Shawn Michaels appeared in thirteen games in the Smackdown game series so far.
Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Shawn Michaels remains one of the biggest superstars in WWE history. His career is nothing short of spectacular and successful. In most of his matches he shows resilience, talent and willpower to win. His main-event success debuted at 1995 where he first won the big one, and went on to lead an illustrious career. He is billed as being the first wrestler to win the Royal Rumble at the number one spot, also to have won two consecutive Royal Rumbles as well as winning every major title in the promotion. In 1998, his career came to a sudden halt where he suffered an important injury during a Casket match with The Undertaker, and decided to retire from wrestling. But in 2002, he made a spectacular comeback to the ring, and shortly went on to win the World Heavyweight championship from Triple H. Up to now, Michaels only looks out to be one of the greatest entertainers alive, or as he simply puts it, The Showstopper.
HBK, together with Triple H, was also the founder of the infamous D-Generation X, which was a great factor of the attitude era. Shawn Michaels has been in hundreds of feuds, including his long time rivalry against Bret 'The Hitman' Hart. Shawn Michaels has been a World Champion, an Intercontinental champion and plenty of others. HBK seems to have proven that he is one of the best WWE superstars this world has seen, or as he says best... an icon.
WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your RoleEdit
Shawn Michaels is able to be unlocked in Season Mode and is initially put into the Non-Wrestler ranks. However, you are free to move him into any rank you wish if you want to make him an active wrestler.
He is listed in the game as the WWF Spokesperson, a role he named himself around the time the game was released.
WWE SmackDown! Shut Your MouthEdit
This would be Shawn Michaels' first inclusion into a Smackdown! game since WWF SmackDown! 2 Know Your Role, hot upon the heels of his successful return to World Wrestling Entertainment in the summer of 2002. Shawn Michaels is, as he has been through his career, big on speed and technical maneuvers while lacking in the power department. SYM is no exception. With speedy moves such as the cruiser-weight combo and high-flying moves such as his signature diving elbow, he is a force to be reckoned with.
His two finishers are two different versions of his Sweet Chin Music, a powerful kick to the jaw that will have opponents reeling.
This is the first and only game where Shawn Michaels has not been playable in season mode. He is fully playable in exhibition mode. Within this game, he has two attires, his default being the attire he wore while in the nWo. His other attire must be unlocked after winning a match at No Mercy during the second year of Season Mode, and it is a typical favorite, a cowboy hat, white shirt and jeans, similar to what he wore at Summerslam 2002, when he faced Triple H in a bloody street fight.
WWE SmackDown! Here Comes The PainEdit
Shawn Michaels makes his return to the SmackDown series, this time designed to be an active wrestler unlike in Shut Your Mouth. HBK is now playable in season mode and debuts some new ring attire for use in his matches rather than his generic shirt and jeans.
