Sweet Chin Music: HBK brings the high heat

He is The Showstoppa, The Icon, The Main Event ... and he threw out the first pitch ahead of Friday's game at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.

Shawn Michaels once won his second Royal Rumble and beat Bret Hart for the WWF Championship belt in an Iron Man Match at Wrestlemania XII in a matter of weeks. Anything else is just gravy.

So don't hate on the Heartbreak Kid for not breaking off any signature poses or delivering an elbow drop to Ryan Braun while the home crowd screamed its approval. Any appearance by Mr. Wrestlemania that doesn't take place in Montreal is good by us.
