SHAWN MICHAELS TO ENTER WWE HALL OF FAME
World Wrestling Entertainment® announced today that one of the greatest Superstars to ever perform for WWE, "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. The induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 2 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA, the evening before WrestleMania® XXVII.
"Shawn Michaels was the best in-ring performer in the history of WWE," said Vince McMahon, Chairman and CEO.
Shawn Michaels had one of the most storied careers in the annals of World Wrestling Entertainment. He held every major championship over his 23 year career with the sports entertainment company. In addition to his "HBK" moniker and as one half of "D-Generation X®,"
Michaels earned the nickname "Mr. WrestleMania" due to his numerous memorable matches at the annual, pop culture extravaganza. Fittingly, Michaels' final match took place last March at WrestleMania XXVI, losing to The Undertaker® in an epic match where he put his career on the line.
Tickets go on sale for the 2011 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony this Saturday, January 15 at 10 AM ET and are available through the Philips Arena Box Office, www.ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets or by calling Ticketmaster Charge By Phone at 1-800-745-3000.
