Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

It is part two of our three-part Shawn Michaels series. This episode covers Shawn’s run at the top of the company in the late nineties, his early retirement, and the beginning of his 2000’s comeback. We look at matches against Vader & Undertaker, as well as HBK passing the torch to Stone Cold at Wrestlemania 14. From his comeback, we look at his title win in the first elimination chamber and a rivalry match against Triple H. On top of all these matches, Evan & Javier also talk about: 

  • HBK being Undertaker’s greatest rival
  • Ranking the best spinebusters & elbow drops
  • The sauce versus the juice
  • Vader being underrated

And a lot more.
