Shawn Michaels Adds ‘Mr. CAC’ to His Amazing Resume

Shawn Michaels Adds ‘Mr. CAC’ to His Amazing Resume
By Greg Oliver

He was “The Showstopper,” “The Heartbreak Kid” and “Mr. WrestleMania,” but on Wednesday night at the Cauliflower Alley Club reunion, Shawn Michaels was a humble man, appreciative of the gifts he has been given, including the Lou Thesz/Art Abrams Lifetime Achievement, and the people who helped him achieve his boyhood dreams in professional wrestling.

Slipping his suit jacket back on as he ascended the stairs to the podium at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Michaels, now “Mr. CAC,” was ready to make people laugh, to share some stories, and to head out in a reasonable amount of time, as the final presentation of a great night of awards. 

But before he could speak, the evening’s emcee, Jim Ross, got to say his part, calling it “the main event portion in my eyes,” and that he was “envious” of Michaels’ peace now, and that was not always the case. 

Perhaps to prove Ross’ point about the notoriously fun-loving, controversy-stirring Michaels, the Thesz/Abrams award winner was presentated by his Kliq pals, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and Kevin Nash. 

A “Hey yo” started it off from Hall in his Razon Ramon persona, and he launched into a tale about meeting Michaels in the old Central States territory, and how, even as a rookie, there was a reputation for him already as someone who could perform. Up next was Waltman, who said that “just being in the ring with you I was 10 times better a performer.” The 1-2-3 Kid turned X-Pac then thanked Michaels for getting hurt so Waltman could join D-X and “make a lot of money.”
