Shawn Michaels: Wrestler or Bait Shop Employee?

by Brian Phelps

Has anyone else noticed Shawn Michaels attire whenever he shows up on WWE the last few years? I understand that he is retired, but I wish he had the courtesy to show up at least resembling a professional wrestler.

I can't stand it when he comes out in a pair of shredded jeans and some Wal-Mart hunting shirt. It's like he can't be bothered to actually show up looking like a wrestler.

C'mon, at least look the part. It looks so lazy and unprofessional. Rowdy Roddy Piper is retired, but you don't see him coming out in hunting clothes. Why? Because he's still Rowdy Roddy Piper, and when you commit to making an appearance for WWE and the fans then you need to fully commit and look the part.

I'm not saying he has to wear the chaps and vest, but at least wear a pair of nice jeans and a WWE Shawn Michaels t-shirt.

He is the first semi-retired wrestler I've seen that can't be bothered to show up in wrestling gear. Can you imagine Michael Jordan showing up to an NBA event in jogging pants?

When he comes out to the ring now, he doesn't look like a wrestler anymore. He looks like the register guy at a bait shop. He looks really unprofessional.

How unprofessional would it be if the Ultimate Warrior returned on RAW and cut a promo wearing a Hawaiian shirt?

I'll give Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair credit where it's due. Hulk Hogan ALWAYS maintains his look. He always comes to work looking like... well... Hulk Hogan. Same with Flair.

I understand Michaels is retired, but if he's going to keep showing up on RAW he needs to come to work looking like a professional wrestler and less like he's trying to sell fish hooks and stink bait.
