“Shawn Michaels: Mr. WrestleMania” features a unique opening segment. Rather than a typical highlights package, the set opens with Shawn Michaels entering a Pittsburgh hotel. We then follow Shawn into a room where he proceeds to sit down and watch highlights of his various WrestleMania encounters on an iPad, during which HBK provides little snippets of stories. We get to see his reactions to the bigger spots in some of the matches.
During the new interview footage Shawn addresses whether or not he will ever come out of retirement to wrestle again and who it is that pushes for him to stay retired. As mentioned, the WrestleMania 20 match is omitted from the compilation but does get a very brief mention.
Other early notes are that some music has been changed on the matches, for example “Jive Sole Bro” and the Orient Express themes have been replaced. As expected, Jesse Ventura’s commentary has also been removed from the WrestleMania V & VI matches.
The main draw of this set, certainly for long-time collectors, is the stories and memories of the matches by Shawn, and this set is packed with them! So don’t forget to pick up “Shawn Michaels: Mr. WrestleMania” this Tuesday. It’s $19.96 here on Amazon.com.
