Quote Despite injury concerns, Shawn Michaels will wrestle Randy Orton on tonight's PPV. This match or maybe on RAW tommorow may be his last for some time before he is on hiatus to undergo surgery - the extent of Michaels' injury isn't known yet but it is said to be serious and may put the Showstopper out of contention for some time.

I guess the injury must be really bad for the guy to have had such a short and meaningless match. It would be easy to feel sorry for Randy not having a good win in front of his hometown fans, but the wellbeing of HBK has to be the main priority when all is said and done. I believe with his wife being involved and all that, that this will mean HBK being out for a while. He must be really seriously wrecked to have to have timeout at a time when the roster has been decimated by injuries.

I think it said that he suffered a concusion because of all the head injuries he has been having. One of the injuries i think was because of the great khali when he slamed hbk through the table on raw.

Quote ST. LOUIS – Last night, Shawn Michaels suffered a severe concussion at the hands of Randy Orton during their match at Judgment Day. WWE’s Dr. Ferdinand Rios told WWE.com that HBK has been sent home for further evaluation after suffering what is his second concussion in three weeks.

As Dr. Rios explains, "a concussion occurs when the brain hits the skull. The brain floats in fluid in the skull, and when you stop moving suddenly your brain continues moving forward. When the movement is severe or caused by a blow to the head, the brain shifts and hits the skull. When it moves like that, it can tear veins and bleed in extreme cases. In general, there’s a brief period of loss of consciousness."

One concussion is bad enough, but multiple concussions can seriously damage the brain.

"Someone who has repeated head injuries, we worry about damage to some of the areas of the brain," Dr. Rios explained. "Our Superstars wrestle on a regular basis, and while their CT scans may be normal, we worry about repeated concussions because we may be missing something inside the brain. In this case, we can’t really determine how long Shawn will be out. Swelling is swelling, inside the brain or not, and you have to wait for that to go down to get the true extent of the injury."

Michaels has a long history of concussions, dating back over a decade. In 1995, he was assaulted in Syracuse, N.Y., and suffered a severe concussion, one that forced him to relinquish the Intercontinental Championship. One year later, a vicious kick to the head from Owen Hart concussed HBK once again, nearly costing him his opportunity to face Bret Hart for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania XII. More recently, HBK has suffered two concussions in three weeks, the first one coming during his match with The Great Khali on May 7.

However, Shawn Michaels is a fighter with the heart of a champion. After being severely concussed against Khali, doctors told HBK not to compete against Edge on Raw. Still, in a heroic act that proves you can’t keep the fighting spirit of Shawn Michaels down, HBK answered the bell…but at what cost? During the Raw match, the Rated-R Superstar focused his vicious attack on Michaels’ head, and while HBK valiantly fought through that onslaught to win the match, a sadistic stomp to the head by Randy Orton after the bout couldn’t have helped matters.

As Orton said in an interview with WWE.com last week, "Did I intentionally punt Michaels in the head? Yes, I did. It’s not my fault that he had a concussion from his encounter with The Great Khali last week, and it certainly won’t be my fault when I target his head again this Sunday at Judgment Day."

Orton did just that, gunning for his opponent’s weak spot and sending HBK to a medical facility as a result. A concussion is not a "normal" injury in that the effects can linger for a long time, and in some instances after severe concussions, people are never the same again.

According to Dr. Rios, HBK will have to be out of action for an undetermined amount of time due to the concussions. Shawn Michaels has battled back from numerous injuries before, including a severe back injury that cost him four years and nearly ended his career….but this is different. The brain is perhaps the most vital part of a sports-entertainer's body, and if brain function is impaired, a Superstar could put himself into a dangerous position by stepping back into the ring.

HBK may never be 100 percent again, and speculation is rampant that this may be the straw that finally breaks the proverbial camel’s back. Let’s hope that the events of the past few weeks didn’t kill the legend of Shawn Michaels once and for all.

Well I never realised so much that HBKs wife is actually fairly attractive for the older woman. This whole injury angle is just a lame attempt to start the whole rumoured Orton/HHH fued. Orton can say he put HBK out of action and HHH take revenge for his mate. Although Khali started it all but we have to forget that and play dumb for the WWE creative. The kayfabe WWE article is much bigger than they usual, thus probably trying to get across the importance of it all.

Quote As I reported yesterday, the exact damage to Shawn Michaels’ knee will not be known until he undergoes the actual surgical procedure, although WWE is hoping to have him back by Survivor Series. However, any return date at this point is nothing more than speculation. Michaels has been removed from all RAW events for this summer and the main event plans have been changed once again.

Survivor Series? Wow it would be a shame to have him out so long. Plus it will put any chance of a DX reunion even further back. Being the team player he's been since his born against Christian stuff, you have to think he will be hugely disapointed to be having a rumoured six months out. I do however believe WWE made too much fuss on Raw about his concussion. Too many smarks out there know he doesn't have concussion and re-hashing something from 1995 is a lame way to write him out.

Knee surgery I have heard of him needing that surgery for nearly a year, but it would be good to see Shawn Michales at the Survivor Series considering its the 10 year anniversary of the screwjob.

I don't think they'll do anything significant for the 10th year anniversary of the Montreal Screwjob. They had the opportunity to do so by holding the show in Montreal but they moved it to Miami. Besides, I don't think Vince needs a reminder for that. He has one every time he goes to Canada.

Quote Shawn Michaels had knee surgery on 5/23. WWE.com didn't report the surgery because the storyline is that he has had had too many concussions and "needs to retire." There isn't an estimated return date for him, but the company is under the impression that he can make it to the Survivor Series in late November.
 
Yes it wouldn't make sense for WWE.COM to report his knee surgery and knacker up the lame concussion storyline that's been used loads in the past. Could they not have said he injured his knee due to dizzyness with his concussion or something? I feel we are missing out on footage of his surgery with the way WWE want to play out the angle. It's a shame that Survivor Series has been moved from Montreal, as HBK returning from injury would have got booed there. Imagine one of the longterm top faces in the company being booed on his return. That would have been the fee on box office to order the show alone LOL

Shawn Michaels had surgery on his knee on May 23. He won't be able to put weight on his knee for a month or two after the surgery, and then he'll be able to begin rehabbing from there.
He had been wrestling in pain for a while. He initially seriously tweaked his knee on Raw on May 14 when he landed awkwardly at ringside during a match. He was sore all week and attempted to wrestle over the weekend, and at that point knew he had to have surgery immediately to fix the damage to his cartilage. Given the type of surgery he had, he should return stronger and in less pain than he's been in for more than a year. Michaels has about three years left on his current WWE deal and he plans to fulfill the duration of it. One source said: "I don't think he gives a sh-- about being the top act alone on any brand at this point in his career. He has pride in what he does, but he doesn't need or want the burden of being built around like Cena or Edge right now."
great, i wasnt sure he was going to return, and i certainly didnt know that he still has a three year contract. i thought he had plans to retire, but thats obvisiously not the case, which is good in my opinion. i hope he gets at least one more run as a world champion before he does retire, and with a three year contract, i have no worrys, he will get that if not more. he is still one of the best, and i never get tried of hearing some of that sweet chin music.Big%20smile
Qouth the draven, nevermore.

I know he's having a new house built in San Antonio.
In a way its good timing, because him and Triple H could both back together as the heel DX. (DX as faces sucks)
