WWE HOF Shawn Michaels wife, Rebecca Curci once accidentally punched by Chris Jericho

Shawn Michaels is one of the most gifted sports entertainers in WWE history, better known by his ring name, HBK. He started as a member of The Rockers and had an iconic career, which included a memorable bout at WrestleMania XXVI against The Undertaker. He won Royal Rumbles, won many important championships, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Despite his accomplishments, his career was not without controversy, including the “Montreal Screwjob” in the 1997 Survivor Series with Bret Hart and his troubling breakup with Marty Jannetty. In a recent video, WWE showed the time 15 years ago when Chris Jericho accidentally hit the Hall of Famer’s wife. The throwback was a vicious reminder of Michaels and Jericho’s intense rivalry.

During a promo at SummerSlam 2008, Shawn and his wife Rebecca came out to the ring to announce HBK’s retirement. Since this was his first time appearing on TV with his partner, people worried it may be his final appearance in WWE.

In an attempt to humiliate HBK, Chris cut into the program. They spat abuses at one other live on the screen. As their argument grew intense, they started throwing fists where Jericho missed Shawn and smacked his wife, Rebecca, instead.
