WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is regarded as one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time. Michaels’ charisma, in-ring ability and passion for the sport made him a marquee attraction. However, veteran WWE referee Jack Doan claims that Michaels gave his co-workers a hard time inside the ring.

Shawn Michaels performed for almost 25 years, winning multiple championships and headlining major shows such as WrestleMania. The Showstopper hung up his boots after losing to The Undertaker at WrestleMania 26 in a ‘Career vs Streak’ match in 2010. Nowadays, Michaels is using his years of experience in shaping the next generation of WWE superstars down in NXT as the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative.

Despite being one of the best in-ring workers of all time, veteran WWE referee Jack Doan claims that The Headliner was open about his addiction and was extremely tough to work with inside the squared circle. Doan spoke about this on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s UnSKripted.

“The most difficult, I would say, Shawn Michaels. In two forms, one when he was going through his days, which he is very open about. You know, he was a jerk and going through the times with his addiction and all that. He was very tough to work with in the ring,”


Shawn Michaels wrestled his last match in 2018 after coming out of retirement. Michaels teamed up with Triple H to reform D-Generation X defeating The Brothers of Destruction at WWE Crown Jewel in 2018. Today, Shawn is spending his time developing the current crop of developmental talent in WWE NXT.
