Re: Shawn Michaels back injury saved his life?
Did Shawn have another match after WM14 before his initial retirement?
No. And he needed to be looked at right after the match; he was quite fucked up, physically.
Looking at the timeline, what probably saved Shawn's life for good was that (ultimately rather brief) falling out he and Triple H/WWE had in late March 2001, right before Wrestlemania XVII.
