The WWE Hall Of Famer – Shawn Michaels is Coming to 1PW in October to meet his UK Fans – before 1PW & Shawn head to Dubai to finish the tour there.

Capping off a scintillating year that has seen 1PW bring Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, DDP and a host of other major names to the country in a series of incredible UK firsts, 1PW owner Danny Rodd is thrilled to announce the group’s latest ‘talent acquisition’: Shawn Michaels.

Michaels will be joining 1PW for a run of autumn shows, including events in the UK and the group’s incredible tour of Dubai, and sparks are expected to fly as fans get a rare opportunity to come face-to-face with such a legendary performer.

Full details of HBK’s scheduled appearances are as follows:

1PW Black Tie Gala Dinner – 07/10/2011 1PW Shawn Michaels Q&A – 08/10/2011 (including 2-hour photograph/signing session) 1PW Fan Convention -09/10/2011 (photograph/signing session) 1PW Does Dubai – 12/10/2011-15/12/2011 (including photograph/signing sessions)

A hero to millions, one of the best-respected performers in the history of professional wrestling, and now a certified WWE Hall of Famer, Michaels became a household name in a career spanning over twenty years as much for his controversial backstage actions as his superlative matches inside the squared circle. Loved by millions, Michaels is perhaps the biggest icon in the wrestling world and has never yet toured the UK outside of the confines of WWE.
