WWE Hall of Fame star Shawn Michaels already has some great DVDs released with both a biography and his best matches. According to prowrestling.com on Oct. 13, there is another Shawn Michaels DVD on the way in 2014.
The new DVD will include Shawn Michaels’ Wrestlemania matches and should come out in either February or March 2014. The rumors surfaced this weekend and Michaels himself confirmed the upcoming DVD on his Twitter account. From Wrestlemania 5 through 26, Michaels wrestled in 17 matches, some that are considered the best in WWE history.
Here is a look at the matches that have to be included on a DVD for the wrestler nicknamed “Mr. Wrestlemania.”
Wrestlemania X saw one of the biggest ladder matches in WWE history, as Michaels and Razor Ramon fought in one of the first of its kind and pretty much made up the rules as they went along.
The biggest Wrestlemania match in Michaels’ career was Wrestlemania XII when Michaels fought Bret Hart in the legendary 60 minute Iron Man match that saw Michaels win his first ever world championship.
Wrestlemania XIV was the final match for Shawn Michaels when it looked like his career was ending. His back was destroyed from a match with Undertaker and in this match he passed the torch to Stone Cold Steve Austin. To imagine that Michaels’ back was destroyed at this time, watching him was a complete inspiration.
Wrestlemania XIX saw Michaels return for the first time since he originally retired and he wrestled Chris Jericho in one of the best matches on the entire show.
At Wrestlemania 21, Michaels tuned in one of his best technical wrestling performances, and it was no wonder since his opponent was Kurt Angle. While Michaels lost many of his Wrestlemania matches, he walked away from this one with the win.
At Wrestlemania 22, Michaels fought WWE chairman Mr. McMahon in a no disqualification hardcore match and it was one of the most brutal and chaotic matches in Michaels Wrestlemania history.
Wrestlemania XXIV was the big match where Shawn Michaels beat Nature Boy Ric Flair to force Flair to retire from the WWE. It wasn’t a perfect match, but the emotions and storytelling was perfect.
After that, Michaels got back-to-back Wrestlemanias where he tried to break the Undertaker’s streak. Michaels lost both matches, the second meaning he had to retire from the WWE.
One match that won’t be on the DVD is Michaels’ Wrestlemania XX three-way bout with Triple H and Chris Benoit. The WWE refuses to release any of Benoit’s matches since the former WWE star killed his family and himself.
