Shawn Michaels was one of the most prominent figures in the New Generation Era of the WWE. He contributed to the beginning of the Attitude Era before being forced into retirement in 1998 due to back problems. In 2002, he eventually made a comeback to the ring. However, he recently talked about the time he partied while he was on the road, and he managed to balance them.
Michaels was well known for going out to parties in the 1990s. He recently appeared on the Games with Names podcast, where he talked about managing his partying habits and his WWE schedule.
“Well, look, we made time for that. The one thing is there was always after the show. Clearly, at this point in my career, I was at least good about waiting until after the show. I would get to a point to where it was any time of day if I felt like it. It was, you know you mentioned it earlier, it was kind of a rockstar lifestyle. It could be a lot of fun, and you could be, obviously, the life of the party, a pretty popular guy. It was not a bad gig, shall we say.”
Before leaving for the next place, Michaels would frequently party after the events because he found it difficult to sleep while on the road. With the exception of times when he had to stay late at work to fulfill his responsibilities as Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative at WWE, he claims that he now frequently goes to bed by nine o’clock.
