A new e-book based on Shawn Michaels will be available on December 27 through iTunes and Amazon. The 70-page book, titled Diary of a Heartbreak Kid, will be released through WWE and is co-authored by Shawn Michaels and WWE writer Craig Tello. The official synopsis is posted below:
It’s the week of Wrestlemania, an event that began the same year as Shawn Michaels’ decorated career, an annual spectacular that The Heartbreak Kid seized time after time as his personal stage of excellence. Such a grand setting could not be more appropriate for WWE’s one and only Showstopper to add “Mr. Hall of Fame” to his myriad monikers.
From his debut in 1984 to his final WWE match in 2010, the world has seen Michaels allure audiences and perform like no other entertainer in history. But that’s inside the ring. What if you could walk beside the incomparable Heartbreak Kid outside the squared circle, beyond the curtain and spend four days with the man living a boyhood dream?
Diary of a Heartbreak Kid shadows Shawn Michaels for an immensely poignant occasion of reflection, introspection and celebration as The Heartbreak Kid is inducted into the esteemed WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 2, 2011.
In a moment-to-moment narrative, Diary captures the raw emotions and unfiltered candor of The Heartbreak Kid as he’s reunited with family, friends and a veritable who’s who of squared circle lore – Triple H, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Ric Flair, The Rock, Vince McMahon – all of whom have crossed and shaped Michaels’ path to the Hall of Fame.
With his beautiful wife, two jubilant children, time tested faith and nearly three decades of four-cornered memories, the retired Michaels steps back into the warmth of the limelight during the weekend of WWE’s grandest extravaganza to experience the greatest honor in sports-entertainment. And with Diary of a Heartbreak Kid, you’re riding shotgun.
