10 Forgotten Shawn Michaels Matches You Need To See
8. Team Austin Vs. Team Bischoff - Survivor Series 2003
Shawn Michaels has always had a special relationship with Survivor Series but this particular outing never gets enough mention. In a show that featured Kane vs. Shane McMahon in an Ambulance Match, and the last appearance of the 'American Badass' version of Undertaker, Shawn's performance still stood out, and is surely one of the best feats of endurance in a Survivor Series match that's there's ever been. Shawn was part of Team Austin, which included the Dudley Boyz, Booker T & Rob Van Dam; who were up against Team Bischoff, consisting of Scott Steiner, Mark Henry, Christian, Chris Jericho & Randy Orton. After some quick eliminations for both teams, Shawn was left by himself after three of his team mates were eliminated, leaving him to try and beat Christian, Jericho & Orton on his lonesome. Michaels lasted 3-on-1 conditions for the best part 10 minutes, and even managed to eliminate Christian & Jericho. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE2q7wMkM5w Shawn sold the performance of the guy trying to overcome impossible odds really well, and had the audience in the palm of his hand as it looked like he might actually manage to win. He sadly lived up to the 'heartbreak' part of his nickname though, after some inference from Batista allowed Randy Orton to get the win, and Shawn to fall just short of pulling off a major win.
