WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels popularised his signature move 'Sweet Chin Music' so much that an MMA fighter applied it in order to knock out his opponent at Legacy Fighting Alliance 33 in Dallas. ‘Sweet Chin Music’ is arguably one of the deadliest finishing moves in WWE’s history, which involves kicking your opponent straight into the chin. Shawn Michaels has been pulling off the stunt for a long time in the WWE but the tables have turned since MMA fighters are applying it inside the octagon too.
The flyweight contest of Legacy Fighting Alliance 33 ended in a shock as Isaiah Gutierrez’s tasted a deadly ‘Sweet Chin Music’ from his opponent with 1:30 minutes left of Round 3. The video of the fight has been making rounds over the internet for a few days. However, Shawn Michaels is yet to respond over the MMA stunt that impersonates his WWE legacy.

Well, this not the first time something like this has happened. Famous Wrestling finishers are actually deadly physical moves and MMAA fighters have used them in a lot of occasions. In 2018, Jonno Mears made his opponent Aaron James tap out by applying “Walls of Jericho” at an event billed as “Full Contact Contender 19”
There are no official reports about Shawn Michaels' appearance in the upcoming WrestleMania 36. However, WWE fans highly expect their very own ‘HBK’ to appear. Despite retiring from the sport, Shawn Michaels is highly connected with WWE where he coaches young talents at the WWE Performance Centre in Florida. Throughout the years, Shawn Michaels has made numerous surprise entries at WrestleMania and this year is expected to be the same.
