A quick write on her husband, Shawn Michaels:

Shawn Michaels, born Michael Shawn Hickenbottom on July 22, 1965, is a retired professional wrestler from the United States. He is regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time and is a WWE Hall of Famer.

Michaels began his wrestling career in 1984 with the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), but it was not until he joined the WWE (then known as the World Wrestling Federation or WWF) in 1988 that he achieved mainstream success. He quickly became known for his athleticism and high-flying moves, as well as his cocky attitude and charismatic personality.

Throughout his career, Michaels won numerous championships, including four reigns as WWE Champion, and three reigns as World Heavyweight Champion. He was also the first wrestler to win the WWE’s Grand Slam Championship, which is awarded to wrestlers who have won every active championship in the company.

Michaels is perhaps best known for his rivalry with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart, which culminated in their historic match at WrestleMania XII in 1996. Michaels won the match and the WWE Championship, cementing his status as one of the company’s top stars.

However, Michaels’ career was nearly derailed by a serious back injury in 1998, which forced him to retire from wrestling for four years. He returned to the ring in 2002 and continued to compete until his retirement in 2010.

Since retiring from wrestling, Michaels has made occasional appearances on WWE programming as a guest referee or commentator and has also worked as a trainer and mentor for younger wrestlers. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011 and continues to be regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
