always had an impressive match when he stepped foot in the Mania ring.
5) Shawn Michaels vs Razor Ramon – WrestleMania XX
This match is one of the first ladder matches in WWE. So, the match was an instant hit with the audience. The match did not have the plethora of high risk daredevil spots that we see in today’s ladder matches, but HBK and Ramon still managed to tell a story and let the match be remembered.
The performance of HBK was excellent, and Razor Ramon kept up, if not stepped up. This match should be a tutorial for today’s wrestlers, so that they can deliver an excellent ladder match, even if the risky spots are reduced.
4) Shawn Michaels vs Ric Flair- WrestleMania XXIV
One of the most emotional matches of all time, this match was the last time Ric Flair wrestled in a WWE ring. Flair was old and nearing senior citizenship, but he still managed to deliver a fantastic match.
The match told a great story. The chops, the moves, everything seemed to tell a story. An emotional HBK said “I’m sorry, I love you” before hitting Sweet Chin Music and pinned Flair.
3) Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker – WrestleMania XXVI
Two years after retiring ‘The Nature Boy’, HBK himself wrestled for the last time, when he faced The Legendary Undertaker for the second time.
All kinds of wrestling variations and styles were explored, and the chemistry between HBK and Taker was obviously excellent.
The Undertaker did a great job in looking like he believed he couldn’t put the resilient showstopper away.
We had Sweet Chin Music after Sweet Chin Music, dives, fantastic exchanges and much more. Taker delivered possibly his biggest and best Tombstone ever to end Shawn Michaels’s amazing career.
2) Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle – WrestleMania 21
One thing’s for sure, whenever WWE promotes a Dream Match, it’s always a grand success. Such was the case of HBK vs Angle.
HBK’s in ring psychology and Kurt’s wrestling mastery were fully observed as the wrestlers overcame the enormous hype.
1) Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker- WrestleMania XXV
This match is probably one of the greatest match in the history of pro wrestling. They told a great story, and managed to make fans believe that HBK could break the streak. The match was so good, that a sequel was spawned the next year.
