Shawn Michaels net worth: Shawn Michaels is an American professional wrestling personality who has a net worth of $17 million. A former professional wrestler, Shawn Michaels wrestled in the WWE for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2010. He has won numerous titles, including a record eleven Slammy Awards, and he was four time world champion.

Born Michael Shawn Hickenbottom on July 22, 1965 in Chandler, Arizona, the former professional wrestler has worked with the WWE as an ambassador and occasional referee since December 2010. From the age of twelve, he knew he wanted to become a professional wrestler. His athleticism began at the age of six when he started playing football. After graduating high school, Michaels (Hickenbottom) attended college at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, but decided college wasn't for him and he pursued his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. He trained under a Mexican professional wrestler named Jose Lothario and made his national debut at the age of 20 in the American Wrestling Association (AWA). During his stint wrestling within the WWF/WWE, Michaels headlined major pay-per-view events between 1989 and 2010, including five main events for WrestleMania. At the suggestion of 'Mr. Perfect' Curt Henning, Michaels adopted the nickname 'The Heartbreak Kid' and with the new name came a vain, cocky persona. Over the span of his wrestling career, Michaels perfected twelve signature moves: Arm trap crossface, Figure-four leglock, Skin the cat, to name a few. He was married to Theresa Wood (1988-1994) then later married form WCW 'Nitro Girl' Rebecca Curci in 1999. They had two children, son Cameron and daughter Cheyenne.
