Heck, I knew at first glance what a talented young man he was. He came in good, for heaven’s sakes.

He knew it was going to be a long road for him, and none of those things bothered him. He had a fantastic attitude absolutely every day, day in and day out.
Michaels is a guest on the Steve Austin Show to discuss his new show, his WWE career and when he decided to become a wrestler.
In San Antonio. It was right before cable was coming out. I was 12 years old. I was up late for whatever reason on a Saturday, back when wrestling was 12:30 at night on Saturday nights and Southwest Championship Wrestling came on. Just that montage at the beginning just sort of drew me in. That time it was Wahoo McDaniel and Tully Blanchard, they had the big feud going on there. And then when cable came about, that’s when we got TBS then WWF out of Madison Square Garden and then WORTD. It just sort of consumed my life.
Flair talks about his WWE retirement match against Michaels at Wrestlemania:
That night Shawn led the way not me, he wrestled for the both of us (laughs). I didn’t have a say with anything thing in that match which is a first, he actually had the balls to tell the Nature Boy to shut up and listen to him, they are big balls (laughs). The moment just before Shawn goes to sweet chin music me, and he mouths the words ‘I’m sorry’ that was just magical.
