Ex-WWE Champion Was Hospitalized After Bar Attack

There is absolutely no doubt that WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels is one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. He ended his in-ring career at WrestleMania 26 in 2010 against The Undertaker in a match that remains loved by both fans and Superstars alike. The Undertaker was also said to have turned down a huge WrestleMania match. 



However, the Heartbreak Kid returned to the pro wrestling ring for Crown Jewel 2018, where he partnered up with Triple H and squared off against Kane and The Undertaker in a tag team match. The match was criticized by both fans and Superstars alike. Many fans also noted how Michaels was completely shaved bald during the match.

HBK appeared on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast and talked about a wide range of topics. He also reflected on the 1995 brawl with six marines that became infamous and resulted in the Heartbreak Kid being admitted to the hospital.

“I know as much as what I’ve known back then because I was all hammered and then I woke up in the hospital.”

Michaels does not discount any of the information that has been given to him regarding what happened that evening because forgetting huge portions of his day was common during that time. It was a never-ending cycle of overindulging, working, and repeating the process.

“I don’t know how accurate that is because we were all not in the best shape. I’m sure I was being obnoxious, but I have no recollection of any of that.”

HBK would often sign off on his release from the hospital despite the doctor’s advice and regardless of his condition. Both his profession and addiction have similar underlying characteristics.

“The last thing I can remember is dropping my coat off at the coat check. Then I’m waking up in the hospital. Unfortunately, I was in that position a lot of times. I would wake up in an emergency room and go get three or four more hours of sleep, go to the gym, go wrestle. I was very functioning.”
