When wrestling fans think of Shawn Michaels, they typically think of the “pretty boy” character that he portrayed in the 1990’s or the later run that he had in WWE during the 2000’s. One aspect of “The Heartbreak Kid” that has remained constant throughout his career is he long flowing locks of hair. Whether he has been a member of The Rockers or DX, the chances are strong that wrestling fans always picture Michaels with long hair. Fans may remember when Triple H cut his long hair a few years ago only for him to never attempt to regrow his hair. It now appears that Michaels has followed in the footsteps of his best friend and has decided to cut his hair.
Shawn Michaels has been retired for a number of years now and has moved into somewhat of an occasional behind the scenes role working for NXT. Alas, at the age of 52, it was confirmed that Michaels recently decided that it was time for him to let go of his ponytail. Michaels received a haircut from a local barber in Florida earlier this week. After adorning a ponytail for over two decades, Michaels has now shed his locks in favor of simply having shorter hair. Fans have been reacting to the news on social media with mixed feelings on the matter. A few photos of Michaels before and after his recent visit to the barber shop can be found in the link posted down below:

A few weeks after it was confirmed that Jeff Jarrett will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend, Jarrett attended his first WWE event since 1999 when he visited the recent Smackdown show in Nashville, Tennessee. WWE cameras have picked up a lot more footage of Jarrett detailing his career and return to WWE, and those videos have been released on the company’s official YouTube channel. One video in particular sees Jarrett discuss his return to WWE and recent meeting with Vince McMahon, which led to Jarrett getting emotional. The videos are all part of an online “WrestleMania Diary” series chronicling Jeff Jarrett’s surreal return to WWE.
