#2: The Bad Guy does good for himself

Michaels and Ramon battled in the first Ladder match in WrestleMania history.
Michaels and Ramon battled in the first Ladder match in WrestleMania history.

Though 2019 Shawn Michaels may be a kind, God-fearing soul; in the 1990s, by Shawn's own admission, he was a complete wreck.

Despite putting on phenomenal matches in 1993, and riding high as Intercontinental Champion, Michaels' backstage issues led him down a bad road.

After being suspended for drug abuse (though Michaels claimed he was just partying), HBK was stripped of the title live on TV, with Jack Tunney claiming it was because he had skipped too many title defenses.

A tournament was set up to crown a new champion, which culminated in the Bad Guy Razor Ramon winning the coveted title.

Meeting at WrestleMania X, the two would square off in the first Ladder match in Mania history, which saw Ramon capture both belts, as the Undisputed Intercontinental Champion.
